Thinking of You

Spellbinders | A2 Filigree Marquis

Hi everyone!

Today’s card makes me think of summer! And, while it may only be on paper (and in my head), it’s just the escape I needed from the cold, windy, and snowy day we are having here in Wisconsin. I love how card-making lets me make my own sunshine!

This card features the new A2 Filigree Marquis die set from @teamspellbinders and is part of the newly released “Classically Becca Collection”. I love the medallion in this set and thought it would make the perfect backdrop for some simple pink, yellow, and orange flowers.

To make this card, I first cut the medallion die and gently ink blended it using Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink. I attached the medallion to the center of a card panel and ink-blended the edges using the same ink.

I die cut the flowers and the leaves out of Susan’s Garden Specialty Cardstock. You could use any cardstock, but I prefer to use Susan’s Garden Specialty Cardstock because I think it responds better to the shaping.

Once my flowers were cut, I used Distress Oxide Inks to blend the colors for the petals and leaves (list of ink colors is included below) and then I shaped the petals of the flowers just a bit to give them some dimension. I used the round ball stylus and gently pinched them with my fingers. Once you do a petal or two, you’ll quickly see how easy it is to shape them the way you like.

I assembled my flowers and arranged them on the medallion, tucking in the leaves here and there where I thought they looked best.

I used gold foil to hot foil a sentiment onto white cardstock and then gently ink-blended the edges a bit with the Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink to tone down the white a bit. I adhered this to my panel with a bit of foam tape.

I finished with a few iridescent pearls and then mounted the panel using foam adhesive onto my card front.

I hope you enjoyed this project and that you have a wonderfully creative day!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
