Hello and Happy May to you all. I had so much fun creating this card. I used the new memory box Gracious Floral 3D Embossing Folder and Cutting Die, along with memory box Art Stencil Set called Gracious Floral.
I only colored some of the booms , you can detail it as much or as little as you want. I love the softness of this card .
I die-cut the single flower then placed it in the embossing folder, as in the photo above. ( just line it up ) the detail after it is embossed is beautiful.
The sentiment is from Poppystamps called Modest Greetings 1 I popped up the cut flower with some foam tape.
Be careful with your panel when you are blending the colors using the stencil ( I got some on my panel) I was able to cut most of it down. The ink that remained was easily erased with the sand eraser, pictured two photos below. It dose a beautiful job without messing up the paper. Just a little tip .
I used a few different shades of green but when I did the other colors I used the same color and it just got darker as I kept layering with the new stencils.
I ended up not using the dark gray as pictured above and went wit a soft yellow center same color as the bloom. (Below)
Thank you so much for the visit, I hope I have inspired you to get some time in the craft room .
I also want to wish a very Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there.
God bless you all.
