The card I have for you today is one that I had a blast making. It is a fun Pop Up card with way more than my normal of stamping. The star of the show is the wonderful Translucent Florals Bundle.
The Translucent Florals Bundle is one of the stamp designs that I love the most. All of the images have a bold outline but a soft filling to them. It looks like a Two Step Stamping but with one stamp instead of two different ones that are layered. There is no worrying about lining the two up properly. For this card I used a variety of the sizes of flowers as well as the leaves in the set. And the matching Dies of course are wonderful as always!
The different papers are always important to me as I love the DSP and card stock from Stampin’ Up!. This time I used Berry Burst regular card stock along with Basic White to stamp on. I also added the Basic Vellum paper to stamp on. The most important thing to note when stamping on vellum is there is a chance of smearing. So stamp carefully, no sliding around, and then give it sufficient time to dry. Drying time may seem to take forever, but is well worth the wait. And you can speed it up a little with a heat tool.
The top background layer is a third paper used. It is from the fabulous Masterfully Made Designer Series Paper. This sheet includes the Berry Burst but in a lighter version. The detail in this paper is wonderful when you look closely. It is like the page is from a book, colored and stamped on over top of the writing. I love it!
I mentioned that this card is a Pop Up. It is a layout I cased from Lisa Cursio. It really is pretty simple and a lot of fun to make. Here is an open view.
I have made pop up cards before, just not in a while. This one was fun in that it allowed me to use a lot of flowers and greenery. Normally I would not have this much White space to cover. As with the flowers on the front of the card, some are stamped on Vellum and others on White. The larger of the leaves was an opportunity to have it stick up further when the card is open. And the little strip of DSP was a trim off of the front layer, just the opposite side. I thought it was a perfect spot for yet another flower.
The sentiment is a mixture of additional products. The sentiment came from the Pansy Patch stamp set. And for the fun outline, the die is from the Cheerful Daisies Dies. That little bit of detail adds a lot to the card. For the finishing touch I scattered some of the White dots from Classic Matte Dots.
