March ECD Design Team Challenge- Flowers!!

I love flowers! They make me smile and bring me joy. This month's theme for the Elizabeth Craft Designs design team challenge guessed it- flowers! I used the new Garden Notes Hydrangea and our beautiful Asian Vase to create this card.

Card Base- standard A2 size from white cardstock (5 1/2" x 8 1/2" folded in half). Cut a piece of pattern paper to 4" x 5 1/4" and a strip of a coordinating pattern paper to 4" x 2". Ink with brown ink and adhere to front.

Vase - Diecut Asian Vase from White Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz. Emboss with Lots of Dots Embossing Folder. Ink outer edge with brown ink. Adhere to card front on foam adhesive.

Flowers- Diecut stems, leaves and petals from Garden Notes- Hydrangea. To get the variety of color for the petals, ink a piece of cream colored cardstock with VersaMagic ink mixing the following colors on the cardstock- Aegean Blue, Sea Breeze and Tea Leaves. Diecut 6 sets of petals. 6 stems and 6 sets of leaves. Shape and assemble directly on the card. You can see a video tutorial of how to assemble these flowers HERE.

To complete add Gold Corners and Borders to card front.
