Hi, Altenew friends!

Svitlana is here. Today, I want to share a cool (temperature wise, at least) card using the lovely Build-A-Flower: Sakura Blossom. I think, for many, the sakura blossom is one of the symbols of spring. I feel the same way. However, I’m more of a winter person and I like making flowers with a cool or frozen look.

I started with die-cutting of several flowers and leaves out of the Vellum Translucent Paper. In this design, it’s important to start from die-cutting. I didn’t use the very bottom layers of the elements and, without them, it could be tricky to stamp just the middle or top layers and then properly die-cut them. So, I started with die-cutting the die-cuts as a guide or as the bottom layers, if you will.

Next, using the Antique Silver Embossing Powder, I embossed the very top layers of the flowers and the top layers of the leaves. Along with embossing and die-cutting one stamen element, I also dipped the tips of the flower petals into embossing ink and silver embossed them as well.

I cut a panel out of the Pale Gray Cardstock and adhered all the elements to it, forming a floral cluster. And then I silver embossed the sentiment below.

The panel was foam mounted onto a card base made out of the Solar White Cardstock.

I finished off the card by adding several silver confetti.

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day!
