Colour INKspiration #CI51

Hello and welcome to my blog!

It is time for another creation for the Colour INKspiration crew.

I loved the inspiration photo this time. I also love floral arrangements too!
This one is very pretty!

I decided to use the Needle and Thread Bundle. I truly love the detail in the flower images. So much thought went into creating this beautiful stamp set.

First I cut a piece of Whisper White to 14cm x 9cm with my Stampin' Trimmer. I used the floral image from the framelits™️ to create the stitched floral background. I just adore this fantastic floral flourish.

Next, I stamped the larger flower in Highland Heather and the smaller ones in Berry Burst. I stamped the leaves in Pear Pizzaz.  I die cut all these images with coordinating framelits™️.

I then die cut the small unfilled leaves in Pear Pizzaz card stock and the three floral/ribbon flourishes in Mango Melody card stock.

I used glue dots and dimensionsals to create the bouquet of flowers and adhered them to the Whisper White base.

I stamped the sentiment in Berry Burst and die cut that piece with the label framelit™️. I adhered it with dimensionals.

Next step was to mount the white piece onto a Berry Burst piece of card stock measuring 14.3cm x10cm. I then glued that onto a Berry Burst Card Base that measures 21cm x14.8cm folded in half.

I hope you enjoyed reading how this card was created. I certainly loved putting all of those beautiful colours into a floral arrangement on my card.

I hope that I have inspired you today to create something for yourself or someone special. A hand made card can brighten someones day. I enjoy sending and love receiving cards in my mail. Sounds old fashioned these days, but I am yet to find someone who does not appreciate a card.
