Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Botanicals For You


The inspiration image at The Card Concept's challenge this week suggests hearts, colour and flowers to me!

Here’s the inspiration image.....

Here are the essentials:
  • Watermelon Wonder card base was embossed with the Happy Heart Embossing Folder.
  • The greeting from Botanicals  For You was heat embossed onto a piece of Botanical Gardens Designer Series Vellum.
  • The vellum was adhered to the Watermelon Wonder card stock with Tear & Tape Adhesive...I was certain that it would show through but this stuff seems to be the ticket when it comes to invisible tape for vellum! YAY!
  • Rolled flowers were made by punching a 1 3/4 circle from a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock. The cardstock was crumpled and mashed so that I could peel the layers apart thus giving a 'suede' type look. I then rolled the flowers and adhered them to the leaves which were die cut with the Botanical Builder Framelit Dies.   
  • Flowers were painted with Wink of Stella Clear to give a glimmery finish.
