Best Wishes Fine Art Floral Suite Card
T his card would be perfect for that wedding you have coming up. It was made using several elements from the Fine Art Floral Suite from Stampin Up!
Card Base: Cut 8 ½” X 11” paper in half lengthwise. You now have two pieces 11” X 4-1/4”. Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼” X 5 ½”.
Now add a piece of Pool Party paper cut 4"x 5-1/4". I then stamped the large flower from the Fine Art Floral Suite in Pool Party ink. So we have a tone-on-tone effect for the card front.
Cut a piece of basic white cardstock at 2-7/8"x 4". I then glued a piece of designer series paper that was cut down to 3-7/8"x2-3/4". If you do not have that designer series paper pack look for a piece that coordinates with the pool party color. Then cut a piece of Golden Garden Designer Specialty Paper the same size as the designer series paper 3-7/8"x 2-3/4". I adhered the acetate using Tombow glue behind where the flower will cover it up so you do not see the glue thru the acetate.
Add your gold banner cut from the gold foil sheet paper. 5/8"x4-1/4" then I added a piece of the Fine Art Ribbon at 4-1/2" I adhered the ribbon with tear and tape to the gold strip and then popped the two layers up using dimensional dots also. I put this layer down and then added the flowers so I could put the gold banner under the flowers.
I stamped the flowers using Petal Pink for the smaller image of the flower and then Terra cotta tile for the highlighted flower. The stem was stamped in Old Olive. The larger flower was stamped in Pool Party and then in Coastal Cabana. Then I stamped one entire flower in Old Olive. Fussy cut the Petal Pink flower and glue them onto the all old olive stamped flower. You now have the green stems and a colored flower. It looks more realistic.
I have cut the gold leafing out of a retired die set but Stampin Up has several current sets that would work with this technique. Once you have chosen your dies, you will take a piece of basic white cardstock and add an adhesive sheet to it. Then die-cut your stems out. Once you have them cut out, Peel the adhesive sheet off and add some of the glided leafing to the image and you will have a beautiful element to add to your card. You will adhere the largest flower down using your favorite adhesive, Be sure to add some of the gold leafing underneath the largest flower. Then pop up the smaller flower using dimensionals, I also add some of the gold leafing underneath the smaller flower also.
The final touch for the front of your card is to add the embellishments. I added a gold ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo pack and the gold enamel dots. Be sure to finish the inside of your card and the envelope.
