Good morning, everyone! It’s Cassie here. Who else is happy it’s Saturday morning? I know I am! It’s a day where I can get a lot of crafting done and maybe some baking if I’m lucky 🙂
Today I have a simple yet pretty card to share with you. I combined some images from the Hello Gorgeous set to create a pattern background and used a big, bold sentiment to draw the eye in. Let’s take a look!
I started by die cutting a stitched rectangle for my panel that all of my work would be on. I really love the stitched detail of these dies. They make this floral card look even more finished. Next I grabbed three different flowery images from the Hello Gorgeous stamp set and stamped them all over the panel. A good trick to go by is to stamp the largest image a few times around the page first and then work your work down to the smallest image you’ll be using. This way you can space your images better and fit more of what you want on the panel. It’s good to have a small image too, so that you can fill in any blank spaces. I ended up doing this with the single flower and it really helped even out the pattern.
Next I grabbed one of my Copic markers, turned on an episode of Friends, and went to town! Coloring in this blank background space is a little time consuming when you’re trying to navigate around the dainty leaves and petals, but it looks so pretty in the end that it is definitely worth it! I used one of my favorite Copic colors, R81. When that was finished I went ahead and stamped ‘hello’ towards the left center area of the panel. I used my black VersaMark and heat embossed clear embossing powder over top of it. This gave me a super glossy black sentiment that stood out from the dainty flower prints.
The finishing touch was to add a few diamonds from the Honey Bee shop for some sparkle. This is hard to see in the photos but adds a fun aspect to the card in real life. I really love the way these embellishments shine! I attached the piece of paper to a card base and the project was finished! I hope you enjoyed my card for today! I think this is such a pretty look, and for people who don’t want to mess with color combos this is another beautiful way to use flower images.
Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!
