Hi guys! So today I am sharing a different style of card for me with the Simply perfect layered blooms from Spellbinders. I must say, I fell in love with this die and I think that it is a really versatile one and a must have. Flowers is not always my thing, but this die set is just perfect. This card took me a long time to make, but I had so much fun making it!
I started this card by cutting a white cardstock with the Hero Arts nesting rectangle dies. I used one of the bigger of and one inside to make a frame. Then, I embossed my panel with the Tim Holtz lumber embossing folder. After that, I used Antique Linen, Tea dye and ground espresso distress oxides to ink blend the embossed panel. This is my go-to combination color to make it look like wood.
Then, I used the die set and die cut A LOT of the pieces, at least twice or more. Almost all of the flowers, I stacked them up twice to give a lot of dimension. For the coloring part I used distress inks.
- For the white flowers: I used weathered wood and mustard seed.
- For the orange flowers: I used mustard seed, spiced marmalade and crackling campfire.
- For the blue flowers: I used Tumbled glass and salty ocean.
- For the leaves: I used old paper, peeled paint, rustic wilderness and crushed olive.
I assembled everything and glued only the center of the flowers so I could pop up more the petals.
I foam mounted my frame and added some of the flowers with foam and others with only glue. The sentiment is from Lime Citron and I added a bit of Antique Linen distress oxide ink on it. The white of the paper added too much contrast with the rest of my card. I added all of my panel on a Milk Chocolate cardstock from MFT stamps. As always, to finish my project, I added small white lines with my gelly roll pen. I also added some gems from Lucy’s card.
Hope you like my project! Thank you for visiting me!
