As promised, I’m continuing with my showcase of Retiring Products this week.
Today’s card features the Botanical Bliss stamp set and the coordinating Botanical Tags dies along with the Tufted 3D embossing folder that are all retiring soon…
I’ve used Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron and Shimmery White for my colour scheme.
My card base is Blushing Bride measuring 21 x 14.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm to create a landscape tent fold. I cut a piece of Shimmery White card to 9.5 x 13.5 cm and embossed it with the Tufted embossing folder.
I used the Botanical Tags dies with Blushing Bride card for the flower (you use 2 dies to cut the shape I’ve used) and Mint Macaron card for the foliage.
I added a watercolour wash of Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride inks onto a piece of Shimmery White card wish Aqua Painters. I added the die cut flower along the join of the 2 colours so that the green only appears near the leaves. I then cut this with a Layering Squares die. I used a larger scalloped square die for the vellum piece.
I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Botanical Bliss set in Mint Macaron ink onto a scrap of Shimmery White card and trimmed it to fit. I added this to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Finally I added 3 pink gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones pack which is also retiring. I added a further piece of Shimmery White card to the inside that I’d stamped with Blushing Bride ink in the corners…
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s card. Remember, if you like the stamps, dies and embossing folder I’ve used then please get them while you can!
