Art Gallery Card #1

The Fine Art Floral Suite is just gorgeous!

I stamped the stem from the Art Gallery Stamp Set using Night of Navy Ink and cut it out using the Floral Gallery Dies. I stamped 3 flowers using Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy Inks. I then die cut them out using the Floral Gallery Dies.

For the card front I used the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder to emboss the 3-3/4 X 5 piece of Basic White Card Stock. I then used a Blending Brush to apply a little Coastal Cabana Ink to the raised areas of the card front. I used the same brush and Frost White Shimmer Paint on the card front. I then put a small amount on a large block, dipped the brush in the paint and brushed it on a scrap piece of paper, before applying it to the card front.

Next I adhered the card front to the piece of Coastal Cabana Card Stock. I then tied a piece of Pool Party Sheer Ribbon into a bow around the card.

For the final assembly, I adhered the stem and the flowers to the card front. I used Dimensionals to adhere one of the flowers. I added some Elegant Faceted Gems for sparkle. Finally, I adhered the entire assembly to the Bermuda Bay card base. Don’t forget to stamp your envelope and adhere the liner to the inside of the card.

Tips and Tricks: There is a learning curve to applying the shimmer paint. Be patient. It might take more paint then you realize to cover the whole card front. Wash out the blending brush with warm soapy water!
