Bloom – Scrapbook.com

Hi friends! I wanted to share some spring inspiration from Scrapbook.com! This is my first post as a new Creative Team Member so I’m excited to share πŸ™‚

It’s National Craft Month and to celebrate Scrapbook.com is having a sale on cardmaking supplies, products with a floral theme, and products with a spring theme. As a bonus for a limited time while supplies last, they are offering the Floral Smooth Cardstock paper pack as a freebie! Read all the details on the Scrapbook.com website. The cardstock is a good weight for die cutting and layering and the colors are beautiful for spring or floral cards. Let’s dive into how I made my card!

I started by adding double sided adhesive to a piece of dark peach cardstock from the Floral paper pack. I die cut the panel with the Rose Bloom die and carefully adhered it to the pre-folded Neenah slimline card base. I don’t have the Magic Mat yet, so I did a couple passes through my die cut machine to ensure I had a clean cut. I highly recommend taping the die down well because if the die shifts slightly in between passes, it will ruin the pattern.

Once I had the outline down, I die cut three more panels of cardstock out of varying colors – light peach, pink, and dark pink. I wanted to in-lay different color flowers for variety. I worked color by color, flower by flower, carefully in-laying the pieces of cardstock. While easy, this part took the longest, but I enjoyed it! It was like working on a card-sized puzzle.

After I finished in-laying all of the pieces, I die cut the outline once more from dark peach cardstock and layered it on top for slightly more dimension and to clean up any slight tears from the in-laying process. I added the Pops of color to the flower centers for more texture and color.

For the sentiment, I die cut the word ‘bloom’ from the Bold Basic Alpha die four times from heavyweight white cardstock. I die cut the word once more time from cream colored, textured cardstock and offset the letters a bit. For the sub-sentiment, I gold heat embossed a sentiment from the Hero Arts Empowerment stamp set on dark pink cardstock. It reads “be your TRUE self”. I adhered the sentiments with liquid glue, and that’s it!

Hope you found some inspiration in this spring themed card with the great freebie Scrapbook.com is offering this week. Happy crafting!!
