Cardmaking Paper Flowers

Live in the Moment

August 25, 2020

Karen here today sharing a card that was very fun to make as I got to get all inky to make it. The sentiment “Live in the Moment” seems to be excellent advice these days!

To create the background for this card, I used 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. I smeared some Distress Oxide in Spun Sugar on my craft mat and added some water and smooshed my paper into it. Then I did the same with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide. I finished it up with some splatters of Picked Raspberry. I cut this piece with a Stitched Rectangle die.

Then I colored up another piece of Soft Finish Cardstock with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide, add Double Sided Adhesive (101mm) and die cut the Symbol Background Die and stuck that to the card front.

Next, I die cut the flowers from the Cherry Blossom Branch with another piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock colored with Worn Lipstick. For these, I also dabbed them straight onto a Picked Raspberry Distress Ink as shown below then shaped the flowers a little.

For the leaves, I used Lucky Clover Distress Oxide. Then I dabbed them with Embossing Dabber and added some Weathered Wood Embossing Glaze. I also shaped the leaves just by pinching them together.

The branch is colored with Vintage Photo Distress ink. For the flower centers, I used Craft Drops in White. The sentiment is from the Zen Sentiments set and is die cut with a Diagonal Stitched Fishtails die.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen
