Flower Patch Card for WWYS Challenge #62

It’s Monday again already?!  Where did the week go?  That must mean I’ve been busy.  Lol!  So it’s time for this week’s WWYS Challenge.  We’re using the beautiful Flower Patch stamp set.  Click on the image below to see all the great inspiration from the design team and to join in the fun!

#62 Flower Patch

I wanted the focus to be on the clear embossed Melon Mambo flower (the “you” in Be you {tiful}), so I chose soft pastels for the other flower images – Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, Pink Pirouette and So Saffron and these were stamped off twice.


Flower_Patch-1

A cardboard template was made so the Brick Wall TIEF only embossed above and around the flowers.  Some Sahara Sand ink was applied to the folder to add definition.


Flower Patch Card-2

This gorgeous flower is the focal point of the card.  It was stamped in Melon Mambo and clear heat embossed.  The smaller image does not have a co-ordinating die as it is meant to be stamped on the larger one, so I chose to fussy cut both so I could layer them.  An Iced Rhinestone Embellishment finished it off.  (Notes:  the Iced Rhinestone Embellishments are on the retiring list.  You can see all the retiring products by clicking on the Farewell image at the bottom of this post.  The Flower Patch Stamp Set and the co-ordinating die set – Flower Fair Framelits Dies – can be purchased as a bundle, saving you 15%, but ONLY until the new catalogue is released; after that the bundle offer will not be offered and you will have to purchase them separately).


Flower Patch Card-3

Venetian Crochet Trim was used to define the areas of the card.  The sentiment was also stamped in Melon Mambo and clear embossed.

Dream_Big-3

This is one of those cards you actually have to hold in your hands to appreciate.  I couldn’t seem to capture the beautiful lustre and sheen on camera.  The flowers are a bright silver, and the background is a dark shimmery silver.  It was kind of a happy mistake as well, because I wasn’t expecting the foil DSP to show through the black marker as it is kind of matte, but it did and I think the results are even better!

Here’s a visual of how I did it:

This technique would work equally as well on cardstock with stamped images.  I’m definitely going to try this again – it was so much fun to make, and easy too!
