A Way With Words

Where Flowers Bloom

August 11, 2018

Alert: Husband brag coming.  🙂

My husband knows I love flowers and he’s very good about buying me orchids – they last a really long time and it lets me have flowers blooming year round… which means there’s hope in our house all the time.  That is a good thing because we need it!  LOL!

Read on to find out how I made this card!

Step 1 –  Create a green card base for a standard A2 4.25″ x 5.5″ card.

Step 2 – Nest two rectangle dies from the Fitted Rectangles die set and cut at the same time to make a white frame.

Step 3 – Die cut Leaf Pocket Die out of light green cardstock.  Trim to fit the frame and sponge darker shades of green for an ombre effect.

Step 4 – Die cut the flowers from the Flowers 2 die set out of light purple cardstock. Sponge and blend the edges of the petals with darker purple (Seedless Preserves Distress Ink).

Step 5 – After stamping the sentiment in black on white cardstock, trim a rectangle sized as shown, making sure it does not cover too much of the background.

Step 6 – Arrange the die cut flowers to frame the sentiment. Add several die cut leaves, tucking the stems behind the flowers as shown.

Step 7 – For the final touch, glue a round cluster of black Prills to the center of the flowers. 

Thanks for looking!  May you always have flowers blooming near you!  – Diana
