Floral Hello for Festive Friday

Floral hello cards are so pretty.  By switching out the sentiment,  they can easily be transformed into a card suitable for a wide variety of occasions. It’s time to play at Festive Friday – Home of the Inspo List!

Floral Hello

For this week’s challenge, we are inspired by National Gardening Week. Remember – at Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion. Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. I used  green, die cuts, flowers and gold twine on my card this week. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Since I love collage style cards, the new Artistically Inked Suite of products is perfect for me.  While two gorgeous flowers, inked in new In Colors, take center stage, I added leaves, gold twine, frayed ribbon, gold stems, sequins and pearls to add dimension and texture. And what about the Crumb Cake Paper Lattice! Wow! Had I not already added a ton of pearls to the center of the Polished Pink flower, I would have been adding pearls at every intersection.  However, even I have my pearl limits (wink)!  And talk about gorgeous, the coordinating Expressions in Ink designer series paper is stunning!
