Another springtime card I designed for Heartfelt Creations. This one uses a sentiment from the Floral Cross Collection with stamps from last month's release, the Chateau Gate Collection. I love coloring flowers with COPIC markers, and this design let me play with 2 different kinds of flowers on the same card.
Note: Finished card size: 5" x 7"

BASE CARD and MAT LAYER
Cut a piece of green card stock measuring 7" x 10", score it at 5", and fold. Cut patterned paper to measure 4 1/2" x 6", and mount it at the top center of the card front. Cut/emboss two pink small long rectangles, and one larger yellow long rectangle. Trim one end of both pink rectangles so that the rectangles measure 3" in length. Trim one end of the yellow rectangle so that it measures 4" in length. Mount the yellow rectangle at the top center of the card front. Mount the pink rectangles on each side of the yellow rectangle.
Cut/emboss a small white deckled oval, stamp the sentiment in blue ink, and mount at the top of the yellow rectangle with foam squares.
Cut/emboss three white deckled ovals. Stamp the roses on two of the ovals using black ink. Stamp the posies on the third oval using black ink. Stamp the flowers again on white card stock, and cut them out, trimming closely. Color the images with COPIC markers. I used these colors:
- Leaves: G21
- Roses: RV21, RV23
- Posies: B91, B93
- Vase: RV21, RV23
- Water: B91, B93
Mount the rose ovals on the two pink rectangles, and the posie oval on the yellow rectangle. Use foam squares to mount the trimmed flowers over the matching images on the card.
