Creating Dimension featuring Simon Says Stamp’s Tattered Leaves

Hello everyone! We have had beautiful temperatures and the snow has been quickly melting! I was inspired to use Simon Says Stamp’s newly released Tattered Leaves in a Spring inspired card. But as I write this post, I know what is awaiting me. We had a fairly large dump of snow overnight, the temperatures have dropped and I am about to head out with my little snow blower to tackle the job …. and as I work, I will be thinking about Spring!

I began this card with an A2 sized panel of Bristol Smooth card stock cut with one of the dies from Simon’s Nesting Domed Arches. The arch was embossed with Simon’s Lumen Embossing Folder.

Two each of Tattered Leaves and Fine Foxglove were cut from Bristol Smooth card stock. The die cuts were left in the backing so they could be easily inked with blender brushes. Simon’s Padditively Saturated inks were used on the die cuts and Distress Oxide inks for the arch:

Flowers - Guava, Lemonade

Leaves - Lemonade, Celery, Aspen

Arch - Pumice Stone, Hickory Smoke, Black Soot (Hero arts Unicorn White was used to to highlight the high points of the embossing)

A panel, 4 1/4” by 5 1/2” of Bristol Smooth card stock was inked with Cery and Seafoam. The arch was mounted on foam and adhered. One of the Tattered Leaves die cuts was trimmed to tuck into the inside of the arch. After the foxgloves were adhered, a gel pen was used to add detail to their throats. The 2nd Tattered Leaves die cut was adhered to the outside of the arch. Spring Blessings was cut from two shades of green and foam. The darker green die cut was mounted on the foam and the lighter one offset on the the green. The extra leaves from trimming the first Tattered Leaves die cut were used to highlight the sentiment. Green and pink confetti finished off with Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew embellish the card.
