Card of the Week

This week's card is a cheery flower card perfect for any occasion! This card uses stamps from Stampendous featuring flowers and ladybugs!

The first thing we did was create some grass.  Simply cut a strip of green cardstock to resemble blades of grass.

We stamped the stem stamp using Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink and then coloured in the actual leaves using Copic Markers.

The flower is stamped and then cut out from red cardstock and then ran through the cuttlebug or big shot using the Swiss Dots embossing folder to give it some texture.

We then attached the flower on top of the stamped stem using 3D dots.  The centre is filled with white liquid applique.  When heated up liquid applique will puff up to create a truly unique dimensional element on your card. The last step was stamping 3 ladybugs in black and colouring in the images in red.  We added them to the card so they were crawling on the grass!  Below is the final card.
