Whimsical Wildflower Cards
I hope you are having a fabulous day. On today’s blog I would like to share with you these two very clean and simple whimsical floral cards. That I’ve created by using the Whimsical Wildflowers stamp set by Gina K Designs. I really love floral stamp sets that have great quotes or beautiful sentiments, and this is one is a good example besides, being one of my favorites. So let me start by giving you the list of products that I have used to create these cards.
For both examples, I started by scoring an A2 size top folding and a side folding white card bases that I set aside while I was working on the card panels. For the first example I created an impression by embossing a white cardstock piece with one of the Sizzix Textured Impressions embossing folders. Once the white piece was embossed I cut it down to a smaller card panel by using an A2 size Stitched Rectangle Die.
For this card I masked the flower. First I stamped the flower with black ink, then I covered the flower and I stamped the leaves on each side of it with black ink. Once the black ink was dried out, I started by water coloring using the colors #33, #42 and #43 for the flower, then #51, #53 and #54 for the leaves. (All the colors were included in the watercolor pallet listed above.) After layering the colors, I white heat embossed in a piece of black cardstock two of the sentiments from the stamp set. (One for one of the card and one for the second card) as I was working on both cards at the same time. Don’t you love to multitask? or create more than one card at the same time?
Well for the first card layout, I started by adhering the backed of the card panel with double sided tape to the top folding card base, then a fussy cut the floral arrangement that I had previously water colored, and I adhered it with liquid glue to one side of the panel. Then I adhered the quote that I also had previously white heat embossed on the bottom part of the card panel, as you can see in the picture above. To finish it up, I adhered a few round clear drops and some crystal embellishments here in there adding a little bit of sparkle to it.
For the second example, I gold heat embossed the wildflowers on a watercolor card panel. For this I placed the flowers in two of its corners, as you can see in the picture above. I also left a good amount of white space in the middle as I was thinking on using the largest sentiment from the stamp set. For the water coloring I used the same watercolor pallet. Here are the colors that I used: #40, #42, #43 for the flowers and #50, #51 for the leaves. Once the water coloring was dried out I cut down the card panel by using the same stitched rectangle die, then I decided to add a few gold splatters by using the #903 yellow gold color from the Starry watercolor pallet.
For the layering, I adhered the backed of the card panel with double sided tape to the side folding card base. Then I adhered a big piece of gold string that I wrapped around a few times right in the middle of the card panel. Next I adhered the sentiment that I had previously white heat embossed in a piece of black cardstock on top it. And to finish it up I adhered a few yellow sequins here in there, and yellow jewels on the middle of the flowers.
