Irresistible Blooms

This was such a fun card to make, the back ground reminds me of the strings of beads that many houses in the 70’s here in Australia had hanging in the doorways.

I used one of the dies from the bundle to create this fun retro feel card.

The Hello, Irresistible Bundle is part of the Stampin’ Up!® Online Exclusive , these are products that will be only found in my Online Store.

  • Cut all cardstock to measurements above

    • Using VersaMark Stamp the large flower and 2 sets of leaves, one of each size.
    • Heat emboss with white embossing powder, use setting 1 or cool setting on Heat Gun. High or hot setting can curl the vellum.
    • Die cut the flower and leaves
  • Strips
    • Die cut a set of strips in each of the colours – Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo
    • Trim each set of strips into two lengths
  • Card Front
    • Adhere the strips to card front -Basic Black & trim excess length. You can add adhesive sheets to the back of the Strips before die cutting or use dots of multi-purpose glue to adhere down.
    • Adhere the card front to Coastal Cabana card mat.
    • Attach matted card front to the Basic Black card base.
  • Sentiment
    • Die cut square using 5cm stitched square from the Stylish Shapes.
    • Stamp sentiment at the bottom of square using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
    • Adhere to card front in the center of the card front.
  • Flower & Leaves
    • Add a dimensional to the center of the flower behind the stamens & attach to the sentiment square.
    • Add leaves to either side of the flower using multi-purpose glue.
    • You can add extra mini dimensionals cut in half under the thicker embossed lines of the flower. I added these after flowers and leaves were attached.
  • Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots
    • Add the gold Brushed Metallic Dots on the dot on the card front (see picture below)
  • Card Insert
    • Adhere Basic White card insert into the card

** When using vellum try to hide your adhesive behind elements E.G. behind embossing (in this case).
