Free Project: Inked Peonies
We hope you've found yourself at this project after enjoying the previous two cards in your April issue of Making Cards & Papercraft magazine! Create this inked beauty by using the brand-new Nature's Garden Peony Collection from our friends at Crafter's Companion!
Jessica Meyer has used the peony theme of the collection to create a card that is stamped and coloured with Distress inkpads.
Here's a reminder of the gorgeous cards in the April issue...
What do I need?
Baby Pink Centura card
Beautiful clear acrylic stamp
Corner Bloom metal die & acrylic stamp set
Trellis Frame metal die from the Nature’s Garden Peony Collection by Crafter’s Companion
Vellum or parchment
Silver embossing powder
Evergreen Bough, Peeled Paint, Victorian Velvet, Spun Sugar & Seedless Preserves Distress inkpads
Gray Flannel Memento inkpad
Pink adhesive pearls
How do I make it?
1 Create a 14.5cm square Baby Pink card blank with the fold at the top. Round the top left and bottom right corners.
2 Cut white card to 13.5cm square and round the coordinating corners. Stamp patches of the trellis, running over the rounded corners, using Spun Sugar ink. Also stamp in the centre of the panel.
3 Die-cut and emboss the middle of the three trellis dies to make a delicate frame from Baby Pink card. Attach to the centre of the panel.
4 Die-cut two of the corner bloom shapes. Stamp the corner stamp on the two die-cuts with Gray Flannel ink. Colour with Distress inkpads and when dry attach around the frame with foam pads.
5 Cut an 18x2.5cm strip of vellum and stamp and heat emboss the sentiment on the right. Wrap around the bottom of the panel, securing the ends at the back, and attach the panel to the card front.
6 Finish by adding pink pearls randomly around the card front.
