Altenew | Pink Floral Black And White Striped Card

Pink Flowers Black and White Stripes. Card by @craftwalks

Hi friends,

Today I want to share a card design which I like to revisit from time to time. I’m talking about floral elements onto a black and white striped background. There are many ways you can get a striped background, in the card I’m sharing here I made it with embossing paste.

I started off by cutting a panel out of Jet Black Cardstock and adding white stripes onto by applying white embossing paste through Watercolor Stripes Stencil. And I applied the paste rather unevenly and rough to follow the uneven design of watercolor stripes.

Next I stamped and die-cut several flowers and leaves using Build-A-Flower: Carnation and Wild About You Stamp and Die Sets. I used different shades of pink and red for stamping.

After all the elements were ready I created two floral clusters and foam mounted them in the right bottom and left top corners of the panel. Trimming the excess with scissors.

On side note. It can be tricky to adhere something onto embossing paste as it has very porous structure. Sometimes you have no other options, use the strongest adhesive and hope for the best ;) In case of this design I had quite a bit of paper revealed in between stripes. So I simply placed my foam squares onto these paper stripes and placed the floral clusters on top. It made them pop less than if I placed foam squares on embossing paste. But this way they’re secured better and there is still some dimension.

I created a sentiment by die-cutting hugs word out of Solar White and Jet Black Cardstock using Script Words Die Set and adhering them together with a slight shift. To create a shadow affect. After that the sentiment was adhered onto the panel. Which in turn got adhered onto a white card base.
