Frosted Floral was the suite that jumped out at me, when first viewing Stampin’ Up’s 2018 Holiday Catalog. The best word to describe it is, “luscious.”
I began today’s design with a piece of the Frosted Floral “Specialty” Designer Series Paper. It’s “special,” because it’s printed on shimmery paper. This silvery-gray and white print blends beautifully with the Smoky Slate card base.
Can you see the raised leaves? It’s called the “eclipse technique,” and there have been lots of wonderful projects using letters with this technique.
I thought it would be fun to use the “eclipse technique” with the leaf from the Frosted Bouquet die set. I simply placed the die on a 4″ X 5 1/4″ piece of Frosted Floral DSP, and rolled it through the Big Shot.
I repeated this two more times, placing the leaf where I thought it would be good for my bouquet of flowers. Next, I used the leaf die to cut more leaves for layering, so they would have dimension. Then, I glued the 4″ X 5 1/4″ piece on the Smoky Slate card base, and glued the layered leaves into their proper holes, matching the pattern of the DSP.
The First Frost stamp set provided my three flowers, which I stamped in Merry Merlot on Thick Whisper White cardstock. I love how the stamp gives the flowers a watercolor look.
I used a die in the Frosted Bouquet die set to cut two sprigs from Silver Foil. The sprigs are glued under the flowers at the base, but mostly unattached.
The sentiment is from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set, and cut with a die from the Merry Christmas die set. I stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot ink on Smoky Slate cardstock to coordinate with the flowers.
The flowers were naturally lifted by the leaves, and the sentiment was raised on dimensionals.
