Hello, crafty friends!
I am back today to share a soft, pastel floral card featuring stamps and dies from Crafty Meraki. There are so many gorgeous layered florals in the Crafty Meraki store, but I thought the Kelsey Meraki Floral Para-Dies would look great in pinks and yellows. I loved mixing the floral die cuts with artsy blends and splatters for my card today.
For my card, I started out by trimming a piece of Snowdrift Cardstock to 4.025" X 5.0.625". Next, I placed the Diamond Motif Stencil in the centre of the panel and applied Mint Ink lightly all over with a blending brush. I then flicked some black paint on my panel using a paint brush for a fun splatter effect.
Next, I die cut the Kelsey Meraki Floral Para-Dies, April Meraki Floral Para-Dies, and Spade Meraki Floral Para-Dies twice out of Snowdrift Cardstock and White Foam using my Spellbinders Platinum 6" Machine. To colour the pieces, I blended Bubble Gum and Sparkling Rose inks over the three large flowers using sponge daubers. Next, I coloured the pistils using Sunshine Ink and adhered it down to the centre of the flowers. Then, I blended Bubble Gum, Sparkling Rose, Ocean Breeze, and Fresh Pear inks over the florets using sponge daubers before adhering down the foam die-cut pieces behind for dimension.
Next, I stamped the small and large leaves from the Imperial Garden Layering Stamp Set using Olive and Fresh Pear inks and then cut them out with scissors, leaving a small border. Once that was done, I die cut the Small Circle Die from the Diagonal Stitched Circles Die Set twice out of Snowdrift Cardstock and White Foam and adhered it down to my panel using Liquid Glue. I then assembled my floral bouquet and then adhered down the pieces on to my panel using a combination of foam adhesive and Liquid Glue.
Then, to accentuate my design, I die cut the Outer Frame Die from the Pretty Frames 2 Die out of Snowdrift Cardstock and adhered it to my panel using Liquid Glue. To complete my design, I stamped a sentiment from the Angel Wings Layering Stamp Set on a strip of Snowdrift Cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black ink and then die cut the sentiment out using the Fishtail Flag Trio Die Set, before popping it on my panel using foam squares for dimension. Finally, I adhered a few Sparkling Clear Sequins to my card panel and mounted it to an A2-sized top-folding white card base made out of Snowdrift Cardstock.
