“Wildflowers Sent With Love” Card

Afternoon everyone.  I hope that you are well.  Today, I just wanted to share with you a quick card using the trusty Distress Oxides and some dies from Tim Holtz.


To make this card I have used:


Distress Oxides – Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick and Broken China

Mini Blending tool

“Wildflowers” dies; Tim Holtz

“Sentiments” stamp set; Hunkydory

Black card – 14 x 14cm panel

White linen card – 13.6 x 13.6cm panel

6 x 6 inch white card blank

“Star Night” embossing powder; Be-creative

Versamark ink pad

“Gold” Wink of Stella pen

“Robin’s Egg” Liquid Pearls; Ranger


Step 1

Mask off an area on the white linen cardstock, using some low-tack tape.  Apply the distress oxides using the blending tool, working from the darkest colour (Faded Jeans) down to the lightest “Broken China”.  Once applied, remove the tape.


Step 2

Die cut the 3 of the wildflowers from the Tim Holtz die set on black card.  Arrange so that they cover the inked panel and overhang the edges and glue down.


Step 3

Heat emboss the sentiment using Versamark and the Star Night embossing powder in the top right corner.


Step 4

Add some of the gold Wink of Stella pen over the die cut flowers and around the edges of the black card panel as well.


Step 5

Mat and layer the decorative panel onto the black panel and then onto the card front.  IF you want more dimension to your card, this can always be done using foam tape.


Step 6

Finishing touch with some of the Liquid Pearls in the top left and bottom right of the card.
