Hello and welcome! Seeka here today sharing a card featuring the Sprouting Crocus Contour Layers die set.
I started off by creating seven crocuses in shades of purple and blue cardstock (some nice options are available in the Ocean Blue and Twilight Purple 6×6 paper packs). I used light purple and blue cardstock for the flowers’ centers, and then used a small blending brush to ink blend a bit of darker purple and darker blue inks towards the bases of those pieces. The result is a bit of shading and dimension at the base of the inner petals of each flower. Next, I cut the leaves from green cardstock and then used glue to adhere the pieces of each flower together.
For the background, I used the Pinpoint Radial Plate to cut a piece of white cardstock. Then I used a circle die from my stash to cut out a window from the panel. Next, I blended an aqua ink over a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of white cardstock, concentrating the color towards the bottom of the panel and letting it fade up towards the top. Using foam tape, I adhered the window panel to the aqua panel.
To finish the card, I tucked the blooms into the window and then used foam tape to hold them in place. I added a small sentiment from my stash and then glued the card front to a top-folding card base.
Thank you so much for visiting!
