Today's card was inspired by many I've seen online.
I made it by painting a wash of Flirty Flamingo ink on a piece of Shimmery White cardstock. I started by wetting down the cardstock with my flat brush Water Painter. I put a drop of ink refill on an acrylic block and added a few drops of water from the Water Painter, then swirled the ink onto the brush and started applying it to the cardstock. I kept the ink fairly heavy at the top, and tapered it off as I went down the page. I did go back over some areas that I thought needed a bit more ink or texture.
I left it to dry completely, then applied the thin Many Layered Blossoms die-cut on top. I'd cut it out of Whisper White with an Adhesive Sheet applied to the back, so it was easy to adhere.
I cut a Whisper White frame the same size as my finished card front, using a Rectangles Stitched Die for the centre. Then I cut down the flower panel to just slightly smaller than the frame. I put Foam Adhesive Strips around the edge of the flower panel and carefully lined up the frame on top. Then I glued the framed panel to a Whisper White Thick card base and added the sentiment from Bloom & Grow.
You can find everything I used to make this card here.
I've been paper-crafting since 2006, and an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 2010. I love sharing my craft with others, either through classes or by creating special cards and gifts that meet their needs. Join me in creating fun!
