Pansy Petals Pretty Floral Card

This month the Inspire, Create, & Share (I.C.S.) Blog Hop Team, are sharing their ‘It’s A Girl Thing’ creative projects. Wheever you have joined our ‘hop’ from today, a big warm English welcome to you.

When I think of cards for my female friends, unless I have something specific in mind, floral cards are always a great ‘go-to’ for me.

Pansy Petals 12″x12″ Designer Series Papers – NOW reduced !!!

My project today features the Pansy Petals 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper #155807 (now currently reduced in the Last Chance sale) and Pansy Dies #155690, featured on p160 in the retiring Annual Catalogue.

To create my floral card, I cut a Basic Black card base #121688, with additional layers slightly smaller in Basic White #159228 and a further Basic Black slightly smaller still.. The Black layer was die cut using the Stitched Greenery Die #155451, giving a whole layer of subtle stitched leaves.

The sentiment was stamped using Blackberry Bliss Classic Stampin’ Pad #133648 and die cut using Layering Circle Dies #151770. This was attached to the Stitched Greenery layer.

Using Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper #155807 with coordinating Pansy Dies #155680, I cut out a selection of petals and leaves. These were arranged in a ‘C’ shape around the sentiment, with the main image being double layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love how the colours ‘pop’ from the stitched black background.

Top Tip when Die Cutting flowers & leaves

Remember, not to waste the partial images round the outside edge. When layering, these can easily be disguised on lower layers, to give a fuller effect.

Finishing Touches

Every girl needs some ‘bling’ and today is no exception. Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush #141897 was added to some of the blooms, to add sparkle.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects today. Enjoy your hop round the rest of the group today. Next is Dana‘s Blog so click below to see the gorgeous project she is sharing with you.
