Slimline Floral Card ~ Color Dare #511

Friday means a new Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge. This week we're using a photo as Inspiration for creating with color. Use any color you see in the photo below to create any paper craft you like. Do Not use colors not seen in the photo. Black, White and Gold are Free to use with your other 2 colors. 

I decided on a slimline card because I wanted to sprinkle flowers across the front. I masked off the bottom half of the cardstock (White Daisy) so I could stamp the flowers with the bottoms on the masked portion. It's like they are peeking from behind the paper. The flowers were stamped with Exclusive Inks (Grape, Sage, Nectarine, Shortbread, Pine with the sentiment in Black).  The lighter shade of grape was created with 2nd generation stamping. You ink the stamp, stamp on scrap paper THEN stamp on your project.

Here's a close-up of the sentiment area. The circle was stamped in a special way. In the photo of the stamp set below you can see a circle with the sentiment "to the happy couple". I simply turned the stamp over and used the back of the stamp to get the circle image! After stamping I fussy cut it out and inked the edges by rubbing it on the stamp pad. The circle is popped up a bit with some Thin Foam Tape. The other layers are Pine cardstock and a pretty pattern from the packet seen below.

I added a narrow strip of Gold Glitter paper and some dots of Liquid Pearls (Rose Gold) for a nice accent.
