So the upcoming 2022 January-June Mini Catalog has some gorgeous paper in it! Including this Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper!! Nancy is a fan of bright colors and this DSP definitely embraces every bright color possible.
We started with the Real Red Cardstock for the base of the card and followed the scorelines listed below. We then adhered the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper to the card base and moved on to our piece of Basic White Cardstock. For the Basic White Cardstock, we used our Blending Brushes and ink (Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red) to create a ombre effect. Next, we die cut the Dutch Windmill out of Basic Black Cardstock using the Windmill Fields Dies. What's cool about this card, is the windmill actually moves! To do this, we used a brad to pin the windmill together and adhered everything to the front of the card. We stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Tulips Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Basic White Cardstock and fussy cut it out. For a finishing touch, we added some Brushed Brass Butterflies.
