Runway Inspired Challenge #45 - Design Team

Hello Everyone!

I have some exciting news to share with you today. I am so honored that 
I will be joining the Design Team at the
I want to say a Big THANK You to Jennifer Rzasa  for asking me be part of these Amazing ladies :).

Without further ado here is my take on this Fabulous inspiration photo.

This is just a quick tutorial on how I die-cut my floating flower.

1.) I die-cut the acrylic cardstock using the Gorgeous Gardenia Background  & 
2.) But before I die-cut the gardenia outline I first adhere a double sided tape 
on my cardstock so that I will not have a hard time adhering 
the pieces of the flower later on.

3.) After I die-cut using the Gorgeous Gardenia outline
4.) I adhere the outline to my acrylic background.

5.) This is when all my little pieces already all adhere on my acrylic background.
6.) Now I can now remove my outline.


7. This is when the outline is all gone and ready for copic coloring :)


To assemble my card.....
I first stamp my stripes using one of the Nina's stamp collection from Avery Elle: Texture Tiles Be Cool on my white cardstock. I then die-cut my Gorgeous Gardenia Background using an acrylic cardstock. I used it as a base to attached the pieces of the Gorgeous Gardenia Outline. Once all my flower piece are all adhere on my acrylic gardenia background, then the outline is removed, and its ready for copic coloring.

For sentiment I used Papertrey Ink: Pedal Pusher for the"thank" and for the "you" I die-cut
the Wonderful Words Die: Thank you from Papertrey Ink after embossing it with silver embossing powder.
As for the stripes at the bottom I used the Tiles be Cool, I just covered it with a washi and
inked it up with different color ink pads, took me 5 minutes to create that colorful stripes.

To make it more a little dramatic I added a clear foam tape so that it will not show on my 
pretty flower and to make flower looks like its floating.

Here's another look of the card.

I hope I have inspired you!
