It’s Thursday and that means it is time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I can’t wait to see what my team members have created this week! We have a sketch challenge for the Hop today.
I couldn’t help myself! I pulled out the Framed Florets Bundle and the gorgeous Fitting Florets 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper to create a birthday card for today’s blog hop. Here it is.
I started off with a card base in Night of Navy. A panel from the beautiful Fitting Florets 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper in a Soft Succulent print was added to a mat of Gold Foil and this was added to the card front. The two-flower image from the Framed Florets Stamp Set was stamped onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Memento ink and colored in with Stampin’ Blends in Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, Soft Succulent and So Saffron. These colors work so well together! The flowers were die cut using the coordinating die from the Framed Florets Dies set.
Several leaves and florets were die cut using Gold Foil and Night of Navy cardstock. These components were arranged around a die cut circle of Evening Evergreen topped with a circle using the Soft Succulent print from the Fitting Florets 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. The circle unit was added to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The die cut flowers were also added to the circle using a combination of Stampin’ Dimensionals and liquid adhesive. While the ovals provided in the Framed Florets Dies set are gorgeous, the die cut flowers and leaves look equally amazing around the circle focal point.
I stamped the sentiment onto a Night of Navy sentiment label using Versamark ink then dusted gold embossing powder over the sentiment and heat set using my heat tool. The sentiment label was matted to a piece of Gold Foil and adhered to the lower portion of the circle unit on the card front.
An additional sentiment was stamped onto the inside panel in Night of Navy ink, and I stamped the multi-leaf image in the upper left and lower right of this panel, also using Night of Navy ink. This same image was stamped onto the envelope front. The inside panel was adhered to a mat in Gold Foil and then adhered to the inside of the card.
To finish off the card I added a piece of coordinating designer series paper to the envelope flap and trimmed around the flap to finish off the envelope.
I hope you like my card for today. I think the gold touches against the Night of Navy, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen really add a touch of elegance!
