Hi, Marla here. I am so happy to be back with another ECD Blog post. Today, I am sharing this beautiful floral card. Once created, this card can easily sit in your card stash ready to use for several celebratory occasions. Let’s get crafty, shall we?
Step 1 Stamp out your images from the “Respect” stamp set using clear embossing ink onto watercolor paper and add white embossing powder. Melt the powder using your heat tool.
Step 2 Add watercolor to your embossed images and set aside to dry. I used a combination of blue, teal and green watercolors for my card.
Step 3 Use the coordinating dies to cut out your images adding foam tape to the back of the largest floral cluster.
Step 4 Cut a piece of white cardstock to 4.25″ x 5.50″. Position your cardstock in a vertical orientation. Using a grid mat and both ECD 0.25″ and 0.4″ “Clear Double-Sided Adhesive Tape” create a pattern horizontally, leaving white space between each piece of tape.
Step 5 Remove the adhesive backing one at a time and alternate the foil colors to coordinate with your watercolored images. Again, I used shades of blue, teal and green foil cut into strips for easy alignment.
Step 6 Trim 1/8″ off each side of your foiled panel for a finished layer that measures 4″ x 5.25″.
Step 7 Using the “Best Wishes” sentiment from the “For You” stamp set, mask off the “wishes” with tape and ink and the word “Best”, remove the tape and stamp. Repeat the process and stamp the word “wishes.” Trim the sentiments to fit on your card front.
Step 8 Assemble your card. Center and adhere your foiled card panel to a 4.25″ x 5.50″ top folding card base. Place the large floral with foam tape at an angle from the bottom left corner angling towards the top right. Tuck the smaller floral underneath the larger floral vertically. Add your sentiments and a few gems for more sparkle and shine and you are finished.
Thank you for taking time to view my post. I hope to see you back again soon. Until next time… Marla
