Flowering Dogwood A2 Card

Flowering Dogwood A2 Card

Hi everyone!  Today I have a pretty straight forward easy card that you can quickly create.  I thought this card type was a good way to showcase the gorgeous Flowering Dogwood Collection.

Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Pink Card Stock, Green Card Stock, Gathered Twigs Distressed Ink, Versamark, White Embossing Powder, Glitter Spray Sparkle, Micro Glitter Crystal and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

This is an A2 card with a twist.  To make this card, start with a piece of white card stock that measures 5 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and scor at the 1″ mark on the 5 1/4″ side.  This will leave you with an A2 card and a 1″ flap.  Add a layer of pink card stock to both the flap as well as the inside that measures 1/4″ smaller .  Then repeat with a layer of paper from the Flowering Dogwood Paper Collection for the inside.  For the frame, stamp and die-cut the Flowering Dogwood Branches Cling Stamp Set several times and glue together for strength (I did this 4 times).  The Dogwood frame was stamped on white card stock using Expresso Truffle and and cut with the matching die before distressing with Gathered Twigs.  The Dogwood flowers were stamped on white cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder and cut with the matching die.  They were distressed with Rose Coral Ink before shaping the flowers with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and finishing with stamens die cut from green card stock.  The leaves were stamped on white card stock using Olive Grove and and cut with the matching die before distressing with Bamboo Leaves.  The Dove image was stamped on white card stock using Tuxedo Black and cut with the matching die before spraying with Glimmer Spray Sparkle and dusting with Micro Glitter Crystal.

Thanks so much for visiting.

Have a wonderful day!

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
