I have a very pretty card to share with you today featuring the gorgeous Honey Bee Stamps: Lovely Layers Magnolia – Honey Cuts. This is a beautiful flower with lots of details and was so easy to colour and put together. The pink flower really pops as I have used a complementary colour – green to coordinate with the pink. I am definitely going to invest in more Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers flowers as they are just stunning.
My project today
I have created a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base out of white cardstock. I then layered black and white cardstock using my Crafty Corners. I cut a piece of white cardstock 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ and stenciled the brick background using Mint ink and the Gina K Designs – Stencils – Brick Wall. This was then added to the card front to create the base for the leaves and flowers.
I die cut the large leaves from the Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers: Spring Greenery – Honey Cuts out of Neenah Classic Crest 80Ib White Cardstock. I coloured them with Fresh Pear, Grassy Knoll and Key Lime inks and shaped them lightly with my fingers. I then trimmed the ends and added them to the card front creating a corner on the lower left of the card.
I have die cut all the leaves and flowers from the Honey Bee Stamps: Lovely Layers Magnolia – Honey Cuts out of Neenah Classic Crest 80Ib White Cardstock. I coloured the petals with Ballet Slippers and Sparkling Rose inks before assembling the flower using foam tape to pop the petals. I then die cut the leaves from the same card and coloured them with Mint, Meadow and Emerald City inks. These were shaped lightly using my fingers. I added the leaves to the bottom left over the larger leaves using some foam tape for dimension. I then added the magnolia to the top of the leaves with some foam tape.
I stamped the sentiments from the Pink Fresh Studio – Basic Banners Stamp Set in Altenew Obsidian Black ink on white cardstock and die cut with the coordinating die. I then die cut two more banners using plain cardstock and stacked three banners together with the stamped image on top. This was added to the top of the card as shown.
To finish I have added some clear iridescent gems to the card for a bit of sparkle.
