For today’s card, I’m letting the Fine Art Floral Designer Paper take center stage.
The Fine Art Floral Designer Paper is very unique, yet easy to create a card using it as the focal point. Isn’t the photography of this hand-painted paper amazing?
I cut two rectangles, the floral and its blue (Pool Party), reverse side, with a 4″ X 2 1/2″ Stitched Rectangles Die. Then, I backed both with cardstock for thickness.
Beneath the two rectangles is a layer of Smoky Slate Cardstock, cut with the largest Stitched Rectangles Die, and embossed with the Old World Paper Embossing Folder.
The three layers are glued to a Smoky Slate card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.
Prior to gluing the layers to the card base, I tied the floral layer with Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. Now I’m laughing, seeing how it matches the embossed background.
The last step was adding the sentiment, Thinking of you,” from the Art Gallery Stamp Set. I stamped it in Basic Gray Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, cut with a Floral Gallery Die, and attached it with Mini Dimensionals. I love the perforated edge of this label!
My layout is from Fab Friday.
