Minimalist Floral: Part III

Hello! This is the last card from this mini series of CAS cards. Once I did the first one, I knew I wanted to try a few more alternative designs based on the same minimal style. I sure enjoyed creating them.

Today’s design is the result of mixing techniques from both previous cards. The image was heat embossed in white. The card was distressed in various tones of pink, but only over the stamped image, creating a contour and blending it towards the center of the card. You can see that I didn’t distress the lower right corner, because I wanted to create and unfinished frame. The card base this time is sand, instead of white. So you may find that it has less contrast, but it still ended up nicely balanced.

Materials
Flourishes – Cherry Blossoms
Ranger:
– Embossing Ink
– Distress ink in Spun Sugar
– Distress ink in Worn Lipstick
– Blending tool
Inkadinkado embossing powder in Clear
ZAP! heat tool
Memento dye ink in Rhubarb Stalk
Imagine Crafts sponge dauber 
EK Success Embossed Curve Slim Edger border punch
Bazic mounting tape
Merletto crystal stickers
Other generic materials
White textured cardstock
Sand cardstock 

I applied a bit of memento ink in Rhubarb Stalk on the corners to deepen the transition and to coordinate with the sentiment. It ended more like a darker shade of pink, it blended well with the distress inks I used. The white label was handmade and I curved one of the sides using an EK Success border punch.

Hope you liked this card. Let me know what you thought of this series of cards, and if possible tell me which of the 3 is your favorite. I’d like to know!¬†
