Avery Elle Floral Bouquet Card

Hi guys! Today I am sharing a card I made with the Avery Elle Floral Bouquet stamps and dies. The flowers are so pretty and can be colored in with your favorite coloring medium.

Today I colored my flowers in with Copic markers and I’m looking forward to making another card with watercolors. If you’re not into coloring — no problem these flowers would look great stamped and left uncolored too!

To begin my card I stamped the flower images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in with Copic marker. I used a white gel pen to highlight the center of the flowers and I cut them out with the coordinating dies.

COPIC COLORS: B63, B66, BV02, RV04, V17, YG03, YG05, YG17

Using my MISTI, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of 80# white cardstock and mounted it on a green cardstock mat layer.  The MISTI helps me stamp the sentiment in exactly the right place and if I don’t get a perfect image the first time I can just stamp it again right over the original image.

I placed the large flower bouquet on my card front overlapping the top and left edge and trimmed off the excess. I used these excess pieces on the bottom and right edge of the card. I really like how this makes it look like the flowers are growing in from the sides.

I added an individual flower and leaf above the sentiment and then attached the card front to an A2 110# white card base. I used a few sequins for a bit of sparkle and to tie all of the elements together.

TIP: I like to use 100# or 110# cardstock for the base of my cards and 80# (if available) for the layers. The heavier cardstock base is nice and sturdy and using a lighter weight for the layers prevents the card from becoming too bulky.
