The Greetery TGIF: Bold Floral Details

Happy Friday friends! I have been holding onto a card idea for a very long time and finally found the time to create and share with you today.

Back when the AlphaBuds Bold Floral Details Stamp Set was released earlier this year, I had stamped a lot of these small flowers with the intention to build my own pattern background. I used the Alpha Buds Bold Floral Details Die to die cut several of them and start stamping in the layers in bulk with my stamping tool. I varied the floral colors between coral, blue, and yellow.

I took a piece of A2 sized white card stock and die cut it with the largest of the Shapely Hearts Die to create a window where my focal point will be. I started adhering all the little floral pieces like I was completing a puzzle. It was so fun building this together! Once I was done, I trimmed off anything thing that extended past the edge and used the Shapely Heart Die in the same spot to to trim inside the heart.

Behind the window is some warm coral ink blending with a touch of splatter. For the sentiment, I used the Opposites Attract Stamp Set and Die in the same blue as my flowers. I absolutely love the bold text of this stamp set, that stands out so well in front of a busy background. I adhered the windowed panel and sentiment over my ink blended piece with foam tape for some simple dimension and finished off my card with a few iridescent sequins. Hope you enjoy today’s inspiration!
