A Quietly Elegant Floral Bouquet

Simon Says Stamp | Just A Note Release

Hi there!

I’ve been doing a lot of fun and bright cards lately, so I thought I’d switch things up today with a quietly elegant floral card.  This is a super easy card to make and packs a lot of impact.  I hope you love it as much as I do!

I made this card by embossing the Darcy Bouquet embossing folder on pale pink cardstock, then lightly going over the top of it with white pigment ink to highlight the raised images.  Then, I just added a sentiment, a few sparkly gems and Ta Da! A super sweet card that could really be used for any occasion just by switching up the sentiment and/or the color of the cardstock you used.

A few ideas you could try:

  • Use a darker color cardstock for even more impact.
  • Use gold or silver (or other color) pigment ink for additional glam.
  • Use a dye ink a little darker than your cardstock for a tone-on-tone effect.
  • Any of the above with a different sentiment (try a sympathy card, an “I’m Sorry”, a thank you, or even a birthday).

I hope you like this card and that you’ll try out this simple technique and let me know in the comments how you did!

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

    Beautiful card, Jean. A great reminder to let our embossing folders be center stage.

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
