Perusing Karen's gorgeous gallery led me to this beauty: https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/g...&ppuser=281735 That pushed me to try making a card like it. I have wanted to in the past but, quite frankly, been too lazy! Because I wanted to mask the flowers for stamping. Today was the day. I also scaled the card down to an A2 size from Karen's lovely 5x7. I stamped the various flowers and added the greenery. It was a trick to find stamps for the centers. I used the dot from What I Love for the larger flowers and then found a small stamp in the Blooms Fill In stamp set that I could use for the smaller flowers. For the small yellow flowers, I stamped off once before stamping on the card to soften the black.
I heat embossed the sentiment and then added Nuvo drops to the centers of the flowers but my Nuvo drops did something funky so one yellow flower looks a bit strange because of that.
All of this was mounted to my hoarded textured Lovely Lilac cs.
Thank you for the push to try it Karen! And thanks for looking!
