Hello Honey Bee friends, and happy November 1! Today I’m sharing my holiday card that features the beautiful Lovely Layers: Amaryllis from the amazing Holiday Wishes release. Did you know amaryllis come in all shades of reds, pinks and also white? I love the white flowers and decided to use that as inspiration for my card.

I made the card base by using a Detail Blender brush to add Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink around the edges of an A2 panel of dark blue cardstock. Then I die cut the piece with the new Scattered Stars Cover Plate die. I glued it to an A2 top-folding card base.

Next I die cut all of the pieces in the Lovely Layers: Amaryllis from 80# Neenah. ( I will save the other flower pot for another project.) I die cut the amaryllis layers twice more.

I used Copic markers to color all of the pieces. Next is a list of the colors I used.

  • flower pot: R89, R39, R29, R27
  • amaryllis leaves: G28, G43, G24
  • amaryllis petals: G43, G24, YG61, C3, C1, C00
  • amaryllis stamens: G20, Y02
  • amaryllis bulbs: E18, E17, E15

When I finished coloring, I used Bee Creative glue to adhere the layers. Since this was my first time to use the Lovely Layers: Amaryllis, I used the very helpful layering guide found via a link in the product description. Then I arranged the flowers in the pot and adhered them with glue.

Before I adhered the amaryllis and pot to the card, I used a blender brush and Bee Creative Brilliant White pigment ink to add a “glow” on the blue cardstock that would be behind the flowers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Seasonal Sentiments with Clear Embossing ink onto blue cardstock. I added white embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I cut it out with the coordinating Honey Cut.

I added some thin and regular foam dots to the back of the pot of amaryllis to adhere it to the card. The sentiment is adhere with a piece of a foam tape strip on the right half and glue on the left.

At this point I really wanted to add some bling to the card! However, I decided to leave it be. I think my previous card had enough sparkles to last a bit! Haha!

Thanks so very much for stopping by today! I hope your day is filled with crafty fun!
