For this project, I created a beautiful floral card using the Dahlia Close Up Cling stamp and the Brushed You stamp set, with green and gold in my mind. While coming up with the color scheme, I thought of the shamrocks and the pot of gold.
Let’s take a look! 🙂

  • I started the card by stamping the Dahlia Close Up Cling stamp on the Bristol Smooth cardstock in Versamark. I heat embossed the image in white. Then I colored the entire image with green and yellow Zig markers. I blended out the colors with clear sparkled pen instead of clear water. It’s one of my favorite ways to watercolor. When it was completely dry, I trimmed the panel down to 5.5″x4″ and set it aside.
  • I stamped the sentiment “so lucky to have you as my friend” from the Brushed You stamp set on the 5.5″x 5″ vellum in versamark and heat embossed in gold. I hid some strong double sided tape on the back of big “you” and wrapped in around the entire watercolor panel. I taped it on the back so it doesn’t move around.
  • I adhered strips of the Glossy Fine Gold Adhesive Glitter paper on the sides of a A2 sized card base. I adhered the main panel on the card base using fun foam and finished the card by adding some Medallion Gold sequins.
