Hello! Welcome to my blog! I have another floral card for you today. I love creating cards with flowers, and for this card I used a creative stamp set from Studio Katia called Floral Trimmings. This set comes in two panels or two long narrow stamps that you can stamp together, as I did here, or separate to trim the edge of your card.
The stamps fit together beautifully; however, if you want the gap between them to be unnoticeable, you have to stamp them one at a time. It creates a coloring page that you can paint in using whatever medium you’d like. I colored this card with Copic markers.
This took over an hour to color in, and I didn’t color it all at once. I’m never able to sit at my craft table very long before one of my kids needs help with something. Lol! I didn’t mull over my color selection; I mostly just grabbed colors out of my container and hoped for the best. However, you can’t go too wrong with florals.
I had a hard time deciding what to do with my card panel once I finished my coloring. I went through my box of scrap paper to see what colors of card stock I wanted to use with it. I finally decided on a piece of grey card stock for my sentiment and card base. I didn’t want my card base or sentiment banner to compete will all the color on my card.
I cut out the panel with a faux-stitched frame die, popped up the frame with foam tape, and then adhered my colored panel flat onto the card base with some tape runner.
A helpful little trick to adhere your frame evenly onto your card base, is to only half peel off the release paper, position it on your card base, and then pull off the release paper. It’ll make more sense when you watch my video. I learned that great tip from Therese from Lost In Paper. Thanks, Therese!
I also glued on some rainbow confetti! Just couldn’t help myself–this mix from Studio Katia is gorgeous. I do like the confetti better than the sequins–no holes.
Here is the video I filmed for this card! You can watch it here or on my YouTube Channel in HD.
Have a wonderful weekend!!
