There is a story behind this card! I was supposed to create a tutorial to be added to next months Amy’s Stampin’ Krew tutorials and Oh So Succulent is the theme. We’ll, I had great ideas, and as they evolved they became more and more involved and when I completed this card I realized-Oh dear! It would take three pages of instructions to describe how to make this card step by step! So I did another card and it will be my tutorial. This is my card for today!
For this card I chose Calypso Coral Card Stock for the Card Base, and layered it with Old Olive Card Stock. Next I layered a piece of Whisper White Card Stock on top of the Old Olive. Next I took a 2 X 3 3/4″ Calypso Coral and layered with a 1 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ Old Olive. Then added a 1 1/2″ layer of Succulent Garden DSP onto of that.
The Basket behind the flowers in the bigger circle is from the carryover Holiday Stamp set Basket of Wishes Stamped in Early Espresso and colored in using the Blender Pen and Early Espresso Ink on Whisper White Card Stock. Die cut using Layering Circles Dies. Graduating circle dies were used to die cut the Calypso Coral and the Old Olive background circles. The Whisper White Circle was adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals to raise it a bit above the Old Olive.
The flowers were all stamped on Whisper White Card Stock using Sweet Sugar Plum, Calypso Coral and Old Olive and colored in using a Blender pen with the same inks. They were then die cut using the matching Succulent Framelits Dies. These die cut flowers and stems were then adhered using Multipurpose Liquid Glue once I had carefully arranged them in a pleasing fashion.
The lower right ovals used the basic colors as above and die cut from the same size Layering Ovals Framelits. The sentiment is stamped in Old Olive on Whisper White from the stamp set Basket of Wishes.
The little enamel dots are in Calypso Coral.
The inside was layered like the front, the sentiment is stamped in Old Olive using the Stylized Birthday Stamp. The flowers are die cut from the Oh So Succulent flowers, stamped in Calypso Coral and colored in using a Blender Pen. Adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
