Floral Kindness



Hi crafty friends!

Today I have a pretty card that exudes colour and kindness.

I think Pinkfresh Studio do sentiments so well. When I saw the Favourite Things Sentiments Press Plates released recently, along with some of the new floral die cut sets-I knew I wanted to pair them up. 



I have the privilege of having a number of very close friends who I have known for a very long time. Some live close, some live far away. Connection is everything. I sometimes send real flowers to those I care about, but sending a card doesn't die and fade away like flowers do. That reflection is what inspired my card for you today.



Let's see how this card design came together.

First, I die cut lots of Sweet Blossoms from white cardstock. Then, I laid them out on a grip mat and proceeded to ink blend using the fab Pinkfresh Studio Ink Blending Brushes. I used a mix of Ballet Slipper, Mulberry Blush and Berrylicious for the flowers. For the leaves I used a mix of Sage, Eucalyptus, Evergreen and Lush Forest. For the centres I ink blended in Marigold and added some black dots. 



Do you see a bit of sparkle going on too? Well, I also die cut Sweet Blossoms from Pinkfresh Studio's Champagne Glitter Cardstock. 

For that bold background, I used strips of masking tape and then just ink blended around it with Sage and Begonia....love it!! I added some gold splatters too just to tie in the glitter cardstock.



To bring this card together I die cut the ribbon strips from the Wrap Around Elements in gold cardstock. Taking my time, I arranged the florals and popped them up with foam dots. To finish, I add that wonderful Kindness press plate sentiment. 


I think this card would be appreciated just as much as a bouquet of flowers, don't you?
