I am here for you card

For today’s hop I prepared fresh spring card with lily bouquet wrapped in a kraft package. It looks elegant and soft, I even almost can hear the smell of flowers! Also, this card is very simple to make, but the result is amazing!

I started with stamping the lilies from Layered Lily stamp set in soft pink colors with touches of the bright pink color. I used Red Cosmos Oval Set of Altenew’s Crisp inks and the lightest color is Cotton Candy Crisp Dye Ink. I made three lilies and many leaves. For them I used Green Fields Oval Set. I then die cut all images with the matching dies.

To make the wrapping, I used the kraft card stock. I took 3-inch wide strip of the card stock, made some score lines and fold it, after this I cut off few extra pieces. To add volume to the packaging, I curved it just a little and glued together ends. You can see it on the pictures.

For the background, I stamped with the wood grain texture stamp in Morning Frost Crisp Dye Ink and then blend with the same color over the texture. I adhered the wrapping to the panel and foam mounted lilies and leaves. You can see the depth and dimensions in the photo below.

At the end, I stamped and adhered some flowers stems. Layered Lily set has no this details, so I took it from Painted Poppy stamp set. The last detail is white heat embossed sentiment from Sentiments & Quotes stamp set on the black narrow banner and some liquid accents.

Your next stop is Sara Naumann‘s blog. Good luck and have fun!

    SO pretty! I love that you added the stems coming out of the «wrapper» (which, by the way, is just genius and the perfect touch for this card). Thank you so much for an idea going straight to my «ideas» file!
