Showcasing Fine Art Floral

Where did the time go?  Wednesday sped by and I’m late on my weekly Wednesday post!  Hey, better late than never.  No worries though, today I am sharing not one but three cards showcasing Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper.  So, it’s worth the wait (LOL).

The paper is gorgeous and provides a beautiful background for cards.  With it’s beauty, you can make gorgeous cards easily.  Since I am in need of Thank You cards, I am using the same sentiment from the Happy Thoughts Stamp Set on all three of the cards. For all the cards, the same basic cardstock colors are used.  But on two of the cards, I have “stepped up” the designs using the Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate on one and Gilded Leafing Embellishment on another.  

Fine Art Floral

  • The sentiment for all 3 of the cards is stamped onto Basic White cardstock and cut using a die from the Hippo & Friends Dies.  Gold Glimmer Enamel Dots are added for extra embellishment.
  • The base for card one is So Saffron cardstock with a layer of Terracotta Tile cardstock.  For cards two and three, Terracotta Tile cardstock creates the base and a second layer of So Saffron cardstock is added.  
  • Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper (3-3/4″ x 5″) creates the top layer on each card.
  • For card one, the designer series paper is adhered to the Terracotta Tile cardstock layer before the cardstock layer is added to the card base.  Wrap a piece of Terracotta Tile Ribbon (from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack) around the layer then adhere to the card base.
  • On card two, the Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate is layered atop the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper.  Since the specialty acetate matches the designer series paper, it adds beautiful gold outlining to the print.
  • And lastly, to step up card three,  the coordinating Art Gallery Stamp Set is used to stamp 3 small flowers and Gilded Leaf Embellishment highlights the center of each. Two of the flowers are stamped using Terracotta Tile (stamp off onto a scrap of paper before stamping onto Basic White piece) and one flower stamped using So Saffron.  After stamping the main piece with the inks, the inner piece is stamped with Versamark, Heat & Stick Powder is applied then activated with the Heat Tool.  Once activated, the Gilded Leaf Embellishment is added and rubbed on each flower.  Easy-peasy! 

If you’re looking for lots of fun – definitely try the Gilded Leaf Embellishment!
