Flowing Flowers Trio

I focused a class last week on the Flowing Flowers Stamp Set.  I shared one of the cards from the class last Tuesday.  They are photoed right below.  That card was inspired by a card on page 14 in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  I thought for today's Monday Montage Blog Hop I would share the other two cards from my class.  I used the same color palette, the Forever Flourishing Dies, and some scraps of black and white DSP for the trio of cards.

This card didn't turn out anything like what I had in my mind.  I do like this window style card that gives a peek to what's inside.  To cut the frames I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  For the leaves I used a couple different dies from the Forever Flourishing set.  One bunch of leaves is Polished Pink Shimmer Vellum (retired) and the other is Orchid Oasis Glimmer Paper.

I especially love the long banner die that bridges across the frame/window and backs the large floral bloom.  A bit of heat embossing makes the white greeting pop on the Crushed Curry Cardstock.

For this card you can see I focused on mixing Coastal Cabana with Orchid Oasis and a little bit of black and white.  What I really like on this one is how the Iridescent Rhinestones take on the purple-blue hue of the paper.

This card started as a 5 1/2" x 11" card base.  Along the 11" edge I scored at 3 3/8" from each end.  Then I used one of the dies from Basic Borders set to cut a pierced envelope style edge.  Behind that I glued a quarter sheet of Orchid Oasis that I dry embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Folder.

Here's a look inside when the card is fully open.
