The card I have to share with you today is similar to the one from yesterday in that it is very floral. That is not something I do many of. In the case of today’s card, it is really all about the Paper! The Fancy Flora Designer Series paper is amazing in both colors and look of texture.
The look of textured paint along with the bright colors of this DSP is like looking at a piece of art! All of the sheets in this Fancy Flora Designer Series paper are like this. They are amazing and beautiful. For this card I wanted to show off as much of the paper as I could. So I opted for a couple of flowers and a simple sentiment. The first choice was what colors to pull from the DSP. I chose Orchid Oasis as the card base with a layer of Calypso Coral as a thin layer. And I love how it looks!
These two blue flowers may not quite look real. The blue was to pull from the paper and I love blue. So my card, my color of flowers. 🙂 These are from the Two Tone Flora Bundle. This stamp set has a few different sizes of flowers that are a two step stamping. And the Dies cut all of them. I used Orchid Oasis and Balmy Blue to create these gorgeous flowers. And the centers were colored using Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends. For the leaves, I stamped with Evening Evergreen and then colored in the open areas with Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends.
The single flower by the sentiment is one of a cluster that I simply cut one away from. I only wanted one for the sentiment. This sentiment is not in the Two Tone Flora set. It is actually from one of the SAB sets. It is the Beautifully Happy stamp set. If you do not have this set, there are many similar sentiments that would work perfectly here. I fussy cut around the words because I did not want a bulky sentiment layer to cover more of the DSP. The single strip of Calypso Coral, along with the little flower, was all I needed to ground the sentiment.
Between the raised flowers and the look of texture on the DSP, this card did not really need a lot of extras. But I could not go without adding a touch of bling. So a few scattering of Basic Pearls was the choice I made. They give a bit more elegance to that gorgeous paper.
