Hi everyone! Happy Monday! My wish for you is a wonderful week coming up! Today is my post day on the a2z Scrapbooking blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project using the Hero Arts Poetic Petals Digital Kit and Say It In Pieces Digital Greetings. I created a set of four CAS note cards, each with a different flower and sentiment on the front and blank inside. These are large, at 5.5″ square, so there’s lots of room inside to write a message. And OMGosh, these flowers are gorgeous!
I put a fun little twist on these – that’s the beauty of working with digital images! I created a background of sentiments on which to print the flowers. I created one snippet of the Say It In Pieces Digital Greetings preview sheet, duplicated it three more times and printed the block of four snippets on a sheet of white cardstock.
I put the sentiments sheet back into the printer and printed the flowers right over top of the sentiments.
I fussy cut each flower, heat set it and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers. I ran each flower through my Creative Station to put adhesive on the back and adhered it to a piece of vanilla cardstock layered on gold mirror cardstock. For a little texture, I embossed a different color cardstock for each card which I layered on a piece of cardstock matching the color of the flower.
I chose four different sentiments which I printed on vanilla cardstock, cut into flags and layered on the gold mirror cardstock. I adhered the pieces to the card bases and finished each card with pearls. I thoroughly enjoyed making these and I’m so tickled with how they turned out! Here is a close-up of each card:
