Inspiring Iris - Day 4

I'm back with day 4 of my Inspiring Iris Week.  I love this stamp set.  Here is my card for today.

Inspiring Iris Whisk & Barrel for July by Jo Anne Hewins

Did you notice that this set also has a beautiful carnation?  That's what I'm using today.  I'm also using one of the new In Colors Rococo Rose.  It's perfect for the carnation.

So the Rococo Rose base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Stamp the background.  I used the same color.  Stamp across the top.  Don't be afraid to go off the top.  Vary the height of the flowers.  The patterned paper across the center of the card will hide those stems so don't worry about them.  Stamp across the bottom.  For these, most of the stems will be off the page.  Again, vary the height.

The Rococo Rose scripted paper is part of the 2019-2021 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper stack.  It measures 1 1/2 x 5 1/2.  Use your grid paper to get this layer straight across the card.

The Whisper White layer measures 2 1/2 x 3 1/2.  Stamp in Memento Black ink.  I started in the middle and then worked to each side.  Stamp the flowers in Rococo Rose and the stems in Pear Pizzazz.  The colored parts do not fit exactly to the black image.  That is just part of the stamps.  

Wrap some Linen Thread around the layer 2 times and tape to the back.  Add a bow with a rolled up glue dot.  The word hello is stamped in Memento Black.  The hello is from the Free as a Bird stamp set.

Add this panel with dimensionals.
