A Duo of Fragrant Flowers and Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper
January 25, 2023
I thought I had a great idea for a card using the Fragrant Flowers stamp set and the Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper. I didn't like it. I am not a metallics kind of person and the idea included gold embossing- a lot of gold embossing. So today I have 2 cards for you. It's a combination that tries to downplay the gold.
Here are the two. It started as the top card embossing with the bottom card center. So what do you think. To tell the truth I'm just not sure.
This card has a base of Blackberry Bliss, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. Stamp around the edges of the card front with the large flower from Fragrant Flowers in Versamark. Cover with gold embossing powder and melt with the Heat Tool.
The center piece is cut using the Scalloped Contours dies. Cut a flower from the Favored Flowers DSP. Use the Fragrant Flowers dies or your Paper Snips to cut it out. Glue or add the flower with dimensionals. The saying is stamped in Blackberry Bliss on Fresh Freesia card stock. Fussy cut around the words and glue to the card.
For this card stamp around the outside part of the front of the card with the same flower but in Blackberry Bliss.
Cut some of the Favored Flowers paper out with the Deckled dies.
Cut out some flowers with paper snips. You won't find this exact group of flowers. I cut from scraps. A couple of the flowers were even from the edges of the paper. I tried to place them together in the middle of the layer. Just play with it. Them them after you have them together with dimensionals.
Cut some of the leaves and buds from the Distressed Gold Specialty paper in the annual catalog. Add them with glue wherever you think they should go.
Stamp the saying as on the first card and cut around the words. Glue.
For both card the same inside works quite well.
The sayings are from the Beautiful Thistles stamp set.
That's it. What do you think? I'm so glad you stopped by today.
