Hello my Crafty Friends! Candice with you today with another floral Christmas card!
I truly believe that Create a Smile has the best floral stamps out there and I wanted to use them in a Christmas card, so I combined snowflakes and flowers!
I began my card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.
For the background, I first used the snowflake stencil stamping it with an embossing ink pad and heat embossing the large snowflake in white. I then lightly applied victorian velvet and milled lavender in an ombre effect.
I die cut 2 snowflakes from thick white cardstock, adhered to the inked panel and trimmed the edges off and glued this panel to the front of my card base.
Next, I stamped my flowers and leaves from the Floral Decorations and Wildflowers stamp sets, colored them with copic markers and accenting with a white pen and fussy cut them out. I attached them to the card with glue dots and foam tape to give dimension as it flows across the card!
I finished by die cutting my stitched banner, heat embossing the sentiment from the Small Christmas Sentiments stamp set and inked with victorian velvet. I also added a few snowflake sequins, clear domes and white nuvo drops!
Floral cards are out of my comfort zone, but I find the Create a Smile floral stamps to be a great size and variety to easily work with for stunning flower cards!
