Happy Day Card at Creative Embellishments

Great photo of  Happy Day card. This card uses lots of amazing Creative Embellishments chipboards and was mixed with Heartfelt Creations paper and flowers.

To begin a card I usually start with a base card and envelope. From there I pull papers to size to base.... pull a few things I would like to maybe use together and  then I play around until I get the look I am after. 

I decided to cut the circle paper to fit the amazing frame chipboard./

For this Simple Doily Frame I inked it a blue that was in the paper print.

I am now going to share some of my very own tips used to create the flowers.
So first I stamped and die cut the flowers in different sizes.

I then inked using a finger dauber. (your total option to do what ever combo and colours you like OR  (use coloured cardstock and do no colouring)

Lighting mist the backsdie before shaping... softens the paper for shaping and molding.

You can firmly press into foam.... roll round in small circles... move from outer edges of each petal to centre.

Now flip over and firmly mold centre of layers into deep central valley.

I like to take a few stamens and roll them together .. twist and add a touch of glue to hold this shape.

Put your layers together alternating the petals. Put a hole through centre of the whole flower. Feed the stamen through and adhere with glue to the backside. 

Flowers can be single, double or even multi layered ... your option and mix them up.

With the flowers ready.... now back to the card base and putting things together.

I inked the small sentiment words in a darker brown and the flourish page corner I did white.

Here is a close up of the floral cluster.
