NEW PRODUCT ~ Field of Flowers in a Simple Card
One of the first stamp set bundles I was drawn too, the first time I looked at our brand new annual catalog, was the Field of Flowers stamp set with the Confetti Flower Punch. They will be offered as a bundle, like I mentioned, but because they have not been released yet, I can only show you their pictures side by side.
I consider this card a simple card because although there are a bunch of elements to create it the card comes together quickly.
Creating a Background/Focal Point
The first thing I did to create my background was stamp the field of flowers at the bottom of a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 5″ x 3.75″. I stamped in garden green and then I used my sponge dauber and added a bit of mossy meadow to a few of the greenery. Not all fields are the same green and I wanted to showcase that subtly.
I also took my garden green sponge and gave some greenery around the field too. I took a a pool party sponge and gave my card some sky at the same time. Very subtly so I could still stamp my sentiments.
I then punched out my poppies in poppy parade and daffodil delight and carefully attached them to my greenery using liquid glue and glue dots and a pair of craft tweezers.
Finally, I stamped my sentiment and two dragonflies (they all come in the stamp set).
My Card Layout
My card base is Pool Party, cut in the hamburger fold, measuring 5.5″ x 8.5″ and scored down the middle at 4.25″. I attached a piece of Whisper White to the inside, measuring 5″ x 3.75″ and left it blank for writing.
To attach the focal point, I matted it with a piece of garden green measuring just 1/8″ bigger on all sides. I then popped it up onto dimensionals.
The very last thing I did, was attach a piece of Mossy Meadow with the additional sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a terrific weekend.
