Lovely Lattice Country Floral Spectacular. I imagine that you already know that I LOVE the Country Floral Embossing Folder. Not only because if is FREE, but because it is stunning! I seriously don’t think you need to do much with the folder other than use it and stick it on a card. That said, I thought I would have a go at keeping today’s project pretty simple, with just some soft fussy cut flowers.
Because we are still in Sale-a-Bration mode I pulled the Lovely Lattice stamp set, but wanted to just use some of the flowers. I stamped them in Versamark on Vellum and then heat embossed in White. I love the soft look of this and that all you then need to do is add some colour to the back. It is perfectly possible to use Stampin’ Write Markers for the colouring, but they do have a tendency to make the vellum curl. Because of this, I would recommend using Stampin’ Blends. As the alcohol dries quickly, these are perfect for colouring on vellum, and help to keep the paper flat. There is no need to be particularly accurate about the colouring as the embossed lines hide a multitude of sins!!
I wanted the flowers to sit on top of the embossed layers, so grabbed my snips and fussy cut the larger flowers out, four in one large cluster and then one on its own. The Country Floral Embossed piece is just Whisper White, this was then layered on a larger mat, giving a wide border. So that the vellum flowers would have a position on the card, I added some ribbon towards the bottom of the mats, before adhering the whole piece to the front of the card base.
Using both snail and mini dimensionals, I added the coloured vellum pieces close to the ribbon. The final look is exactly what I was hoping for. Soft subtle and beautiful! I am sure whoever gets this card will love it, and hope you do too. Why not give it a try. Obviously it would be great if you did a full copy of this card, but why not try similar products for a slightly different look.
