I wanted to make a wedding card and thought this was the perfect excuse to use the elegant Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies. I’ve seen lots of examples of wedding cards using these dies along with the matching Floral Boutique DSP in night of navy and whisper white. But as you know, I am always searching for something a little more unique. So I decided to incorporate some watercoloring into this card. Here is the finished result.
I began by watercolouring a piece of shimmery white cardstock using the colours rose red, wisteria wonder, so saffron, pear pizzazz and bermuda bay.
When my background was dry, I ran my piece of watercoloured cardstock through my Big Shot using the die, to achieve two detailed panels as pictured above. I then adhered them to the top and bottom of my shimmery white card base before heat embossing my sentiment from the Floral Phrases stamp set using versamark and silver embossing powder.
To finish, I placed some rhinestones into the centre of some of the die cut flowers, added a bow tied with silver ribbon, and adhered a metallic enamel heart to the right of my sentiment ❤️❤️❤️
I’d been waiting to play with my new Floral Phrases stamp set for what seems like ages – I’m slowly working through all my beautiful sets from the new catalogue, so bear with me!! Everything from this suite is gorgeous, including the intricate Detailed Floral Thinlets Dies which would look stunning on a wedding card! The designer series paper in this range is night of navy and whisper white which is very elegant. But I decided to veer away from these colours for today’s project and head straight for what may well be my all time favourite SU colour – rose red!
Since all the DSP in this range is blue and white, I decided to create my own. I took the long floral patterned image from the set and stamped it repeatedly in memento black ink. I lined the rows up by using my stamp-a-ma-jig to guide me until my whole page was covered. To create my roses, I coloured the back of my rose stamp in rose red and garden green Stampin’ write markers (from the regals colour collection) before stamping them and then fussy cutting my three rose images out. Once I’d created my thank you banner using the triple banner punch, I adhered my roses on dimensionals. I was quite pleased with the finished card and love the vibrancy of the roses against the black and white background. The rose red card base really makes them pop even more. Would love to hear your thoughts on this card so please do leave me a comment and let me know what you think of this new set! 😘 xx
