The Card Concept #49: For Your Birthday Floral Card

Hello, Kraftie Friends!!!

Welcome to a new challenge at The Card Concept - {Floral Radiance}
The team is divided into the different styles and each designer explains how they were inspired by the challenge!  So come and join us and try your hand at a brand new "style" of card making or work in your comfort zone, it is totally up to you!

Feel free to use any of the styles of our team or better yet, share you own style by combining one or more of the styles. We want you to have fun and make a card in a style that you feel good about!

The styles are explained HERE.

Here's my mixed media card:


1. I used overlay stencils, distress inks and Gelatos on watercolor paper for the background.
2. I cut a honeycomb overlay with Cricut and adhered on background paper (I used a Xyron machine as adhesive).
3. I cut a doily with Cricut and adhered on card.
4. I stamped the milk jar and ink smooshed it with All-Purpose Inks. After it dried, I stamped the stems.
5. I stamped the flowers and leaves, colored them with alcohol-based markers and cut them out.
6. I stamped the peony, outlined it with Copic marker and added color with a blender tool/\.
7. Arange the flowers and adhere them on card. I adhered the peony with foam tape.
8. Finally, I added a butterfly.

Now, start creating and link your projects HERE!
