Today I have a pretty Thanks card. I love creating flowers with Susan's new Love In A Mist die set. These are one of a very few flowers that are blue in nature. Aren't they pretty!
This is a 6 inch square card. A piece of green gingham design paper was attached to the front.
To create the frame, use the Fitted Circle die set and die cut three circle frames. Tape two dies that fit inside each other down on card stock and die cut. I die cut two white frames and one Whisper Blue frame. The three frames were die cut with Clear Double Sided Adhesive attached to the back of the cardstock. Attach the three frames together placing the blue one on top.
Use the Dotted Scallop Circle die set and die cut a circle one size larger than the circle frame.
For the inside of the frame, I used a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock and applied Distress Oxide inks in yellow, blue and green. A circle was die cut to fit behind the circle frame. The sentiment was white embossed on the top portion of the circle. Attach this circle to the back of the open blue frame.
Use the Love In A Mist die set and die cut enough pieces to create three flowers. Today, I used light blue card stock and sponged blue PanPastels in the center of each petal, blending out toward the tip of the petal. Shape the flowers using Susan's Flower Tool Kit. This was a quick and easy way to shade the petals. On the tips of the stamen, I added olive Nuvo drops.
For the five small white flowers, use the small die in the Love In A Mist. Die cut using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Shape with the Flower Tool Kit and add Prills to the center.
Use the A Way With Words Thanks die set and die cut three sentiments, using 100 pound White Soft Finish Cardstock. Attach the three sentiments together for dimension. I used Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back of the cardstock before die cutting. Attach the sentiment to the lower right side of the card front.
Attach the frame and flowers as shown. To complete the card, add a few pearls.
