🎕Pastel Petals Card🎕
Happy Monday Everyone!!
I hope you all have had a lovely weekend :)
Following my post yesterday showing my first shaker card. I wanted to trial another new style of card. I was having a look online and saw the Z card. I really like the look of them so I thought I would give one a go. Whats the worst that can happen...right! :)
I love to learn new things and have fun whilst doing it, and I definitely had fun making this card :)
There are a few more pieces of card stock to cut than usual, but I think this card is worth the little extra work :)
For this card you will need to cut 6 pieces of card stock.
You will need:
Two pieces of Sweet Sugarplum card stock
5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches (14 x 10 cms)
Two pieces of Blushing Bride card stock
5 1/4 x 4 inches (13 1/2 x 10 cms)
Two pieces of Very Vanilla card stock
1 piece - 4 3/4 x 3 1/2 (12 x 9 cms)
1 piece - 11 x 3 1/4 inches (28 x 8 1/2 cms)
The piece of Very Vanilla card stock which measures 11 x 3 1/4 inches. Score at 4 1/2 and 9 inches (11 1/2 and 23 cms)
You will need to stamp your chosen design onto your pieces of Very Vanilla card stock.
The smaller piece is your card front and the long strip of card stock will be the "inside" of your card.
(NOTE - The piece you have scored, it will have three sections. The smallest section should be to the left. This is the section that will connect the card front to the rest of the card)
For this card design, use the floral style stamp from the set Timeless Texture along with a Rich Razzleberry ink pad.
Use the stamp off and on method and mainly focused this stamp on the corners of the Very Vanilla card stock pieces.
For the front of the card, stamp the smaller flower from the stamp set Birthday Blooms. Again use the Rich Razzleberry ink pad.
Using an aqua painter, paint the petals of the flowers using Pink Pirouette. Then paint around the edges and the stamen of the flower with a Sweet Sugarplum ink pad.
Pear Pizzazz was used for the stems and leaves of the flowers.
Ink around the edges of the Very Vanilla card stock using Pink Pirouette.
Now time to build your card up.
Using tear and tape, attach each piece of Blushing Bride card stock to a piece of the Sweet Sugarplum card stock. You now have your two backing pieces.
With dimensionals, attach your card front to one of the backing pieces.
Adhere the card "inside" (right hand side of the long piece of Very Vanilla card stock) using tear and tape to the other piece of backing piece.
Place tear and tape onto the smallest section of the long Very Vanilla piece and attach to the back of your card front. (This small piece should be on the right hand side of the card front)
Stamp on the inside of the card using a sentiment from the Birthday Blooms stamp set with Rich Razzleberry ink.
Voila! Your card is made.
Yes this card has more pieces that a typical card but I don't think it takes much longer and it is totally worth it!
