Hello Altenew, friends! Today, I want to share one of my go-to quick and easy floral card recipes (for those cases when you need one).
You will need a gorgeous floral image (in the case of Altenew, literally any floral stamp will work as they are all awesome) and a couple of leaves. The larger the florals – the quicker you can make the card. If you want to use a smaller one – you may need several of them, clustered together.
Quick and Easy Floral Card
For my card, I used the Golden Days Stamp and Die Bundle, which I stamped using the Autumn Blaze, Orange Cream, Firebrick Dye Inks for the flower, and Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, and Evergreen for the leaves.
Next, you need some interesting touch added to the background. I went with the debossed texture, added by using the Dotted Tile Debossing Cover Die with a Navy Cardstock panel. You can also use a 3D embossing folder, or do stenciling, background stamping, or ink blending. But for quick cards, I prefer using debossing dies. They take the least time to use and the effect they add to the background is quite impressive.
The last element of this quick and easy floral card recipe would be a sentiment element. It can be a simple sentiment strip, or something a bit more elevated like a die-cut word, for example.
Using dimensional adhesive to pop up the card elements is an easy and quick way to add more interest to the design. I used it a lot in general, and in my quick cards in particular.
I opted for a bold color scheme when I was making the card. But of course, the same recipe will work with any color scheme, depending on the occasion.
Have a wonderful day!
