Picture Gallery Card - Hand Stamped Sentiment #319

This card was made for the Inspiration Challenge with Hand Stamped Sentiments at this location

I call my creation the picture gallery card because it reminds me of different sizes of picture frames clustered together on a wall.  The design was inspired by the above picture.

To make the template in which the design elements will be added, I placed 2 sizes of stitched rectangle dies and 2 sizes of layering square framelits on a piece of Early Espresso card stock and die cut them with the Big Shot. This is added to an identical sized piece of Woodgrain DSP using dimensionals.

In the larger rectangle at the top left,  I placed a bouquet of Blushing Bride flowers on die cut Mossy Meadow stems die cut using the Bouquet Bunch dies. A bow made using the braided linen thread was added to the top part of the stem. This bouquet was placed at an angle with one end of the bouquet under the frame and the other end slightly over.  The bouquet extending over the end of the card was snipped off.

In the smaller adjacent square  is placed the sentiment "Hello"  from "Good Morning Magnolia". This sentiment is stamped with Early Espresso ink on Whisper White card stock and made into banner notched at both ends. The edges were sponged with Crumb Cake ink before it was adhered in the square at an angle using dimensionals, 

In the rectangle frame in the lower right a vase of flowers is created using the Varied Vase stamp set and die cuts using Bouquet Bunch dies.  The outline of the vase is stamped using Black Memento ink and then filled with Crumb Cake ink.  After fussy cutting, the edges were sponged and the other die cut stems and were adhered to the wrong side of the vase. This was then added to the frame using dimensionals.  Three flowers stamped using Flirty Flamingo ink was adhered randomly on the stem and a tiny pearl added to each flower center.

In the smallest square an identical size of Whisper White is die cut and placed in the square.  Two Flirty Flamingo flowers with leaves were then added.

The completed frame was added to a Flirty Flamingo card front with dimensionals.
