I love making cards and even the occasional sympathy card. They should be just as lovely and special as all of our cards. So this one, which is for a dear friend, was my first play with the Irresistible Blooms Bundle.
Stamps and Dies
The fun die in the center of this card is my most favorite from Stampin’ Up! right now. It is quite different from any other and really pops. The die is from the Irresistible Blooms Dies. I used the stamp set also, but it is on the inside of the card.
The front sentiment is one that fit my thoughts for this card perfectly. It is from the Potted Geranium stamp set. That set has some awesome sentiments and I will be sharing other cards with it soon.
Paper and Punches
The beautiful paper that is showing from behind the die cut is from the Hello Irresistible Designer Series Paper. That paper is simply beautiful! The different colors are amazing. And it has like an embossed resist look to it. This sheet showing is like it was sponged with soft pastels onto an embossed image. So very pretty!!!
The sentiment is stamped on the reverse of a paper in the same DSP pack. I love the soft Pastel look and went with all pastel colors actually. The card base is Soft Sea Foam card stock. And the layer is So Saffron. It is rare for me to use So Saffron but it is perfect in this case. Plus both of those colors are in that sponged look.
To finish the front of the card I needed something. Instead of die cutting leaves from the Die set. I used the Bough Punch. With a couple of Soft Sea Foam leaves and Petal Pink flower pieces it was complete.
The card is not finished without embellishments. So I miss -spoke above. By spreading some love with Enamel Dots, I was able to add a soft bling to the card. And since it is soft looking, I went a bit heavy on the bling! Those little round areas of the die cut just seemed to be calling for a little embellishment on each. But I did restrain myself and left a few empty.
