Folktales & Stories Project Inspiration

Today, I'll be sharing how you can make a beautiful floral shaped card.

20220211 123810 1I started by stamping the large image from Endless Florescence Stamp Set onto a piece of watercolor cardstock using Embossing Ink and heat set using Rose Gold Embossing Powder. I then colored this gorgeous image using Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set. I went around the outside of the image using dark blue paint so when I cut the image using the coordinating die it would have a dark edge.

I also cut a plain white piece of cardstock using the same die twice. On one of these die-cuts, I scored a line around about 1″ down from the top of the tulip, all across the die-cut. I then added adhesive to the top of the score line and adhered the other white die-cut to it. Then, I adhered the colored die-cut image on top of it. The sentiment is from Sentiment Strips 3 Stamp Set.
