Kraft and Coral
Today's card features one of my larger homemade flowers using some older stamps from Heartfelt Creations.
Here's how I put this card together:
I began by embossing a piece of kraft card stock with the Lattice Embossing Folder from Creative Expressions. I distressed the edges and inked around them with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide (Ranger). I matted this panel on a piece of coral colored card stock, also with distressed edges.
Next, I cut one of my coffee stained doilies in half and glued it to the left side of my card. I added a piece of crocheted lace across the bottom of my panel. The vines were cut using the Romantic Vines dies (Spellbinders), and embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug). I lightly inked the embossing with a bit of Walnut Stain DO to help it stand out.
To create my flower I:
Stamped my Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade, and Wild Honey Distress Oxide pads on my desk and spritzed them with water. I ran a piece of watercolor paper through my inks, heat set, and repeated till I achieved a color I liked.
Next I stamped the Flora Grande 2 flowers (Heartfelt Creations) in Picked Raspberry Distress Ink, and fussy cut each flower. I lightly spritzed the reverse side of each flower and crumpled it into a ball. After sufficient wrinkling, I unrolled them and dried them with my heat gun.
To finish off my flowers I cut along the petal lines and inked the edges in Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. After layering them together, I lightly inked the tips with Picket Fence Distress Stain and added a large pearl to the center.
