For our projects today, the design team is showcasing the Peony Blooms stamp set and coordinating dies. I absolutely LOVE this stamp set!
To start, I positioned the biggest peony die in the middle of my 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 piece of Bristol smooth white card stock. I wanted to do a partial die-cutting on this card stock to make the flowers stand out. To achieve this, I used my small cutting plate to partially die-cut the flowers.
I put the card stock onto my stamping tool and lined-up the stamp on top of the partially die-cut piece and stamped the image with memento tuxedo black ink.
I cut the edges to create the border on the partially die-cut flowers using my paper trimmer.
I used the Postage Die from the new Framework die set to create an embossed impression on my die-cut piece. I also did the same technique with the patterned paper to make everything cohesive. I colored the image with my Copic markers, and I also used my Prisma Color Pencils to add some highlights to the flowers.
I adhered the embossed patterned paper onto my card base. I used foam adhesive to the foreground to create some dimension, and adhered it to the card. To finish the design, I stamped the sentiment with my Versafine Onyx Black ink. Here’s the card:
I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out! Here’s a little close-up of the peonies:
