Today, I will show you how you too can make this gorgeous card!!
I started by cutting a piece of cream colored cardstock to 4.25"x 5.5".
Then, placed it under the Cobblestone Art Screen.
Using a pouncing motion, I lightly applied the ink onto my cardstock. I stenciled the entire A2 (5.5"x 4.25") sized card front. The pouncing motion helps avoid harsh lines.
I cut a piece of patterned paper to 3.25" x 4.5". I also cut corrugated paper 3.5"x 4.75" to mat my patterned paper.
Then distressed and inked the edges using Peony and Eggplant Pigment inks.
Once dried, I ran both pieces through the Xyron Creative Station and set them aside.
Meanwhile, I took a wooden ornament and spritzed it down with Pinkolicious Spritzer spray. This color is usually a vibrant pink. But because I didn't prime my surface and left it it's natural wood color, it turn the pink into a deep magenta, almost maroon. GORGEOUS!!
I gave it a few spritzes and zapped it with my heat tool to speed up drying time.
With all my pieces prepped, I assembled my card.
I made an A2 card by first cutting a piece of cardstock to 4.25"x 11". Then I folded it in half so to measure a 4.25"x 5.5" card. Then attached my matted card front (aka, patterned paper and corrugated mat).
Then with some liquid adhesive I attached and centered my wooden frame.
With more adhesive I attached the beaded stem.
Then attached the crinkled ribbon bow.
Then attached my flowers and metal embellishment and set aside to dry.
And here is my finished card...
I have fallen in love with this card. The deep pinks and purple are so charming together... especially paired wit the mossy greens!!
I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I did!!
Until next time...
