Hello everyone! Bonnie here from BONNIECAROLLEE Makes Cards. In the the midst of the hustle, bustle and cold as we make our way to Christmas, here is a pretty card to remind us of the promise of Spring … and to breathe!  Today’s card features inlay work, Slim Line Rainbow,  providing a backdrop for a flower spray and further emphasizing the dimension of the Layering Flora: BLOOMING BLOSSOMS. A video tutorial is available. 

  • Several flowers were cut from Bristol Smooth card stock.
  • Slim Line Rainbow was also cut from a piece of oversized Bristol Smooth.
  • To colour both the flowers and light rays for the rainbow quickly and easily, Bristol Smooth card stock was sprayed with Distress Mica Stains. 
  • The light rays for the rainbow were inlaid. The over sized card stock was cut with the second largest die from 5x7 Double Stitched Layering Rectangles. This panel was adhered to black card stock cut with the largest die from this set and mounted on a 5” x 7” card base. 

  • Working with a variety of distress oxide inks, Bristol smooth card stock was ‘ink smooshed’ using Chipped Sapphire, Bundled Sage and Rustic Wilderness. The mid sized skeleton detail leaf die from More Ash Leaves and the HELLO sentiment from 5x7 Double Stitched Layering Rectangles were used to cut this card stock.
  • The flowers were shaped simply with McGill’s ball tool and molding mat.  Two flowers were adhered together offsetting the petals.  The centres were finished off with gold prills.
  • The HELLO sentiment was stacked on black foam tape and adhered to the card about 2/3 down from the top of the panel.
  • The flowers, accented with a few leaves, were arranged beginning at the upper, left hand  and working diagonally to the bottom right corner. The flower spray was highlighted with green sequins from the Bears in the Forest Sequin Mix Plus
