We’re nearing the end of February, so that means there are probably more than a few of us who are dreaming of the warmer temperatures and bright blossoms that are just over the horizon now. I’m usually one to jump into things headfirst, so I figured it was the perfect time for tropical flowers and neon colors.
Start by trimming pieces of Classic Crest Duplex Epic Black Cardstock and Rose Gold Foil Cardstock to 7″ x 10″, 4.75″ x 6.75″, and 4.875″ x 6.875″ respectively. Score the large black panel down the center to form a side-folding A7 card base. (Side note – how awesome is this cardstock for easy score-and-embellish card bases…jet black on the outside, smooth white on the inside, and super heavyweight too!)
Using two nested circle dies, cut a window out of the smaller black panel and a thin frame out of a scrap of Rose Gold Foil Cardstock. Die cut the black circle again using the smaller circle die, so that the gold frame and black circle will nest back into the card front panel again.
For a little texture, stamp wood panel patterns all over the die-cut black panel using Versamark Ink, add clear embossing powder, and melt with your heat tool.
Stamp layered flower and leaf images onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock in brightly colored ink and die cut or fussycut the images out.
Stamp one part of the sentiment onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock using a matching bright ink and die cut it out. Then stamp the second half of the sentiment onto the black die cut circle in Versamark Ink, add white detail embossing powder, and melt with your heat tool.
Assemble the card by layering the rose gold panel on top of the black card base, followed by the embossed black panel, rose gold frame, and black sentiment circle. Adhere everything down with tape runner.
Arrange the bright flowers around about two-thirds of the circle frame and adhere to the card base with foam squares. Here I used as many as three layers of foam squares to get tons of dimension in my floral arrangement.
