Silver Pearl Floral Greeting Cards
Happy Tuesday, wonderful crafters! Phew, time is flying and… I cannot even believe that we’re in the 3rd week of August. So, on today’s blog I’ll be sharing with you these two floral cards that I’ve create for the “Pearls” monthly challenge over at the WOW! Embossing Powder Facebook Page using the beautiful WOW! Silver Pearl Embossing Powder which goes perfectly for a tone on tone look with a touch of sparkle in today’s cards.

To begin with, I started by treating a big piece of Whisper Card stock with the Embossing Powder Tool because, I was going to stamp and heat emboss the flowers from the Delicate Flowers Stamp Set with WOW! Embossing Ink and WOW! Silver Pearl Embossing Powder for a tone on tone look. Once the heat embossing was done, I colored the flowers and leaves in with Prismacolor Colored Pencils in pink, yellow and light green tones. Right after the coloring, I ran through the die-cutting machine the colored flowers along with the Delicate Flowers Die Set to die-cut the flowers and leaves out of the card stock and, as soon as I was done die-cutting them I set them aside while I was prepping the card panels for both cards. As, for the card panels, I treated two A2 size of Whisper Card stock with Embossing Powder Tool and, I stamped each of them by using the Stripe Jumble Background Stamp and WOW! Embossing Ink which right after that, I heat embossed with WOW! Silver Pearl Embossing Powder to keep the tone on tone look. Once, the powder was melted from each of the card panels, I trimmed their edges slightly smaller than a standard A2 size card base. Lastly, I adhered the backing of one of the card panels to an A2 top folding white card base with double-side tape and I saves the second card panel for the second card. In the meantime, I ran through the die-cutting machine the I Love You Shadow Wafer Die to die-cut each of its layers out of the same whisper card stock because this die comes with a shadow layer, I ran once again the shadow layer through the die-cutting machine but this time to die-cut it out of craft foam just to add dimension to the sentiment once was adhered to the card as you can see in the picture above. So, to finish the card off, I adhered a cluster of flowers that I created with the leaves and flowers that I had previously die-cut it, I adhered some with liquid glue and others with foam squares to give them a bit of dimension. As, for the sentiments, I layered the I love you by stacked them in with liquid glue. As, for accents and embellishments, I adhered some Pink Moonstone Sequins here and there for a touch of shine and I covered the flowers with Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen for a touch of shimmer.
For the second example, I adhered the backing of the second card panel to an A2 top folding white card base with double-sided tape and adhered the second cluster of flowers and leaves that I created with the leftover flowers and leaves that I had preciously colored and die-cut at the beginning of the post. For the sentiment, I ran through the die-cutting machine the Hello die to cut it out of whisper as you can see this die also comes with a shadow layer so, I repeated the same step as, I did for the I love you that I used in the previous example. To finish the card off, I adhered Pink Moonstone Sequins here and there for a touch of shine and I covered the flowers with Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen for a touch of shimmer.
For a finishing look, I decided to add Glossy Accent to the center of each of the flowers and I added some details to the flowers by using a white colored pencil. Well that’s all for today friends, I hope these cards inspire you to give these designs, and the challenge a try! As always, I appreciate the time you take to read my blog posts.
