This gorgeous card relies on Fine Art Floral patterned paper and a matching Golden Garden acetate overlay. The paper combo is so pretty. It makes sense to keep everything else minimal, so the full impact isn’t diminished. This design could easily be switched up as a wedding congratulation or anniversary card by swapping out the sentiment. I don’t know about you, but my summer seems to fill with these kinds of events, and I always need another card.
Start with a base of Petal Pink and then add a layer of Old Olive cut to 4″x 5-1/4″. Next, you’ll need to match up the 12×12″ sheet of Fine Art Floral paper with the correct sheet of Golden Garden acetate. Then cut them both at 3-3/4″ x 5″. I used glue dots in discreet areas under the gold images to adhere the acetate to the paper.
That’s the basic card. Rather than ribbon, I used a 1/2″ x 3-3/4″ strip of Old Olive paper. Next, I punched out the sentiment using the Everyday Label punch. The sentiment is stamped in Tuxedo Black ink, and I added a couple of partial flower images to the edges using Petal Pink ink. The label is on Dimensionals. For a final embellishment, I added three gold Metallic Pearls.
If you love this card, order the paper and acetate now. The mini catalog products are retiring at the end of the month, but the stamp set and dies are in the new catalog. So you have plenty of time if you like the entire suite, like me. Let me know what you think about this card or if you have any requests for techniques or other cards you’d like to see explained. I’m happy to do the research and experimentation. Until next time…Ink up!
