Hi and welcome to. my blog!
Today we're debuting the absolutely gorgeous Hollyhock Garden Collection!
We all love the look of the hollyhock blooms, perfect for creating floral gardenscapes with depth and variation in sizes, adding that unique feature to our flower gardens. Create hollyhock blooms as a focal point, or add extra dimension & elegance to any project by layering multiple blooms together. Short on time? The 3D Hollyhock Garden Mold is your time saving tool, perfect for shaping large batches of flowers all at once. The new Hollyhock Garden collection has all you need to start creating exquisite floral gardenscapes for your next paper crafting project!
This is the first card I created using this beautiful collection!
Instructions: Card size is 5 x 7”. Using the largest Lattice Flourish Gateway die, cut 2x from white cardstock. Add double sided tape to the top of one before cutting. Score the one with the tape right under the tape, fold and adhere the two together to create the card base. Cut Hollyhock Garden Paper sheet 11B 2x using the same die. Adhere one to the card front and one to the inside of the card. You’ll need to trim the top of the inside one to make it fit. Using the third largest Eyelet Frame Gateway die, cut from white cardstock, stamp the sentiment ‘Hope your day is as Special as you are’ from Special Birthday Sentiments Cling Stamp set and a couple of hollyhock flowers using Vibrant Fuchsia Archival ink and adhere to the inside. Using the decorative Lattice Flourish dies, cut from white cardstock, sponge with dries clear adhesive and cover with Rajni Chawla’s crystal clear glitter. When dry, adhere to the card front using dries clear adhesive and adhesive strips.
Stamp the Hollyhock Petals & Leaves on Deluxe Flower Shaping paper using Lovely Lipstick and Leaf green inks, color with the same inks and diecut using the coordinating dies. Color the backs of the flowers, too. Place the flowers and leaves in the Hollyhock Shaping Mold and run through the diecut machine. Pierce the flower centers using the Groove Golf tools and add a yellow stamen to each flower, secure with hot glue. Sponge with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with crystal clear glitter.
