Hello! Today I am sharing a beautiful floral card featuring a monochromatic color palette. Purple is a color that has grown on me through the years and is still not one I use frequently, but, I love how this card turned out and I think it will inspire me to create with purples more often. This is also one of those cards that I say will look good in every color! Keep reading to learn how I made this card and the products I used.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Gorgeous Grape cardstock. Using the Honey Bee Stamps Watercolor Lines Cover Plate die, I cut the first layer from Gorgeous Grape cardstock. Underneath the frame I used a piece of Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes paper. On a separate sheet of Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock, I stamped the color layering iris bulbs in Sweet Sugarplum (retired), Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather inks. I stamped the color layering leaves in Old Olive and Garden Green ink. Using the coordinating dies, I die cut both the flowers and leaves. I adhered the flowers to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added height. Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink on a sheet of white cardstock and die cut it using an oval framelit.
Here is the Color Layering Iris set from Hero Arts that I used to create this card:
