Summer Botanicals

Inspiration

Here's another creation using the new Heartfelt Creations release, the Botanical Garden Collection. This one is part of yesterday's feature on the blog at Heartfelt Creations. Remember, too, that HC is giving away one whole collection of the Botanical Garden Collection - just leave a comment on my post yesterday, or the Heartfelt Creations blog by July 19. The winner will be announced next Wednesday, July 20, on the blog.
The layout for this card is based on the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge #335.

Instructions

IMAGE

Stamp the floral image in black ink on a white panel measuring 2" x 5". Stamp it again on additional white paper, and trim out the 3 largest blooms. Color with COPIC markers: Petals (R81, R83), Leaves (G21, G24). Mount the white panel onto a brown panel measuring 2 1/8" x 5 1/8".

BACKGROUND MAT

Cut a piece of green textured cardstock measuring 4 7/8" x 6 7/8", and stamp the smallest single flower stamp from the Botanical Floral set, and a leaf from the Leaf Medley set randomly over the bottom 3/4 of the panel using green ink.

ASSEMBLY

In the center of the green panel, mount a brown panel measuring 3 1/2" x 5 3/4". Top that brown panel with the pink "sponged" paper, measuring 3 3/8" x 5 5/8". Cut a 3" square from the light yellow paper, and cut it in half diagonally. Mount one triangle of yellow in the lower right corner of the brown panel. Cut a 3 3/8" square from the flower print paper, cut it diagonally, and mount a triangle in the lower left corner of the brown panel. Wrap a ribbon around the green cardstock and tie a knot on the right side just over the yellow triangle. Cut your base card from the pink cardstock, measuring 7" x 10", score it at 5", and fold on the score. Mount the green "stack" to the front of your card. Add the brown matted image in the center of the card front over the ribbon. Distress the individual flower cut-outs using a stylus from the Paper Blossom toolkit, and mount them onto the matching flowers using Zip-Dry. Finish the card by adding an adhesive pearl in the center of all 5 flowers.
