A couple of weeks ago I hosted a Mother’s Day themed class and we created a card with the Wonderful Romance bundle. It’s so pretty and the bouquet is perfect for colouring in. The bouquet we made in class was coloured with Petal Pink and Granny Apple Green. I worked on another bouquet in Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaron on the same day because it’s nice to see the different looks you can get just by varying colours. This card is created with that bouquet I coloured in.
I’ve layered this beautiful bouquet on a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. This paper has a variety of wood textures in different shades. Perfect for masculine makes but as you can see it’s great for any card or project.
I started by cutting a panel of Wood Texture paper and a smaller panel of Daffodil Delight paper. I cut into these 3cm to create a cute opening. Then using a bone folder I curled the edges and folded slightly. The Everyday Label punch out, stamped with the Sheet Music stamp has been added under these layers. I liked the pop of colour this added in Poppy Parade. The bouquet has been mounted with a glue dot right over the join where the stem is and then raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals for the rest of it.
Team it with the Duet Banner punch (which is also retiring) for some quick sentiments to add to projects.
For my card today, I wanted a small sentiment as I didn’t want it to be too heavy against the flowers. I stamped the 2 lots of words and then used the Classic Label Punch to punch them out, snipping the excess ends off. This is a quick method of getting a uniform height for your sentiments without having to trim tiny pieces of cardstock on a trimmer.
