Hi friends! Happy new week!! It’s Keiko from Happy Tree Studio and I have this pretty Hydrangea card to share with you! I have to admit that I am not a floral person. I LOVE when people make these elegant floral card, but I somehow not able to come up with such a design. I guess they are not my style. However, I just love this new Hydrangea die so much I had to make an another card with them! Apart from the stamped sentiment, this is all die cut card so pretty easy to make!
To die cut the two shades of blue hydrangea flowers and those leaves, I used the new Team Tie-Dye paper pad. This paper pad is filled with beautiful inky papers designed by the design team and they are not only prefect for backgrounds but also for die cutting out the florals. The pale pink Hydrangeas are die cut from the paper in the Log Cabin pad. The leaves are from Spring Bouquets die and the Magnolias are from Country Christmas Wreath dies (I cut them from watercolor card stock and colored them with Copic markers). The vase is actually a honey jar from Honey Jar Paper Piecing die. I used watercolor card stock to die cut and inked the edges with gray ink.
The sentiment is from Inside:Birthday stamp set and I white heat embossed on dark pink card stock and die cut it out using the coordinating die. The “hello” word is from Bitty Buzzwords set and was die cut four times from white card stock and once from silver glitter card stock. Because I am using foam tapes to adhere the vase (two layers in the middle and one layer on the sides), I layered the white hello die cut on the back of the glitter one so it will lay flat on the card on top of the vase (“h” has no white die cut on the back, “e” has one, “l” has three and “lo” has all four layers of white die cut).
For the background, I used Quatrefoil A2 Cover die (both Base and Top). I cut the base from pale blue and the top from white card stock. I glued the two together using the precision tip glue and adhered all the elements with foam tapes. TIP: The Hydrangea is pretty large for this design, so I cut them apart and layered on top of each other.
To finish off the card, I added some clear gem stones to the Hydrangea centers and Glossy Accents and glitter to the Magnolia centers.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful week!!
