Today I have Irresistible Blooms two ways. The same card is made in both Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam.
I recently got together with a couple of my friends/fellow demonstrators for a lunch and card making session. We each designed a card to take with us and provided the supplies so that the others could make them.
These were the cards that I took. We were only supposed to design one, but I couldn’t decide which on I liked better, so I took both!
How I Made the Cards
Both of the cards were made the exact same way. I started by embossing the front of the cards with one of the new Basics 3D embossing folders. After that, I stamped my flowers and colored them with my Stampin’ Blends. I used the Irresistible Blooms dies to crop them, the leaves, and a fancy circle in a 3 3/8″ x 3 3/8″ piece of Naturally Gilded DSP.
Next, I adhered the fancy circle piece to a 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of Vellum. They were then layered onto a 3 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ piece of Hello, Irresistible DSP an they were all attached to the card with Dimensionals.
The sentiment was heat embossed and punched with the Label Me Fancy punch. It was layered with another punched piece of DSP, then adhered with Dimensionals.
The flowers and leaves were then adhered together and attached with more Dimensinoals. And finally, the last step was attaching some coordinating Loose Frosted Dots.
All in all it was a fun time had by all. We had a nice lunch and enjoyed making some beautiful cards. In fact, I’m already looking forward to the next time!
