Your Kindness Means So Much

Hi Pinkfresh Studio friends!

Today I am over on the Pinkfresh Studio blog sharing a floaty, pretty in pink floral card that I designed using the new Never Give Up Press Plate. Press plates are starting to replace hot foil plates as they can have a dual purpose and they foil beautifully.

For my design I used the Never Give Up Press Plate twice. First, I used white foil on vellum and then foiled the plate again with champagne foil on white cardstock.

With the coordinating stencils, I ink blended very lightly with Ballet Slipper and Sparkling Rose for the flowers. And for the leaves, I used Sage and Lush Forest

After die cutting them out, I set them aside so I could work on the background.

I had some woodgrain cardstock panels in my stash. Therefore, I decided to use one for my card. The white was too stark, so I grabbed the Ballet Slipper dye ink and dragged the ink pad down over the woodgrain. This was very satisfying!! 

Then, using the Nested Rectangles Hot Foil I cut out a frame with the coordinating dies. This gave me an anchor for my florals and broke up the woodgrain back panel. 

I popped all of this up on foam squares to give it some lift. 

To finish, I decided to use one of the sentiments from the Favorite Things Press Plate set that was released last December. I had a champagne foiled sentiment all ready to go. I added black cardstock layers onto the back of this sentiment  and that lifted it just enough from the florals. Obviously, some highlights were needed plus some bling and the Blush Glitter Drops were a beautiful addition.

Well friends, that's all from me today but make sure you keep an eye out for the reel over on Instagram @pinkfreshstudio and @cherylespiecreates
