Floral Thank You ‘Vintaged’

I made a few full size card versions of Monday’s Facebook Live mini 3″ x 3″ cards with the floral images from the Free As A Bird stamp set but had a bit of an accident with one – I smudged some Rococo Rose ink on the Whisper White cs card front. So I broke out a sponge dauber and went all in with the ink – and ‘vintaged’ up the card front.

Start with a Rococo Rose cs card base. Cut the Pretty Peacock cs and Whisper White cs panels. Glue the Pretty Peacock cs panel to the card base. Stamp the large circle from the the Swirly Frames stamp set in the center of the Whisper White cs front panel in Pretty Peacock ink. Stamp the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set on the lower right corner in Pretty Peacock ink. Stamp the smaller flower image from the Free As A Bird stamp set around the stamped circle in Rococo Rose ink.

Stamp the larger flower image (8 times) from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Rococo Rose ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cs. Color the flowers with a Light Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blend and then add Wink of Stella for sparkle. Use Paper Snips to fussy cut out the flowers.

Stamp the leaf out line image (6 times) from the To A Wild Rose stamp set on a scrap piece of Whisper White cs in Pretty Peacock ink. Stamp the less bold inside leaf image from the To A Wild Rose stamp set in 2nd generation Pretty Peacock ink (stamped off) to color in the stamped leaf outline. Die cut out the double stamped leaves with the Wild Rose dies.

Glue the leaves to the card front using the stamped circle and flowers as a guide. Add the fussy cut flowers to the the card front overlapping the leaves in the center with glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. Use a Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blend to color Basic Rhinestone jewels and then add them to the card front around the flowers.

This is where I smudged the card front. Use a sponge dauber to add Rococo Rose ink to the card front – especially around the edges. Lightly sponge over top of the flowers and leaves (as they are already attached to the card front – add a bit of color to dirty the white). Run the inside blade edge of the Paper Snips against the edges of the sponged Whisper White cs card front to rough them. Use the Bone Folder to curl the edges of the card front. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the card front to the Pretty Peacock cs on the card base – place the Stampin’ Dimensionals in the corners slightly inset so the curled and roughed corners lift away from the card front.

Don’t forget to add a Whisper White cs inside panel. I lightly sponged Rococo Rose ink to the edges of the inside panel. I also stamped the sentiment and flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set to the inside panel and on the back of the card to pull the theme through.
