Crafting a Dimensional Card with Craft-A-Flower: Cape Marguerite Die Set and Hosta 3D Embossing Folder

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hi friends!

Svitlana is here. I'm sharing today a dimensional floral card featuring the floral beauty of the Craft-A-Flower: Cape Marguerite Die Set, complemented by a textured background achieved using a Hosta 3D Embossing Folder.

I started off by creating the layered die-cut flowers using the Craft-A-Flower: Cape Marguerite Die SetNew Purple, and Green Meadows Gradient Cardstock Sets.

After die-cutting all the layers, I assembled the flowers by stacking and adhering the corresponding layers.

Additionally, I added some shading to the floral elements using Woodless Pencils. To be honest, I made this decision after already assembling the flowers just because I wanted to add more interest to them. And, of course, I didn't want to disassemble them or start over to add coloring. Opting for Woodless Pencils as a coloring medium was the best choice in this case.

I used a relatively small Artists' Watercolor Brush #1 to color. I had it slightly wet, picked up pigment from a pencil and added it to flower petals and leaves.

The Lavender Fields and Ultramarine pencils were used to color the flowers, and Shadow Creek pencil was used to color the leaves.

The gradient cardstock itself is not meant for coloring and wetting; it could flatten the embossing of the die-cut elements which dies of the Craft-A-Flower: Cape Marguerite Die Set created. So using as less water as possible was the key. I made sure my brush almost dry, just wet enough to pick up pigment from pencils.

After creating the floral elements, I moved on to creating the background. First, I embossed a Solar White Cardstock panel using the Hosta 3D Embossing Folder. Next, I tore its top edge to add some interest to it.

I adhered the die-cut elements onto the panel, forming the floral cluster. I followed by adding tiny purple splatters onto the floral grouping and background. I used a wet brush and Lavender Fields Woodless Pencil to create splatters.

The panel was foam mounted onto a purple card base using black foam tape.

I used the Thank You Builder Stamp Set and Ultraviolet Dye Ink to make the sentiment label. The sentiment was stamped onto a Solar White Cardstock stripe and popped onto the card, finishing it off.
