Fancy Flowers CAS Card
Posted on July 01 2018
Hi everybody! Thi here and I'm happy to debut my LDRS Creative card today. My card today features Polkadoodles Fancy Flowers and Polkadoodles Super Sprigs.
First, I did some ink blending onto white card stock paper. I blended inks in darker and lighter shades to get a nice gradient for dimension and interest. I then die cut the Super Sprigs and Fancy Flowers out of the ink blended paper.
For the center piece of the Fancy Flowers, I die cut them out in glittery paper because...GLITTER! Quick Tip: I always use a shim when I die cut anything out of glitter paper. It just comes out cleaner - especially when it has tiny details like the little holes in the center piece of the Fancy Flowers dies.
Next, I popped the middle piece of the flower with a small piece of foam tape only in the center. This creates dimension but also gives it a soft, fluttery look...which I love.
I kept things clean by adhering everything to a plain, white A2 sized card base. I first adhered the leaves and sprigs directly on the card base with some glue. I then added more foam tape to back of the entire flower and arranged them on top of the leaves and sprigs.
For my sentiment, I heat embossed a sentiment from Polkadoodles Mini Winnie. I wanted something very plain and the font on this sentiment was perfect. Not to mention, the sentiment itself couldn't be anymore perfect for a fun, cheery card as well!
I stamped the sentiment with LDRS Watermark Emboss Pad onto black cardstock and heat embossed white embossing powder. I popped that on with foam tape as well. Lastly, I glued on some clear droplets and my card is finished.
Thank you for checking out my card. I hope I inspired you to make something today!
