I have had so much fun the past couple of days with the Altenew & Spellbinder’s Fun with Florals class. Today I want to share one of the cards I made during the class with you. This card features the new Four Petals Collection from Spellbinders. If you LOVE florals then this is definitely a collection for you! The card I am creating uses the Floral 3D Embossing Folder, the Bloom Reflection Etched dies and the new Thanks Enclosed Sentiment dies as well as the Scrolled Punch & Pierce Plate.
I started by cutting a panel of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb card stock. I placed it into the Floral 3D embossing folder and taped it with low tack tape. I then used Altenew Frosty Pink ink and lightly inked the flat side of the embossing folder. I ran this through my die-cutting machine using the embossing sandwich.
Once embossed, I ink blended the Frosty Pink ink around the edges. This really creates a subtle, pretty background.
Next I used the Scrolled Punch and Pierce die plate and a light pink card stock and die-cut it. I am only using one of the middle pieces. I pulled scraps of pink, blue and green card stock and die-cut multiple flowers and leaves from the Blooming Reflections dies. I glued them together and added pearls to the centers of some.
Using the Thanks Enclosed sentiment dies I cut the word hello from a pink and the shadow from Spellbinder’s mirrored gold card stock. I also cut the shadow from several pieces of scrap white card stock and glued them together and adhered to the gold shadow sentiment.
The area behind the sentiment seems to lack something so I found some gold striped washi tape and adhered it behind the Scrolled Punch & Pierce frame. I glued the sentiment on top. I added foam strips to the frame and adhered that to the embossed panel. I then arranged the flowers and leaves. Some are popped up with foam and some are glued with liquid glue. I also added some pearls to the frame.
The main card panel is adhered to a top-folding A2 card base with double sided adhesive. I am thrilled with the result. What do you think? I would love to read your comments below.
