Always & Forever

Hello friends, Birgit here with you today featuring a card with a beautiful floral bouquet!


I started by cutting these flowers and leaves from Cheery Lynn Floral Bouquet Kit out of Elizabeth Craft Soft Finish Card Stock and inked them up using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  I love working with this soft finish card stock as it truly is soft to the touch and has a nice bit of texture to it.

Once I decided on the layout of my flowers I pressed a piece of Glad Press N' Seal onto the arrangement and set it aside.  This was a tip I learned from the incredibly talented Laurie Willison.

This allows me to keep the design in tact while I continued on with my project.

 
Next I cut a pretty frame using Sue Wilson's Australian Collection Background out of white card stock and then I assembled my card front.

Once the card front was ready, I  simply added Glossy Accents to the back side of the arrangement, flipped it over and added it to my project exactly where I want it to go and then peeled off the Press N' Seal.

 
I added a smaller flower to the center of the large flower with a piece of foam tape to add dimension


and two strips of silver sparkle paper to both sides of the lacy frame and a sentiment from PTI's Bold & Beautiful Sentiments that was also popped up using foam tape.   

Here's a list of products I used that can be found at Dies R Us:

    6. Birgit, your inking of the dies is awesome as usual. You get such a different look by doing that vs. cutting dies out of already colored cardstock. I wish I had your talent. Beautiful card.
