Fifth Avenue Floral Card Tutorial


My friend, Joni, made a beautiful card that inspired me to make this version using three retiring colors, Cameo Coral, Ruby Red and Mellow Moss.

Supplies
Soft Suede Cardstock: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Cameo Coral Cardstock: 5 1/2" x 2"
Ruby Red Cardstock: 5 1/2" x 1 5/8"
Very Vanilla Cardstock: 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"
Mellow Moss Cardstock: 1 flower using the 5-petal flower punch
Cameo Coral Cardstock: 1 medium heart using the Heart to Heart Punch
Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp Set
Tiny Tags Stamp Set
5-Petal Flower Punch
Heart to Heart Punch
Cameo Coral Classic Ink Pad
Ruby Red Classic Ink Pad
Mellow Moss Classic Ink Pad
Soft Suede Classic Ink Pad
Stampin' Sponges
Versamark Ink Pad
Clear Embossing Powder
Heat Tool
Big Shot
Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder
Ruby Red Watercolor Wonder Crayon
Blender Pen

Step 1
Using versamark ink, stamp the Fifth Avenue Rose on the Very Vanilla cardstock. Apply clear embossing powder and heat.


Step 2
Sponge Cameo Coral over the entire rose.


Step 3 and 4
Using the Ruby Red Watercolor Wonder Crayon, lightly color in the outside edges of the rose petals. Blend in the color with the blender pen. The top of the rose shows where I've used the watercolor crayon. The bottom half of the rose shows what it looks like after I used the blender pen. Tip: To further blend the colors, lightly sponge more Cameo Coral ink over the entire rose.


This is the card that Joni made that inspired me. She sponged Pumpkin Pie over the entire flower and then Rose Red through the center. It makes a beautiful rose.
