Inspiration Station – Reverse Confetti

Hi friends! I’m back with more inspiration using Reverse Confetti products. While browsing art on Instagram, I came across this beautiful, vintage jewelry box. The artist painted flowers and dots all over the box making something old look brand new again. I loved it, and thought it would be perfect inspiration for a card!

To start, I die cut the Floral Chain Confetti Cuts four times from white cardstock, and once from rose gold foil cardstock. I did not have gold cardstock so I substituted it with rose gold. I set aside these die cuts to work on the flowers. I die cut several flowers from various pink and red cardstocks. I also die cut the flowers from white cardstock. On the white flowers, I painted each flower with gouache to mimic the acrylic paint used on the vintage box. I was not precise with my painting as I wanted an organic, artsy look. I varied the color and added additional brushstrokes on each flower to mimic the texture on the painted flowers. The flower centers were die cut from black cardstock and topped with black nuvo drops.

I layered the flowers – a plain, cardstock flower paired with a painted flower – and adhered them together using liquid glue. Once all of the flowers were adhered, I adhered the completed card front to an acetate card base. I adhered the extra die cuts to the inside and outside of the acetate card for a polished look. I rarely make no sentiment cards, but I thought it looked good without one. If you wanted to, you could use the space inside the card to stamp a small sentiment. For a final touch, I added nuvo drops in pink, red, and white all over the panel similar to the paint dots in the inspiration photo. Hope you find inspiration in unexpected places and turn it into your next papercraft! Thanks so much for stopping by!
