Video: Happy Engagement Peonies

Hello everyone and welcome back for another card and video! For today’s project, I created a glittery floral card using our Fresh Cut Peonies, Poppies and Brushed Happy stamps.

First I started by stamping all the blossoms and foliage. For the large peony blossoms, I used my Mini Misti to help me position the second and third layers. I freehanded the rest of the stamping. For the large peony blossoms, I used our Peony Collection Inks and an additional darker hue (Lipstick Red) to get that raspberry hue. For the my greens, I used our Soft Garden, Bright Fern and Basil Mojito inks.

Once the stamping was complete, I die cut the peonies using the coordinating dies.  For my poppy blossom and leaves, I fussy cut those elements. However, dies for our Fresh Cut Poppies will be available in two weeks!

Next I rose gold heat embossed the large sentiment from our Brushed Happy set and then used the coordinating die to die cut the happy.  Next I created a stitched border panel using our Double Stitched Rectangles (Large and Small). I used the largest die in the Large set and the fourth largest die in the Small set.  I applied some blue glitter adhesive paper to a top folding card base. I positioned the glitter paper so that it would show through the window of my navy border panel.  Next I popped up the border panel onto my card base using foam tape.

Then I arranged and popped up my flowers and leaves at the corners of my card.  I adhered the Happy sentiment diagonally across my card adhering the areas behind the H and Y onto the florals. Then I embossed the engagement sentiment in the same Rose Gold embossing powder and fussy cut it. Then I popped it up right under the Brushed Happy sentiment. Lastly I added some clear Dew Drops in 7 and 5mm around my sentiment.

That’s all for my card today! I hope you enjoyed today’s post and video.
