Re-introducing … Blushing Bride. After an absence, this colour has returned to the Subtles Collection as part of the colour refresh.
I partnered it here with Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Whisper White. I wanted to make the Crepe Filter Paper flowers the focal point of the card so I kept it simple. On top of the layer of Blushing Bride card stock, I added a bold greeting in "Thanks So Much" from the Oh, Hello stamp set cut out with a Label Collection framelit. A paper ribbon of Early Espresso card stock notched at the end completes the card except for the flowers.
The Crepe Filter Paper flowers have a large pearl center and lots of texture and height. Scroll down to see how the flowers were made.
Ink: Early Espresso (126974)
I used two different flower shapes from the Secret Garden framelit – the smallest flower and the daisy.
To finish the flowers, I adhered a large pearl on top of the brad.
I cut out 8 flowers at one time with the Secret Garden framelit and then separated the flowers.
Then I crumpled each flower individually. Next, I opened up each flower and layered them slightly offset.
With the paper piercing tool and pierce mat, make a hole through all of the layers and insert a brad to hold the layers in place.
The look of tissue paper with the strength of card stock. Fun to stamp, dye, ink, punch, or stitch. 12 total sheets: 4 rectangles (ea. 6" x 12") and 8 circles (ea. 6" diam.).
