Best Wishes | Card

Hi everyone!
I'm back to share a card I made for my DT post at Pretty Paper Studio. I have also shared a step by step tutorial below on how I created it. Here'a look at my card :

Here’s a tutorial on how I created it :

Step 1 : I first started by die-cutting a card panel for my base and then using the Prima Tuberoses Stencil and some texture paste. I did some wet embossing on the panel and I added a hint of color to the texture paste by rubbing in some Mango Smoothie ink from Altenew. 

Step 2 : Once the embossing was dry, I started to stamp and die-cut the elements of my cards. I have used Altenew Doddle Blooms stamp and die set to stamp my flowers and foliage. I used the Tim Holtz Distress Speciality Paper to stamp all my images before die cutting them. 

Step 3 : Once the images  were stamped and die cut, I watercolored them using different shades of Altenew inks along with a waterbrush. I have done some simple watercoloring to my images.

Step 4 : Once my flowers and leaves were ready, I stamped and die-cut a frame using stamp and dies from the Lawn Fawn Flirty Frames set.

Step 5 : Once the frame was stamped and die-cut, I did some fussy cutting in the centre of the frame and cut out the centre part of the frame completely leaving only the outline of the frame. This frame was then placed as the focal in the centre of my card.

Step 6 : Once the frame was adhered to my card,  I started assembling my flowers and leaves around the frame using some foam squares. Then die-cut my sentiment using a word die and the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Cardstock – Nostalgic.  

And this is how the final card looks like.

I hope you like my card. I would love to hear your views regarding it :)
