PTI 11th Anniversary Day 4: Floral Challenge
I'm back with my card for the floral challenge as part of the Papertrey Ink 11th anniversary festivities. I chose to use a retired set called Embellishments and a limited edition mini set called One Big Happy. I love the color Simply Chartreuse paired with black and white. It's very striking!
I stamped a large flourish from Embellishments on white cardstock and then added two tiny flowers in Simply Chartreuse. I stamped the big flower from One Big Happy in black ink and cut it with the matching die. I then stamped the smaller flower in Simply Chartreuse ink with a black center. After cutting it out as well, I layered the two flowers together with extra cardstock in between for a just little bit of dimension. I put black Nuvo drops around the flourishes and used Glossy Accents in the center of the flower. I love the extra shine they both add to the card.
I cut the word 'happy' from black cardstock using the One Big Happy dies and glued it in place. I stamped the word 'birthday' in Simply Chartreuse ink just above the die cut word. I layered the whole panel on a small strip of black and a piece of Simply Chartreuse cardstock that was punched with a scallop border. I glued a small piece of striped Simply Chartreuse pattern paper on a white card base and then added everything on top.
I really love how this card turned out! I think it would be a pretty design in other colors. Go to the Papertrey Ink blog here to see many cards for the floral challenge.
