I have 3 cards on the HC blog this week, and today I'm presenting a shaped card. The other two cards will be posted on Thursday and Friday this week. Flowers are my favorite stamping/coloring subject, so I had to dive right in with the tattered blossoms. These images are wonderful for working with a "distress" theme. I used watercolor paper, and Distress Re-Inkers to shade the blossoms.

Instructions

BASE CARD

Cut/emboss 2 Label 18 die cuts from watercolor paper using the largest die. Score across one of the die cuts from point to point at the longest point of the die cut. Fold along the score line, then adhere to the back of the other die cut to form the card.

Mount a strip of ribbon across the middle of the front of the card. To cover up the ribbon ends on the back of the card front, die cut watercolor paper using the next smallest label 18 die and mount over the ribbon ends on the back of the card front.

IMAGE

Cut/emboss the next smallest Label 18 die cut from watercolor paper. Using waterproof black ink, stamp the 3-flower image across the middle of the die cut. Note that the 2 end leaves won't fit - they will be added in another layer.

On the remaining watercolor paper, stamp another 3-flower image, and 2 small individual blossoms, and 1 medium blossom. Use the matching blossom dies, cut out the 3 individual blossoms. Using scissors, "fussy cut" out the second 3-flower image. When you cut this out, trim off the 4 center leaves.

Now watercolor all the images, including the one on the die cut, using distress inks and a water brush.

ASSEMBLY

Using foam squares mount the painted die cut on the center of the card front. Add the trimmed 3-flower image onto the card front using foam squares. Glue the individual blossoms onto the matching flowers on the front of the card. Use the dries clear glue to add Black Gala Glitz in the center of the flowers. Lightly spray the whole card with the Perfect Pearl Mist.

Tie a bow using the same ribbon, and adhere to the base card at the left of the image.

Thanks for stopping by!
