Winter is hanging on way to long! So, I hope this springtime bouquet is something you enjoy while waiting for more sun, and less snow and cold.
How I made this project:
- Create a floral bouquet with some of your favorite floral stamp onto an A2-sized piece of white cardstock. (Note: use the largest floral stamps first and stamp them to form a floral arrangement with open spaces between them, then fill in the open spaces around the larger flower images with small ones or dots until the arrangement looks nice and full).
- Trim down the A2 floral card front to 1/8 inch on all sides so that the final size is 4.0” by 5.25”.
- Mat the floral card front to a piece of colored cardstock that picks up one of the main colors in the stamped floral arrangement.
- Mount the entire piece on to a horizontal A2 card base.
- For the sentiment:
- Die-cut the sentiment 4 times from the same cardstock used to mat the floral arrangement.
- Adhere each of the 4 sentiment pieces together (I like to use liquid adhesive). Let the sentiment piece dry.
- Adhere the raised sentiment piece to a piece of vellum (I used micro-sized glue dots behind the sentiment). The vellum piece should be cut to a size slightly large than the die-cut sentiment.
- Adhere the vellum piece to the center of the card. (Note vellum was used behind the die-cut sentiment to make the sentiment stand out and mute the floral pattern behind it).
Supplies used in making this project:
- Stamps: Concord and 9th: Peek Through Patterns (floral shapes); Concord & 9th: Love You, Mean It (tiny flowers and dots).
- Dies: WPlus9: Basic Greetings dies (‘smile’).
- Inks: Versafine Clair in Charming Pink, Glamorous, Purple Delight, Verdant, and Cheerful.
- Cardstock: Neenah Solar White 110#; Papertrey Ink: Raspberry Fizz (mat and die-cut sentiment)
Hope you like this project. Have a great day. Spring can’t be far away!
