The month of March can be cold and wet here on the east coast, so I was very happy to be able to work with the beautiful Floral Trio release from PinkFresh Studio this month. These flowers helped me see past the dirty snow, looking forward to the new growth that spring brings.
Lets jump right in on how this card came together.
I started by using the PinkFresh Studio Floral Trio Hot Foil Plate using Silver Glimmer Hot Foil. I foiled it three times, using the Spellbinders Glimmer Foil System, twice onto white cardstock and once onto black cardstock, because I didn't have a plan mapped out yet and I wanted to have options.
Using the PinkFresh Studio Floral Trio Stencils, I started adding color to the foiled white cardstock panels. I stenciled one using Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo, Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn DOX Inks. I used Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint DOX Inks on the second white cardstock panel. You'll see that project below.
Next, using the PinkFresh Studio Floral Trio Die, I cut a scrap piece of cardstock so that I could use the negative shape to mask off the stenciled portion of my card front. I then blended Tumbled Glass DOX Ink around the outside edges of the floral spray.
I then stamped a sentiment from the PinkFresh Studio Floral Trio Clear Stamp Set onto the bottom left corner of the card front.
I finished this card off by framing the image in black cardstock and then mounting it to a soft pink A2 size card base.
I die cut the yellow floral spray using the Floral Trio Die and mounted it to a pretty piece of 6x6" patterned paper that was left over from one of the 12 Kits of Occasion and made a frame using the Spellbinders Shadowbox Frame Die.
Some Yellow Stickles on the details of the flowers finished this project off nicely.
I loved how the gold foil on the black cardstock came out so I simply trimmed a bit off the edge so I could add some striped scrapbook paper and gold gems. Easy peasy!
