Floral Essence Card for PCC 346

Happy Wednesday, Friends! It has been a little while since I've been able to participate as part of the Paper Craft Crew Design Team, so I am extra happy to be back this week! Today I am using the brand new Floral Essence Stamp Set and coordinating Perennial Flower Punch (available as a Bundle to save you 10%!).

This weeks challenge was a colour challenge, which is always a great one to try. I feel like colour challenges can really push you out of your comfort zone and steer you in an entirely different direction than one you would normally do. This is true in my case because I normally stick to pinks, purples, and teals when it comes to floral cards, but this time I used three colours from the colour challenge. This includes Daffodil Delight (I am fresh out of Pineapple Punch Cardstock), Blueberry Bushel, and a bright green. Full challenge details are below.

For today's card I used the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder for the bottom layer of Daffodil Delight Cardstock and used a Blender Pen and Blueberry Bushel Ink to add the touch of blue to the floral background.

The 3D flower on the front of the card was made using Vellum Cardstock. I stamped the outline in StayzOn Ink and coloured in the flowers with the Blender Pen and Blueberry Bushel Ink.

I used the Leaf Punch that also coordinates with the Floral Essence Stamp Step, to punch out three bright green leaves and three vellum leaves that I used to fill in around the flower and then popped the flower up on a Stampin' Dimensional for extra dimension.

Oh, and let's not forget the cute Perennial Essence Floral Centres!
