Today I am sharing one of the cards I made for our team swap featuring the Botanical Blooms Bundle. I love the look the neutral colors create.
I started by die cutting out all of my pieces with the Botanical Builder framelits. Loving this set of dies. I did find it worked best to use the Precision Base plate with the magnetic platform with these dies. The Big Shot die brush is also a must have to easily get all the little pieces loose from the die.
Flower image is cut out of Smoky Slate cardstock.
The skinny leaf is cut out of Silver foil paper.
The flower center and 1 of the large leaves is cut out of Basic Black cardstock.
The other large leaf is cut out of Basic Grey cardstock.
I used the border die to cut the Botanical Gardens vellum. Did you know this beautiful vellum stack is FREE as part of the Sale-a-bration promotion with a $50 purchase? Click here for full details about Sale-a-bration.
I used a sponge dauber to burnish black ink in the center of my flowers.
I added a bit of sparkle to my flowers with the clear Wink of Stella pen. I must say this is one of my favorite new items in the Occasions catalog. It adds just the perfect touch and dries very quickly.
I added the center to the flower with some liquid glue and used my bone folder to curl the petals of the flower.
I stamped the veins on the grey large leaf with memento black ink. I curled the edges of each of the large leaves with the bone folder as well.
This is how the pieces looked after I curled them.
I adhered the left side of my vellum layer to the front of a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Basic Black cardstock with a couple of mini glue dots. The adhesive does show thru the vellum a bit so on the right side of the card I attached it with the silver mini brads.
I then adhered the leaves to the card front with snail adhesive.
I attached the flower to the card front with dimensional dots.
I added dimensionals to the back of the black cardstock layer and attached it to my 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Smoky Slate cardstock base.
Hope You Enjoy,
