I decided to make this card with a base of Calypso Coral, Layer 1 is Whisper White with the edges sponged in Coral. The top is Baja Breeze, which I textured with the Delicate Designs embossing folder to make it look like a lacy table cloth. I used Lucky Limeade for the leaves and a scrap of Island Indigo card stock for my planter. I used Calypso Coral, Riding Hood Red, Old Olive and a touch of Island Indigo ink.
Here is how you can make your own.....
- Using your Blossom Petals XL Punch, punch your 12 flower petals in white card stock.
- Sponge Calypso Coral on one side of 6 of the petals.
- Repeat sponging the Calypso Coral on the other 6 petals but sponge on the opposite side.
- Sponge Riding Hood Red on the opposite side of the Calypso Coral on each of the 6 petals.
- Sponge Island Indigo over the Red edges to create a darker contrast. The Indigo will give a the red edges a purplish look.
- Build the flower by alternating petal front to back making sure you have the darker edges on the outside.
- Punch the leaves out of Lucky Limeade card stock I used the smallest petals on the punch.
- I used scraps to free form cut the base and stems of each flower and gave the edges a swipe of Old Olive to give it some contrast.
- I assembled my flowers and then popped up the flower cluster with dimensionals.
- I made the "flower pot" from the largest of the Apothecary Accents Framelites Dies. Then I cut it down to fit my paper.
