Hi Everyone, back to the Birch Press Grace die set for this one, using it to create a blank circle on the card to accommodate the greeting and the flower arrangement. This time I have chosen a yellow and orange colour scheme with gold accents, which whilst it is a touch Autumnal for this time of year I am very pleased with the results.
The card base needs to be 4.25 x 5.5 inches, to fit the American sized dies, so you can either cut and score your own from cream card or like me, trim down a 5 x 7 inch cream card.
Using the Grace layering die set cut Layer A from peach card, Layer B from pale yellow card and Layer C from dark orange card. Set aside the circles and glue together the other layers.
Lay the layered die cuts on top of the card front and mark where the greeting should go. Stamp the greeting in embossing ink directly on to the front of the card and heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Glue the die cut layers to the card front.
Die cut two gold leaves and glue to the edge of the circle so that they over lap the edge, leave the ends of the leaf stems unglued so that they will lift a little to add extra dimension. Arrange a selection of flowers at the point where the leaf stems would meet, and glue in place. Curl the wire flower stems around a bamboo skewer or similar object to make them into spirals. I used ultra high bond double sided tape to adhere the flowers to make sure they are secure.
Again this is a very versatile card as you could switch up the colour scheme and message to suit a whole range of occasions. All the supplies used are linked below. If you have any questions please feel free to leave them in the comments area below.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
