Looking for a floral friendship card to raise someone’s spirits? Nothing beats flowers to brighten a winter’s day. It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!
This week, the talented LeAnne has a really fun theme challenge for us: Use something NEW on your project! Don’t we all have something which is new to us, which we haven’t used, in our stash? For me, it was the new Art Gallery bundle, Dandy laser cut paper, Fine Art designer series paper, and Gilded Leafing. I can’t wait to see what new goodies you are using on your card this week!
Colors of the Day
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
The Art Gallery images are perfect for playing with the new gilded leaf flakes. I used them on the larger blossom in order to add a beautiful golden luster. I simply stamped the overlay image in Versamark, and heat embossed it with Heat and Stick powder until sticky, at which point I added the gold flakes. I burnished them and rubbed off the excess. Since it was such an easy process, I did the same thing with a dragonfly cutout from the Dandy Laser Cut Paper collection.
A “pop” of blue in a sea of pink and gold, the floral stem is accented with an organdy bow. A gold hoop and clear Elegant Faceted Gems provide further embellishment. The sentiment, “It was a perfect day because of you” holds particular meaning for me. Lexi lost her fight to cancer a few days ago (Click Here for the post about Lexi’s passing.) I created this card to be framed. It will sit beside Lexi’s powder pink urn. Every day truly was a perfect day when Lexi was in it!
