Garden Grandeur Hi

Hello Crafty Friends!  Hope you are doing well and having a fabulous day!  Tracy here with my very first post for LDRS!  So excited to be joining this amazing team! For today's project, I'm highlighting the Garden Grandeur set.  I can't even tell you how much I love stamp, stencil and die sets!  These sets just make for such quick, easy and beautiful cards!  So let's get into the deets for this card!
To begin, I stamped the floral image from the Garden Grandeur set using black ink and heat set it using clear embossing powder.  I attached the stencil to the image and used Pink Tutu, Lipstick Jungle, Scarlet Rose, Lantern Yellow, Dan-D-Lion, Key Lime Pie and Olive Branch to add color.  Once all the stenciling was done, I used the coordinating die to cut it out.
I trimmed an A2 panel of cardstock and did some light ink blending in the corners using Pink Tutu ink again.  I wanted to add some more interest to the ink blended panel so I used the Pretty Patterns Slim Line Die set to cut a frame.  I positioned the frame diagonally across my panel and adhered with glue, trimming off the excess.  I didn't want the excess to go to waste, so I continued to glue those pieces on the edges of the panel.  This is such a great way to stretch your supplies!  Slim line or even square dies can be positioned differently to give added interest to your projects.
For the 'hi' sentiment, I opted for the Chloe Alpha Lowercase letters.  I die cut each letter three times and glued those together for dimension.  I love dimension on my cards, as you'll see!  I played around with the positioning of the floral element and the sentiment until I was satisfied with the way it looked.
I glued the sentiment directly to the ink blended panel and adhered the floral piece in the top corner using a combination of glue and foam tape, you know for dimension!  I trimmed off the excess of the floral piece and added that to the bottom corner, trimming off the excess again.  I didn't want that little piece to go to waste, so I just added it on the side.
To finish up this project, I adhered the whole panel to the card base, and added some pearls for added interest.  I hope you enjoyed this project, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty as well!  I took not wasting anything to a whole new level on this card!  I totally should have taken a picture of the tiny, little tidbits that were leftover!
Thanks so much for joining me today!  See ya next time!
Tracy
