Hi there and happy happy Friday! I hope your week went well!
Today I’m sharing yet another wedding card, my third this week! This one uses the Flower Cluster die and the Congratulations stamp set, both from Simon Says Stamp.
I started by using foam blending tools to blend Abandoned Coral and Tattered Rose Distress Oxide inks onto an A2-sized piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I created a splatter effect by sprinkling water drops onto the panel and let them sit for about ten seconds before I blotted them away with a paper towel.
While the panel was drying, I die cut the flowers from white 110# Recollections cardstock. This is my go-to cardstock for card bases, layers for stacked die cuts, and intricate die cuts that I don’t intend to ink. I like its weight, and especially like it’s more affordable price, compared to 110# Neenah Solar White.
Back to the panel, I ran an anti-static powder bag over the background and then heat embossed the sentiment using VersaMark ink and Ranger Super Fine Gold embossing powder.
I adhered the flower die cuts and then felt that the card needed something more. So, I ripped up the die cuts and added the confetti-like embossing at the opposite corners. I ended up having to cut new flowers which I carefully adhered in the exact same places as the originals to hide there the original glue had pulled up part of the background. Very detailed card surgery here!
Finally, I adhered the panel to an A2-sized card base.
Thanks so much for coming by!
