Flowering Dogwood Step Card

Welcome back.

I have been busy creating for my final Design Team submission for the Heartfelt Creations Design Team and I am happy with what I have created.  I would like to thank all those that took the time to vote for me and all the other semi-finalists and I look forward to seeing who has made it to the final team.

Today I am featuring another card that I have made using the Flowering Dogwood dies and papers again.  This collection really resonated with me and I can’t stop creating with it.  This card could be used for wedding, sympathy and christening card or baptism, and I have left the sentiment off on purpose because of it.

Materials used:

Cardstock – CTMH Colonial White

Paper – Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood, Vellum

Stamps – Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood Flowers, Flowering Dogwood Branches, Flowering Dogwood & Doves

Dies – Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood Flowers, Flowering Dogwood Branches, Flowering Dogwood & Doves, Spellbinders Pop Ups – Happy Days

Inks – Colorbox Frost White, Memento New Sprout, Pistachio,

Embossing Powder – Ranger Bridal Tinsel

Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Shaping kit.

Prills – Minnie Pearls

Spectrum Noir Sparkle Clear Overlay

Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive

Art Glitter Ultrafine Glitter – Crystal

Instructions:

Die cut the pop up base out of the Colonial White Cardstock.  Cut out the patterned pieces from a 6” x 6” patterned panel – I have used the one with the church on the bottom left.  Sponge the edges of the card and the patterned pieces with the New Sprout ink and then adhere the patterned pieces on the card base.

To make the flowers stamp the flowers with the Frost White ink and emboss with the Bridal Tinsel embossing powder.  Sponge the centre of the flowers on the back of the vellum lightly with New Sprout and die cut.  Touch the edges of the flowers with Pistachio ink and shape using the Deluxe Shaping kit.  I have layered the larger flowers and left the smaller ones single.

To make the leaves stamp the leaves with the Frost White ink and emboss with Bridal Tinsel embossing powder.  Sponge the backs of the leaves with Pistachio ink and die cut the leaves with the coordinating die.  Shape with the Deluxe Shaping kit.

Stamp the branch from the Flowering Dogwood Branches set with Frost White ink and emboss with Bridal Tinsel embossing powder.  Sponge on the back with Pistachio ink and die cut.  Shape lightly with the Deluxe Shaping kit.

Die cut a dove from the patterned paper and shape using the Deluxe Shaping kit.

Adhere the flowers and leaves as shown.  The branch has been cut to fit along the top of the card to enable easy folding.  Add the flowers as shown.  Add the dove over the flowers on the right of the card and adhere the flowers around it.

To finish add the prills to the centre of the flowers and paint the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Clear Overlay for some extra shine and shimmer.  Using the Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive add Crystal glitter to the dove.

Happy Crafting

Patricia
