Join us in celebrating by following along on our Instahop. We will be giving away one of each of the newly released layered floral dies – one prize on each stop of the hop. I used the Pimpernel Contour Layers set for my card, and that is the set that will be awarded on my stop!

Making the Card
I started my card design by dry embossing the Flora Plate Layer C die onto a panel of teal card stock. I then inked up part of the panel with some darker teal ink in order to create a glow in the center. I splattered the panel with gold paint and then adhered it to a parchment colored A2 card base.
I used the Pimpernel die to cut the two main parts of the flower from a light orange card stock. I inked the top layer with a darker orange ink and then inked the edges of the bottom layer with white pigment ink to create a bit more contrast. I used gold foil card stock for the small middle piece of the flower, the top layer of the leaves, and the “hello” sentiment. To give the flowers even more dimension, I used a stylus tool and also popped them up on foam tape.
I’m really loving the look of florals on a dark background lately. I think it’s so dramatic looking. Make sure to follow along on the Instahop, and good luck! Thank you so much for joining me, and I’ll see you next time!
Wishing you all a crafty day,
