Art in Bloom – Stay Strong

Many are making cards in support of Ukraine and I chose to contribute.

Over at Color Hues (#36), the colors are yellow and blue…

… and I chose the sketch over at Paper Craft Crew (#461) and the Tic Toc Toe (#151) for the focal image and embellishment.

A quick card. Here is the result:

ART IN BLOOM – BLOOM DIES – CARDS FOR UKRAINE – TCH36 – PCC461 – TTTC151

Steps:

  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Blueberry Bushel.
  • Background Panel: (4” x 5¼”).  Basic White cardstock.
    • The Dotted and Block pattern stamps from the Art in Bloom stamp set were stamped with Blueberry Bushel and Pineapple Punch ink horizontally across the middle.
    • The sentiment, stay strong, from the Handwritten Sentiments stamp set (Dina Wakley) was chosen because it so appropriate.
    • The panel was then dry-embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Focal Image – Flowers: (3½” x 4¼”) Basic White cardstock.
    • The outline three Floral image from the same stamp set, Art in Bloom, was stamped with Blueberry Bushell ink and the three (Two-Step) in-fill stamps were added to the Flowers with Pineapple Punch ink.
    • The Flowers were then die-cut with the coordinating Bloom Dies set. 

To complete the card and to match the sketch, I added the two vertical (⅛”) Grosgrain Ribbons in the matching colors, Blueberry Bushel and Pineapple Punch.  Tic: Bright Colors, Tac: Flowers and Toe: Ribbon.  Both Blueberry Bushell and Pineapple Punch are retired colors but they were an ideal choice for the Ukrainian Flag.
