I’m in love with the Flower Shop stamp set from Stampin Up, which has been around for some time and proves over and over to be very versatile!
Today I made a card for a colleague who is leaving soon. I like to give the card a few days in advance and not exactly on the last day. I think it’s just nice catching them alone, having a chat, give the card and they can enjoy it until they leave.
This card is very fun to make and there is no pressure of getting everything right. My original idea was layering the coloured flowers straight on top of the black and white ones, but I thought it looked kind of cool letting it peak through.
I coloured the flowers with watercolour pencils and a blender pen. My colouring is far from perfect, but it’s all about having fun! I used the Pansy Punch to punch the flowers out very quick. You can also cut them out with scissors.
The sentiment I white heat embossed on black paper to make it stand out and with all those flowers I thought it needed some green and I decided to go with a green cardbase. I used a white gel pen just to add some white to the center of the flowers, it’s not necessary to do. I also covered the flowers in glitter with a wink of stella, unfortunately this doesn’t show on any of the photos 😦
I put the coloured flowers on with dimensionals and I used scissors to cut the overhanging flower bits off with. Later I decided to add some glossy accent to the center of the flowers and it worked very well.
I’m very happy with the turn out of this card and I will be making more of it for other occasions. ❤ In Fact here a couple of similar cards I made. All ready to get a sentiment attached.
Enjoy and have a nice day!
