Be Kind Floral Greeting Cards
Happy Saturday, Friends! On today’s blog, I’d like to share with you these two floral greeting cards that I made using the new Be Kind Stamp by The Gray Muse. Even though, I’m not an expert when comes to water coloring, I did have fun loosely water coloring the beautiful flowers and leaves from this set with just two color and metallic accents. So, with that being said, let’s jump into the blog post. ↓
To begin with, I started by prepping two white card panels by using the Embossing Powder Tool. Once the card panels were prepped, I stamped the floral cluster from the Be Kind Stamp with Embossing Ink on each card panel and then, I added Gold Pearl Embossing Powder. Right after, I heated set them with the Heat Embossing Gun Tool until the powder was completely melted. Because, I used Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper for the card panels, I was able to do a loosely water coloring so, for the water coloring part I used my Genuine Craft Watercolor and Prima Marketing Metallic Accents pallets to color the floral images in pinks and greens tones. As, for the sentiments as you can see in the picture above, I water colored one of the sentiments for one of the cards using metallic accents.
After the water coloring, I put the card panels aside to dry for a few minutes. In the meantime, I cut, scored and folded two A2 top folding white card bases and, by the time that I was done prepping the card bases both of the card panels were dry so, for the first card I ran through the die-cutting machine the card panel along with one of the Stitched Rectangles Die Set to add the stitching around the card panel. Once the die-cutting was done, I adhered the backing of the card panel to one of the white card bases with craft foam to add dimension. Lastly, to finish the card off, I added Glossy Accent to the letters for a metallic and dimensional shiny look.
For the second example, I ran through the die-cutting machine the second card panel along with one of the Nesting Rounded Rectangle Dies and, once the die-cutting was done, I adhered the backing of the card panel to the second white card base with double-sided tape.
Lastly, to add dimension I decided to stamp once again the floral cluster with Embossing Ink and gold heat embossed it with Gold Pearl Embossing Powder in a piece of white card stock. Once the heat embossing part was done, I fussy cut out the letters from the cluster and, I adhered the backing of each of them with foam mounting tape on top of the letter from the card creating a 3D effect.
Finally, to finish both cards off, I decided to add some Pink Moonstone Sequins here and there for a sparkly finishing look. Well dear friends, that’s all for today! I hope these cards inspire you to give these designs a try! As always, I appreciate the time you take to read my blog posts.
