Hi and welcome to the Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop for April. Thanks so much for hopping with us this month. The theme for our April Blog Hop is a Sketch Challenge and here is the sketch we were challenged to use.
With the lovely Hues of Happiness Suite retiring at the end of this month I thought I’d use it for one last Blog Hop. I already had a bunch of flowers die cut, so this card came together rather quickly.
Here’s what I created.
Blog Hop Card Details
To make my card I started with an A5 piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock which I scored and folded in half. Next, I cut a piece of Hues of Happiness designer series paper measuring 139mm x 95mm which I adhered to the front of the card base.
I then cut a piece of Basic White cardstock measuring 145mm x 101mm. Using the Framed Florets Dies, I cut the oval from the centre of this piece before embossing with one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders. Next, I added some Foam Adhesive Strips to the back of the Basic White embossed piece, and then mounted to the card front.
My die cut flowers & leaves where then adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped my sentiment onto a 95mm x 13mm piece of Basic White cardstock using Blackberry Bliss ink. Next, I used the Banners Pick A Punch to flag one end of the sentiment piece. This was then adhered to the card front using a small piece of Foam Adhesive Strip and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
The final addition for the card front was to add some Fresh Freesia Opal Rounds from the 2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds.
I also decorated the inside of the card by adding an edge flower and a leaf die to a 145mm x 101mm piece of Basic White cardstock. This piece was adhered using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I hope my card has inspired you in some way and thanks for visiting.
