Slim Star Bouquet

Kia ora Koutou

Iris are stunning flowers and I have another floral card to share with you. Today I have a card with purple and yellow irises made using the new Heartfelt Creations Iris Garden collection. These irises are just bursting out of the beautiful frame and heralding the start of spring and warm weather.

Today’s project was created with products provided by Heartfelt Creations.

Scroll down past the photos for instructions on how to make this card.

Instructions:

Cut a piece of Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper 9 1/4: x 8 1/2”, score at 4 1/2” along the shortest side and fold to create a base card of 4 14” x 9 1/4”.  Cut a piece of striped decorative paper 4 1/4” x 9 1/4” and adhere to the front of the card.  Die cut the decorative frame using the Nos. 2, 3 and 4 dies from the HCD3-7445 Slim Star Lattice Rectangle Die set out of Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper.  Add Frosting Powder to the decorative frame using Dries Clear on a dry sponge.  Die cut a frame out of pale yellow paper using the No. 2 and No. 4 dies and adhere behind the decorative frame.  Adhere the frame to the front of the card using foam tape.

Adhere an EZ Stem wire to the centre of the frame.

Stamp the leave images from the HCPC-31020 Iris Garden Petals Cling Stamp Set in Olive ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper.  Colour the images with Leaf Green and Olive inks and die cut with the coordinating dies.  Colour the backs of the leaves with Leaf Green ink and shape using the coordinating mold.  Add 3-D Crystal Lacquer to the leaves and allow to dry.  Adhere the leaves over the EZ Stem Wires as shown with foam squares.  

Stamp the flower images from the HCPC-31020 Iris Garden Petals Cling Stamp Set in Violet ink and Citrus Burst inks on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper.  Colour the centres of the purple and yellow flowers with Fresh Lemon ink.  Colour the petals of the purple flowers with violet ink and the petals of the yellow flowers with Buttercream ink and die cut with the coordinating dies.  Colour the backs of the purple flowers with Violet ink and the edges of the petals with Deep Purple ink.  Colour the yellow flowers on the backs with Buttercream ink and the edges with Sunflower ink.  Shape the petals using the coordinating mold.  Pierce the centres of the petals assemble the flowers.  I have used 3 petals per flower and trim one set of petals in the centre. Insert yellow stamens in one purple petal that has be cupped inwards and add one trimmed petal to the cupped petals using a glue gun.  Add the second complete set of petals cupped downwards and secure with hot glue.  Add the last trimmed petal to the centre of the petals facing downwards using the glue gun.  For the yellow and purple flowers I have used gold glitter stamens to the centres. Add Crystal Clear glitter using clear gloss gel medium on a paintbrush. Add Heart of Gold Prills to the flowers as shown.  Trim the wires and adhere to the EZ Stem wires and over the leaves as shown.  Roll some single petals to create some buds and add Crystal Clear glitter using clear gloss gel medium with a paintbrush.  Adhere under leaves as shown.  

Stamp the small leaf images from the HCPC-31022 Iris Garden Accents Cling Stamp Set  in Olive ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper.  Colour with Leaf Green ink and die cut with the coordinating dies.  Adhere around the flowers as shown.

Die cut two sentiments from the HCD3-7448 Slim Ornate Rectangle Die – one from Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper and one from Silver cardstock.  Adhere the silver sentiments over the white sentiments and adhere to the card front as shown.

Add some clear drops on the flowers and leaves.
