Rare and Beautiful

Rare and Beautiful

Hello and welcome! It's Kelly here today! I'm sharing a bold floral card using some of my new favorites! I'm in a "black background" phase right now, so I had fun creating this particular card with black cardstock and white embossing powder paired with the stamping/stenciling!
To begin, I used the Floral Bunch Die to die cut the base for the stamping/stenciling. From there, I stamped the flowers using the Floral Bunch stamp set and then used the coordinating Floral Bunch layering stencil set to bring this beautiful floral image to life. I chose Ballet Slipper, Sparkling Rose, and Raspberry Bliss ink for the main flower image and Lavender and Regal Kiss for the purple flowers. The leaves are inked with Grassy Knoll and Emerald ink for this bright, bold design!
Once I had the flower piece complete, I got to work on the background using the fabulous Diamond Tiles Cling Rubber Stamp. I heat embossed it in white onto the black cardstock for a dramatic, bold look. I also die cut the Stitched Scallop Rectangles using the same black cardstock and layered it over the heat embossed panel using foam squares. From there, I added the flowers using additional foam squares. Now, please note, this is one large image, but I strategically cut it to give me the split piece to maximize my efforts and use this floral cluster in a different way!
I'm currently obsessed with this particular sentiment from the Rare and Beautiful stamp set so I heat embossed it as well and added it over the top of the panel using additional foam squares. I added a few jewels as well for some sparkle and shine! The entire panel is layered onto a top folding A2 card base using foam squares. Thanks for joining me today!

I always love the use of diamond and plaid backgrounds with the floral bunches, but the black and white boldness gives this card a wonderful “luscious-ness”

I can’t pick a favorite they are all amazing. If I had to say I love the frames and the stitched oval and circles. Wonderful release.
