Create an Bright Floral Set of Thank You Cards with Fireworks Shimmery Craft Sprays

I love large floral stamps, but because of their size, they don’t always lend themselves to be the center point of a card design. Instead of thinking of stamped images always being in the center today I am doing a split off-set design. Not only do you create an interesting look it is a quick and easy way to create two cards in one crafting session.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour + dry time

Directions


Step 1

Cut 2 panels of white cardstock, each 4″ x 5″. Place them side by side on the craft mat. Ink stamp with VersaFine Clair in Nocturne and stamp on both panel simultaneously.


Step 2

Place a stencil in the open/white space to the right of the image. Use molding paste through the stencil to add dimension. Let dry.


Step 3

Using a paintbrush, paint Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray in Dandelion on the smaller flower. Paint a light layer of Fireworks in Tangelo on the larger flower then use Fireworks in Dandelion to blend the colors. Paint Fireworks in Rich Cocoa in the center of the flowers. Ink the edges of each panel with Brilliance in Sunflower Yellow. Stamp “Thank you” with VersaFine Clair in Nocturne on white cardstock. Use an art dauber to add yellow ink to the sentiments.


Step 4

Mat the panels with yellow cardstock. Create cards from orange cardstock and add the stamped panels to each.


Step 5

Mat the sentiments with yellow cardstock. Add the sentiments to the cards with foam adhesives.
