Today I am posting another card made with the Heartfelt Creations "Flora Grande" stamp set. I used a Heartfelt Creations vase to create a bouquet. All the Heartfelt Creation products used are: HCPC 3375 Flora Grande 1 PreCut Set; HCPC 3376 Distressed Leaves PreCut Set; 306F Ivy Background; 551E Oval Vase
This is a 5.5” square card. The base is red card stock. The Ivy Background was stamped with green ink and the leaves were colored with the Copic YG67 marker. I used the Ivy background to create fullness in the bouquet. This piece was embossed with the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss embossing folder. Two Sizzix corners were added on the top. A Martha Stewart “Deco Shells” border was attached to the bottom. The vase was stamped on glossy cardstock with Brilliance “Platinum Planet” Pigment Ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder to give it some sparkle. It was cut out with scissors. Twelve flowers were stamped on red card stock with ColorBox “Warm Red” Chalk Ink and clear embossed. The flowers were cut out with scissors because I do not have the Blossoms 3 Nestabilities yet. There are matching Nestability dies for both the Flora Grande and the leaves. I cut between each of the petals then shaped them. Two flowers were layered together with liquid glue. A punched stamen was added to the center of each flower, then a few black beads glued in the center of each stamen. The small Distressed Leaves were stamped with green ink and embossed with clear embossing powder and cut out with scissors. The vase was attached with thin dimensional tape and the flowers and leaves arranged above it over the ivy background.
All the products used on this card can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
