Good morning – it is Monday again! Hope your week is looking like it’ll be a good one!
I’ve got a pretty – and pretty easy! – card for your today. Well – TWO cards, actually! Both use the pretty Fragrant Flowers stamp set and bundled dies from the Jan – Apr 2023 Mini Catalog and pretty Favored Flowers DSP – a free-with-qualifying-order goody from the Jan – Feb 2023 Sale-A-Bration catalog. Take a look-see:
That first one is rocking Fresh Freesia – and the second one is pretty in Petal Pink and some Calypso Coral!
The layout for these cards is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week – I turned it on its side.
I started by adhering a piece of leafy Vellum Basics Specialty DSP to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal+. I made sure to keep the adhesive where it would be hidden by the decorations on the card front.
On a small piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the Fragrant Flowers sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink. Interesting note: Fragrant Flowers is one of FIVE stamp sets in the new catalog that you can get in either Cling OR Photopolymer!! 😎🎉😎🎉). Just above the sentiment, I stamped the little geometric image from the set in Fresh Freesia (or Petal Pink). Then I used Stampin’ Seal+ to adhere it to its own Basic Black mat and onto the card front.
Using the dies from the Fragrant Flowers set, I cut out a large two-blossom image and a smaller single image from the spectacular Favored Flowers DSP. This paper is…stunning! It was designed to coordinate with the Fragrant Flowers set and is FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying $50+ purchase.
I snipped off the largest leaf from the big floral – and then adhered it to the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the small flower next to it – also with the Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I used the small leaf die and the “bud” die from the Fragrant Flowers die set to cut an Evening Evergreen leaf and either a Fresh Freesia or Petal Pink bud. I slid a leaf and a bud under the die cuts, adhering them with Liquid Glue.
Using a Glue Dot – scrunched up – I adhered a Dragonfly Trinket and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped the small flower image from Fragrant Flowers in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corner of a Basic White panel. I colored the leaves with my Light Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blend – and lightened them a little with the Stampin’ Blend Color Lifter. The flower itself is colored with the Light and Dark Fresh Freesia or Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends.
I used Stampin’ Seal + to adhere the panels to a Basic Black mat and then into the Fresh Freesia (or Petal Pink!) card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Fragrant Flowers image on the front…
…and more Favored Flowers DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Oh my goodness, y’all! So – in the interest of full transparency – when I first saw the Favored Flowers DSP I was a little…”meh”…about it! I mean – okay. Pretty. But…meh! Then I GOT it. And I got the Fragrant Flowers bundle. And I CUT OUT THOSE GORGEOUS images right from the DSP!! Boom – a total convert! I love this paper so much! AND – it’s FREE with that $50 purchase – pickup the Bundle and a pack of pretty Vellum Basics Specialty DSP – and you’ll be able to select this paper! Perfect!
