WATERCOLOURED FLORAL BORDER
I’ll keep this description brief today, partly as I’ve promised on social media to get this post up quickly and partly as it is a straightforward card! The Leafy Frames set has a variety of gorgeous frames and border images as well as several individual leaf and flower images. I chose the soft floral rectangular frame and stamped it on cold pressed watercolour card in Antique Linen Distress Ink and watercoloured. I then used Faber Castell pencils to add more depth and a few details.
I lightly splattered around the frame with leftover paint and also a Perfect Pearls solution. Then once dry I die cut with a Wonky Rectangle die.
I stamped a greeting from the Leafy Frames set in clear embossing ink and sprinkled with Antique Gold embossing powder before heat setting. I stamped the coordinating sentiment on a piece of hot pressed card I’d watercoloured to tone with the frame. I white heat embossed this part of the sentiment, then trimmed to a skinny banner and added underneath the gold sentiment with foam tape.
I added the panel to a Neenah Desert Storm card base and then accented with Dragon Scales, Love Potion and Cloud 9 Dream Drops (love the opalescent colours) and also Crystal Gems to finish.
I think this June Card Kit is going to be popular, so if you fancy getting your hands on one, you can find it here.
Many of the card kits sell out fast, so if you would like to guarantee a package each month, then you can sign up for a subscription at the reduced cost of $29.99 per month (plus P&P).
