Hello everyone!!! Hope you’re enjoying the last day of the year of 2018 with your family and friends! It’s TaeEun here today with a New Year’s card and the last floral card of this year 🙂 .
I’ve made a tunnel card decorated with beautiful floral border from Certificate of Awesomeness stamp set.
I started by making three panels. First I blended Cobalt Breeze and Blue Diamond on the first panel and Grape Crush and Cobalt Breeze on the second panel. I applied the colors on about two thirds of the upper part of the two panels. To apply the colors on the base panel I masked the border using masking tape and blended Italian Denim, Grape Crush and Plum Wine. I splattered white opaque ink on all of the panels and let them dry.
The first two panels were cut using Double Stitched Rectangle dies making a window while the window of the second panel is smaller than the one of the first panel.
I gold heat embossed the floral border image and small floral cluster from Certificate of Awesomeness set two times. I colored the images using Zig brush markers and a clear glitter pen and cut them with coordinating dies.
The happy die cut was cut with Bold General Greeting Word Plate Dies from some white cardstock, which was adhered on the first panel. I stamped Happy New Year sentiment from Banner Holiday Add On set in Cobalt Breeze.
I arranged the floral clusters and foam mounted them on every panel as shown in the picture.
Now I started assembling the card into a tunnel card. I cut two thin strips of light weight cardstock and folded them in accordion shape. I attached the sides of each panel to the accordion strips to connect them together.
I finished off the card by adding some clear Dew Drops.
As I love coloring floral images, I have one more card featuring Amazing Gardenia to share with you. I watercolored the big gorgeous gardenia image a while back. And Now I’m glad I could turn it into a card before the year ends 🙂 .
I did some no-line coloring on Amazing Gardenia and cut it using the coordinating die. I then blended Peach blossom and Crystal Pewter dye ink on a white cardstock. After the panel was dry I heat embossed our new Modern Plaid background stamp in Rose Gold Embossing powder on it. I love this background stamp! It gives every background panel a unique look!
I cut the background panel using two Double Stitched Rectangle dies to make the frame. The frame was then foam mounted on a gray cardbase and the center panel was adhered flat. I then added the gardenia and the gray sentiment strip. The sentiment is from Most Interesting Cardmaker set.
Thank you so much everyone for your love and support throughout this year!
Wishing you all a happy and crafty New Year !!!
