Now, for today’s card from the soon-to-be released Pansy Patch Bundle. Who doesn’t love pansies? And, today’s card is using four of the new 2021-2023 In Colors: Evening Evergreen, Pale Papaya, Polished Pink, and Soft Succulent.
We can start with the easy part of cutting the Soft Succulent card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. I layered this with Basic White Cardstock, cut with the largest Ornate Layers Die. Then, I stamped “thank you,” from the Pansy Patch Stamp Set, in Evening Evergreen, and used an Ornate Frames Die for cutting.
It took some time to figure out the parts of the pansy, but don’t let the number of pieces scare you. I’ll explain how I used 11 of them for this arrangement.
First, I cut three petals (one large, two smaller) from Basic White Cardstock, and brushed Polished Pink Ink on the edges with Pale Papaya Ink toward the center. Embossing is included in the die-cut, which gives it a great look. Don’t you think?
After gluing the three petals together, I cut the two center pieces, coloring them in Pale Papaya and Polished Pink.
Second, I added the three leaves; two small, and one larger. The solid, embossed leaves, were cut from the same color as the card base, Soft Succulent. Then, I cut the “open” leaves from Basic White Cardstock, and colored them with Evening Evergreen.
After gluing the leaves together, I tucked them under the pansy that was attached with Dimensionals.
Last, I gave the pansy a blossom, using three dies. I cut the blossom from Basic White Cardstock, coloring one part with Polished Pink, and one part with Pale Papaya. After cutting the stem from Soft Succulent, I glued the three together, and glued it beneath the pansy.
See, that wasn’t hard, was it? I already have another pansy card ready for tomorrow.
