The Bold Flowers set from Simon Says Stamp has lots of my favourite flower and leaf shapes in a lovely clean style, and so I dug out a palette of blue/green/grey inks and got stamping! I used Lake Shores for the blue flowers, Smoke, Dusty Sage and Laurel Green for the leaves, Cobblestone for the stems to the small yellow Duckling flowers and then die cut all the elements with the matching Bold Flowers dies. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.
I played around with various bouquet and wreath arrangments before deciding on this diagonal sentiment panel with the florals blooming along the diagonal line. As a subtle background, I stamped the Reverse Polka Background stamp in Fog ink on white card and trimmed to slightly smaller than an A2 card base.
I foam mounted the panel to a white card base and then attached the flowers with more foam adhesive. For the sentiment panel, I wanted a matching colour and also to keep the tones of the card soft and neutral. So I blended Smoke ink into a piece of white card and then trimmed at a diagonal. I added this diagonal piece with foam adhesive over the bottom right of the card front. I then die cut a Big Thanks die from white card and foam mounted that to mirror the diagonal line.
I also blended Dusty Sage ink into a scrap of card, dried it thoroughly and then stamped a coordinating sentiment from the Big Thanks Words set in clear embossing ink and white heat embossed before trimming to a skinny banner, and foam mounting underneath the die cut sentiment.
