I immediately thought of using the Botanical Gardens suite for the card. I wanted die-cut flowers and, at the moment, these are my go-to blooms. I decided to use three of the flowers in the framelits dies. Two of them have double-cut petals while the third is smaller and simpler. For the large flower, I went all out and dipped the edges of both cuts of petal edges in Versamark ink and then covered them with Gold embossing powder. Once I used the Heat Gun, the gold on the petals was absolutely gorgeous and I knew I wasn't going to sponge the edges with more ink. I did, however, sponge the other flowers with Watermelon Wonder ink to deepen the colour of the perimeters of the petals.
I wanted to use a variety of golds and thought about the gold sheets in the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack. I keep forgetting that the stack included metallic papers as well and the one with the script seemed perfect for my project. I began with a base of Heavy Whisper White and then added a layer of Mint Macaron. Then I embossed a piece of Whisper White using the Brick embossing folder, sponged that lightly using Mint Macaron ink to bring out the lines between the bricks, and added that to the layers. I only used a much smaller rectangle of the metallic Gold printed paper and mounted that right against the right edge of the brick embossed layer.
Even though I had already added Mint Macaron cardstock as well as ink, I felt the flowers really needed some foliage and so cut two sprigs of open leaves from a piece of Mint Macaron paper using the Rose Garden thinlits. I chose to make a banner for my sentiment and used the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set for that. I backed the banner with a narrow layer of Mint Macaron to soften the white edges. A little Watermelon Wonder heart covered with Crystal Effects finished off the banner.
For the centres of my flowers I used Gold Foil specialty paper and, once the centres were attached, added a bit of Gold Dazzling Details to that for additional texture and a different gold.
