Now over to my card. It’s ages since I last did an easel and it was ages since I last used my favorite flower of all times – The Flora Grande 1. I adore this flower, and the sheer size of the biggest one in the set makes it perfect as a 4 x 4 card base.

Thank God...1

Supplies: Rubber Stamps: Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3375 Flora Grande 1 PreCut Set, HCPC 3374 Flora Grande 2 PreCut Set, HCPC 3392 Bella Rose House PreCut Set and HCPC 3363 Inspire Me Sentiments PreCut Set. Ink: Versa Fine Onyx Black. Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper. Paper: Crate Papers. Dies: Heartfelt Creations Decorative Layered Basket Die, Spellbinders Fancy Tags 2. Embellishments: Pearls from Prima.

Here is a close up. The wings are stamped, heat embossed and cut out from vellum.

Thank God 2

I’m really happy about how this little card came out. A bit chocked by all the pink maybe, but the flower worked well as a base for the card. I stamped and heat embossed the largest Flora Grande and cut out. I used it as template for the inside piece before gluing it down on black cardstock and cut out. Then I used that piece as template for the card base. Done. :)

And now it’s about time to hop over to Linda to check out her amazing creation. Don’t forget to leave a comment to increase your chance to win!

Thanks for stopping by!
