I have been staring at this Illustrated Faith paper that was included in the April Simon Says Card Kit since it arrived in the mail. It was so pretty; I was having a hard time cutting into it. I finally used it today.
Size: Vertical side fold A2 card
Extra Details: I began this card by stamping the flowers on scrap of white card stock. I tried to use ink colors that matched the patterned paper. I added some black stamping to the centers of the flowers to help it matched the patterned paper more. I fussy cut everything out, leaving a small white border.
I created a grey card base and adhered the patterned paper to the front. I wanted to leave an open space for my sentiment, so I trimmed the patterned paper in create a grey rectangle. I added a small rectangle of velum next, to help my sentiment and flowers stand out.
I stamped the sentiment on the velum and then began layering my flowers. I used small glue dots and dimensional glue dots to adhere the flowers. I’m still not completely happy with my arrangement, but I do like the card overall.
