Hello, crafty friends!
I am back today to share a bright and fun floral card featuring dies from Crafty Meraki. The Meraki Floral Para-Dies cut several different beautiful florals and foliage which can be used for both A2 and Slimline-sized Cards all year long. I simply love the versatility of these dies!
To create my card, I first die cut Watercolor Cardstock using the Outer Rectangle Die from the Essentials: Stitched Rectangles Die Set. Then, I wet my watercolor panel with water and used Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks with a Water Brush in a dabbing motion, allowing the colors to mix slightly. I let the panel dry and then added some black paint splatters for interest.
Next, I die cut the Spade Meraki Floral Para-Dies, April Meraki Floral Para-Dies, and Chloe Meraki Floral Para-Dies twice out of Snowdrift Cardstock and White Foam using my Spellbinders Platinum 6" Machine. I coloured the die cut pieces using a variety of Copic Markers in different colour families before adhering down the foam die-cut pieces behind for dimension. I love how these flowers look combined together. They're so delicate and pretty!
Next, I stamped a greeting and the coordinating banner from the Blooming Birthday Stamp Set on a strip of Neenah Solar White Cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black ink and then fussy cut the image using a pair of scissors. Once that was done, I die cut the Outer Frame Die from the Pretty Frames 2 Die twice out of Snowdrift Cardstock and White Foam and adhered it down to my panel using Liquid Glue. Then, to finish, 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.
