- I love this time of year when the flowers sprout and begin to grow and bloom. Flowers have so many vivid shades of color. I wanted to make a card that brings out some of those colors.
- My first decision was the stamps to use and then the color of ink and embossing powder.
- I stamped the first flower with pink ink and covered with red embossing powder and embossed. Next I stamped the flower with blue ink, covered with blue embossing powder and embossed. I stamped the yellow flower with distress ink that dries to fast to emboss, but it was the shade of yellow that I wanted and I planned to use glitter glue on the finished card. I then cut out each of the flowers.
- On light yellow paper I stamped the text. I centered the die cut over the text and taped in place so it wouldn’t slide. I ran it through my Cuttlebug several times to get a good cut.
- I began by putting a ribbon through the ends of die cut but I didn’t like the look. I changed by cutting the four covers off the blue paper, tacked the blue with pop dots on the die cut and added the gems.
- Lastly I colored each of the flowers with chalk. Be sure to spray each flower with either hair spray or fixative or otherwise the chalk will wear off.
- The final steps were arranging the flowers that were attached with pop dots and the text die cut was added last with pop dots. The last thing I did was add dots of glitter glue on the yellow flower.
