Happiness is a handmade card



Ombre floral extravaganza with My Favorite Things

Hi everyone, I'm over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with a card that's filled with flowers! Yes, this was a labour of love to make but I think the finished effect is worth it.

The card is made from a panel inked into pink and peach ombre from which I then die cut a frame using the largest Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frames. I also die cut another 5 frames from plain white card.

I then die cut the word "hugs" from the middle of the panel using My Favorite Things Big Hugs. I also die cut another 5 "hugs" from plain white card.

The frames, panel and "hugs" were all layered up onto a card base.

The time consuming bit comes next... I inked several scrap panels of card into the same pink and peach ombre and let them dry. I then die cut multiple copies of two of the My Favorite Things Stitched Flowers, making sure I had enough in just pink and just peach to fill the wider top and bottom strips of the card.

Each flower was then shaped to lift the petals with a ball tool on a foam mat.

I then arranged them loose on the card to check the placement and colour gradation was correct, before gluing them each down using tweezers and wet glue.

I love that the flowers on top match the ombre shading of the base layer!

Finally, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from My Favorite Things Snuggle Bunnies onto black card, trimmed it to size and popped it over the bottom of the "hugs" letters. You could use any sentiment you like, though.

That's it for today folks - have a great week and I'll see you again next Wednesday :)
