Hi crafty friends! Today I have a card which was inspired by the wonderful, unique, funny, and insanely talented Laura Bassen. I watched her create this card and fell for this design. Ok, I love all of her designs, but this just knocked me over. Of course I had to give it a try myself, and I used the Concord & 9th Wildflower set for my project.
As you can see, it’s the flowers that stole my heart: I stamped a whole bunch of them on sturdy card stock with Versamark ink, then heat embossed the images with white embossing powder. Thanks to my Distress Inks, I could easily add color on top since the embossing powder resists the ink. Then came the part where I had to fussy cut all of it out, which took a toll on my hands, but it just looks so PRETTY!
Before I proceeded, I die cut a window with the My Favorite Things Scallop Stitched Circles into a panel of white card stock and stamped the sentiment from Concord & 9th’s Being Classy set through that opening on my card base, then adhered the front panel with foam tape for some dimension. Before adhering the flower, I sprayed them gently with Perfect Pearls to get some beautiful shimmer.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you got inspired!
