One Wreath Wonder
For my first card, I used the coordinating stamp, washi, and dies in the IN THE MEADOW collection to die cut a bunch of these beautiful flowers for the front of my card. I love that Pinkfresh has the dies perfectly aligned to the flowers on the washi tape so you can add tape to some cardstock, and then cut them all out with one pass through your die machine. Its a quick way to cut a ton of blooms all at once.
Once I had all the blooms cut out, I decided to arrange them into a semi-wreath on my card front. You can NEVER go wrong with a wreath! They always look gorgeous and they are pretty simple to do! Before I adhered down all my wreath pieces, I stamped the sentiment on my card front. Then, I added some bling with some Pinkfresh gems.
The next collection I decided to work with from this release was the Citrus Blooms. This collection has stencils, stamps, and dies that coordinate. All I had to do was stamp the images, line up the stencils and add color, and then cut them all out at once with the dies. Boom. So simple.
With having a ton of the citrus blooms colored and cut out quickly and easily, I then just added them to my card front. For my first card, I opted for a mini slimline that I first foiled the heart background on. Then, I added strips of cardstock that I weaved together for an interesting touch. Dont worry- it may look intense, but it was super easy to do!
To finish this card, I added the blooms and some more of those gorgeous Pinkfresh gems. I love those sparkly gems!
My last card is sort of a play off my previous mini slimline, only I wanted to do a full slimline version. I used the same colors, blooms, paper weaving technique and foiled heart background, but switched it up just a bit to make it unique. What do you think?
Instead of a light, clear foil I used blue this time. I thought it went well with the blue and yellow theme of the Citrus Blooms.
I added just a touch of paper weaving at the bottom.
And of course, added the blooms and the sentiment (and gems!) to finish it off.
