Hello Beautiful Release
Welcome Back! Get it ..Welcome? Yeah, that was cheesy, I know! I just love all of the detail and elements of this card! I’m so glad that you stopped by to check it out!
Now for the deets! I started by stamping the flowers from the SSS Best Friend Ever set with VersaMark ink on Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and embossing it with Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder. Then I got to coloring with my Copic Markers! The colors I used are: YG03, YG13, YG17, RV00, RV10, RV11 and Y11.
Once the coloring was done, it was time to do some die cutting. I used the SSS Best Friend Ever Die set to cut the flowers. I cut the Welcome die once from gold cardstock from my stash and four times from Neenah 110lb. I also used the 110lb to cut the Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackable frame from Lawn Fawn and the SSS Simple Stem four times.
I needed something behind the frame that would work well with my flowers. I opted for this piece of beautiful, blue plaid paper from PinkFresh Studio, which is in their My Favorite Story Collection. I trimmed it down and mounted it behind my frame using 3M Foam Tape. Before I adhered the flowers with foam tape, I decided the placement for the SSS Simple Stem and adhered those to the blue panel with Craft Tacky Glue.
This card is almost done!! I adhered all of my layers of the Welcome die together using Craft Tacky Glue. Remember that was four layers out of Neenah 110lb cardstock and once out of gold cardstock! That’s a crazy amount, but I needed it to be sturdy, because the Welcome sentiment is only attached to the frame at the letters W and E.
Just look at that dimension!! Love, love, love it! As always, I had to add some blingy sequins to finish it up.
Well, there you have it! My floral welcome card showcasing the new Welcome die from the Simon Says Stamp HELLO BEAUTIFUL release. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you found some inspiration to get crafty!
