Beautiful Floral Bouquet Card with I Am Roses

Hey, Crafty Friends!! 
I'm back with another gorgeous card for I Am Roses today!

We often take for granted just how just simply being here is a gift. Especially now, during these crazy and unsure times, we must remember that each new day is not promised, and cherish each moment. Small gestures, like video chatting, telephone calls, or even sending a handmade card, can make people feel connected. 

So, I created a card that reminds me of how lucky I am. I have family, friends, my health, a roof over my head, food on the table, and clothes on my back... I may not have all the things I want but I have all the things I NEED... I am Beyond Blessed.

I can't say this enough... I LOVE LOVE LOVE my tall cards!! And it's been a little while since I last made one soooo... why not?!

I made a slimline (#10 card) by folding a 9 1/4" x 7 1/2" piece of white 110 lb cardstock in half vertically to make a 9 1/4"x 3 3/4" card base.

I used my Xyron Mega Runner to attach a 9" x 3 1/2" piece of patterned glitter cardstock to the front.

I ran a piece of Yellow Shimmer cardstock through my  Xyron Creative Station and die cut a Doily using my Sizzix Big Shot and Magnetic Platform

Then I peeled the protective film backer and attached the die cut doily to the front of my card.

I cut several leaves with my Foliage and Leaves 1 Dies from green cardstock and arranged them onto my doily.

Then I arranged my bouquet of flowers...

 I started with  I Am RosesYellow Gardenias. I used 2. These are quite big.

Then tucked a couple of Achillea Cottage Flowers in between the gardenias and nestled 2 White Lillies alongside them.

Next, I added 2- Aqua 2 Layers Full Bloom Flowers, one atop and one below.

Then. I finished it off with more Achillea Cottage Flowers.

I attached all my flowers to my card front using a strong clear drying liquid glue.

For the finishing touch,  I used words from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Big Chat stack. I like that these are individual pre-cut and self-adhesive words so I can build and create my own sentiments.

And here is my finished card...

I absolutely love how this card turned out. And unlike real flowers, these won't wilt or die and will always stay beautiful. 

I hope you enjoyed today's card! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Until next time...
