While I wait for the new release since mail from overseas these days is FOREVER (can you tell I am a patient person?!), I am still playing with these beautiful wildflowers!
I used these fabulous Create a Smile products for my card:
I began my card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base which is just perfect for your standard size envelopes.
The idea for my card comes from a new style of modern block coloring that Yana Smakula has recently been showing in her beautiful cards! I definitely needed to give it a try and love the results!
For the frame, I stamped multiples of two of the leave sets from the Wildflower stamp set, colored just one leave on each in rainbow colors and fussy cut out. To get the best block look, you want to go dark, medium and light in your marker choices and let them dry in between applying so they don’t blend.
Next, I die cut the BEE-DAY twice, once from copic friendly cardstock and the other from black cardstock. I colored the letters in rainbow, of course!, and outlined them in the black to help them pop!
To put it all together, I created my center first and then adding the wildflowers to the edges with foam tape and trimmed the tips off.
This is such a different style of card for me and I enjoyed making something unique and fun! I will definitely be doing this block coloring again!
