Flowers for you

Hello and welcome to day 3 of this week’s Sale-A-Bration countdown! Today’s card is keeping with the “springtime” feeling with two of the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP sheets and some pops of color! With the 2016-2018 In Colors retiring soon, I wanted incorporate at least one color and Flirty Flamingo was it!

The card base is Flirty Flamingo cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”, and the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP is cut at 4” 5 ¼”.

I used Sponge Brayers to color the dotted DSP in Powder Pink, Flirty Flamingo, and Melon Mambo inks. I chose a couple of flowers from the DSP and colored those in Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler, Light and Dark Rich Razzleberry, Light Pumpkin Pie, Light Calypso Coral, and Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ blends. The leaves are from the Rose Garden Thinlits in light green from the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper, which are then adhered behind the flowers. A piece of Vellum Paper is cut out using the largest scalloped framelit from the Layering Circles Framelits, with the flowers then adhered on top. To give the flowers a “dewy look” I added some glitter circle and raindrops from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes.

To put the card together, I adhered the DSP to the card base and then adhered the flowers and vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Happy Wishes stamp set, stamped on Whisper White card stock on Memento ink, then end is punched out using the Banner Triple Punch, and then sponged around the edges in Flirty Flamingo ink with a Stampin’ Sponge.

What do you think? Bright, cheerful, and springtime? This is really a great versatile card that can be used for any occasion by changing the sentiment.
