Creating a Floral Border

If you’ve not got the Because stamp set from Sunshine & Bee designs, then this is the time to get it. Here I’m showing you how to use the smaller stamps within the set to create a floral border and that you can create more than wreath cards using this stamp set. It is so easy to do and I’m showing you how to add colour quickly. So let’s get creating!

Creating a floral border

creating the floral elements

To start off, stamp the single flowers, both big and small from the Because stamp set, onto Innocent Pink and Lovely Lavender Gina K cardstock in WOW! Clear Ultra Slow drying embossing ink. Repeat this by stamping the leaves in Kwiwi and Palm Hero Hues Cardstock and cover all images in Opaque Bright white WOW! embossing powder. 

Next, heat set the flowers and leaves with your heat gun. Before we fussy cut these out, we can add a little colour to create shading – adding depth and dimension to your stamped images. 

For the flowers, use a small blending brush to ink blend Pink Champagne onto the pink flowers and Sugared Lavender onto the lilac flowers – these inks are from Catherine Pooler Designs. In addition, ink blend Eucalyptus and Spruce ink onto the base of the leaves to add shading. Remember to use a clean cloth to buff off the ink over the embossing powder to brighten the embossing up. 

creating the backgrounds

After the images are fussy cut-out, it is time to create the backgrounds. Stamp the Altenew Pinstripe background stamp onto Soft Stone Gina K cardstock in embossing ink and cover with a White pearl WOW! embossing powder. In addition, repeat stamping this background stamp onto white card in Soft Granite ink from Hero Arts.

Trim both backgrounds down to 1/2″ smaller than a card base, as well as trimming down each end at an angle to create more interest to the card design. Foam mount these onto a card base made out of either white of soft stone cardstock. 

building up the floral border

To create a floral border, use a variety of depths of foam adhesive squares and liquid glue to adhere the flowers and leaves along the angled edge of the card panel. For a professional look, ensure you overlap or tuck in leaves and flowers within one another.

Next, add a small sentiment strip to the front of the card.  Lastly use a selection of sequins and liquid glue to embellish the floral border for added shine and interest.
