It’s the first time I am using the Potted Geraniums Bundle…I’m not sure why I haven’t pulled this set out until now!
I used one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders to emboss a panel of Basic White cardstock and then adhered the embossed panel to a card base of Mossy Meadow. These 3D embossing folders are a new release as part of the Online Exclusives, and they are awesome. As the name implies these are only available online! You won’t find any of the Online Exclusives in any catalog.
From small scraps of Poppy Parade and Calypso Coral I used the dies from the Geraniums Dies to cut out the flower tops. The leaves were die cut from Granny Apple Green and Mossy Meadow. I used the two-step stamps to stamp the flowerpot using Cajun Craze ink. I assembled the flower top, leaves and flowerpot and adhered this to the card front. A linen double bow was added to the base of the flower stem.
The Geraniums Dies includes a pretty, decorative sentiment label die and I used this die to cut out a sentiment label from Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment onto the label using Cajun Craze ink. I then used the dark shade of a Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend to outline the sentiment label. The label was popped onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the inside panel, I stamped an additional sentiment from the Potted Geraniums Stamp Set and then stamped the small flower marker in the lower right corner. The inside panel was then adhered to the inside of the card.
Several Brushed Brass Butterflies were added to the card front to finish off the card. I always decorate my card envelopes but opted not to this time.
Don’t forget that you can still purchase beautiful bundles and designer series paper from the Annual Catalog! The catalog is active through the end of April!
