Simple Cards with Ephemera and Kaylee

Hello Everyone, Welcome to my next project for Couture Creations using the ‘Blooming Friendship’ Ephemera Set.

This collection has some lovely delicate blues and rich deep red florals. The collection name says it all, flowers are like friends – you can never have too many. I thought I would try to make a couple of cards mainly using the ‘Ephemera’ Die-cut set because you don’t need a lot of tools to make something nice with this pack.

I started by sifting through the pack and picking out pieces that would look nice together. I thought I would do a ‘blue’ and ‘red’ card.

There are lots of elements – I had to restrain myself with only choosing a few. (The pieces on the right was for a card that I didn’t add to this post). I inked all the edges with blue dye ink.

On the blue cardstock, I created some interest to the background by partially stamping the ‘crackle’ stamp with 3 of the ‘Stayz’ Alcohol Inks. These inks have a lovely sheen/shine to them – very nice!

I selected and cut out one of the panels from page 6A of the Paper collection pad. I trimmed cardstock for a mat and a label, inked all the edges with brown dye ink and glued cardboard behind them. I added foam squares behind the sentiment. Arranged all the pieces and glued them in place.

I couldn’t resist adding a touch of glitter to each of them. So I put a drop into the centres of the sequences, on the stamens, on the edges of the red flower petals and on the label edge. The finished cards – the same collection with 2 quite different colours.
