Happy Wednesday crafty friends! Spring has sprung and I was in the mood for flowers! I used Honey Bee Stamps Whimsical Spring Flowers Honey Cuts to create my card that's perfect for a very special person's spring birthday!
First I created my card base. I die cut the Garden Lattice Cover Plate Top and Base from 80# Neenah and adhered them together and then to an A2 card base with Bee Creative glue.
Next, I took a piece of 80# Neenah and inked it up with Detail Blender brushes and Dried Marigold, Saltwater Taffy, and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide inks. I spritzed on some water drops, let it dry, then added white paint splatters. While that was drying, I inked up another card panel with Rustic Wilderness, Mowed Lawn and Bundled Sage Distress Oxides.
I used all of the dies in the Whimsical Spring Flowers set and die cut my flowers and leaves. There is a great guide of layering ideas for the flowers on Honey Bee's site HERE. I adhered the flower layers together with Bee Creative glue. Then I added a bit of shape to the flowers and leaves with the stylus tool from a flower shaping kit.
I played around for a bit with the arrangement of my flowers and leaves. When I was happy with it, I took a photo to reference while I adhered them in place. I used foam dots on some of the flowers and Bee Creative glue on the other flowers and the leaves.
Next I stamped the sentiment from the Miss You Big Time set with clear embossing ink. I added black embossing powder and heat set it. I die cut the sentiment with the coordinating Honey Cut. Then I die cut two more from white cardstock and adhered them together. I added it to the card with foam dots and some glue.
Birthday cards must have sparkle, at least I think so! Haha! So I added sparkle to the flowers and around the sentiment with gems from the Hugs and Kisses Gem Sticker set.
Thank you so much for stopping by--I appreciate it so very much! Have a wonderful, crafty day!
