Today we are revisiting the North Coast Creations February release! And such a beautiful release it is! If you love flowers and beautiful greetings, these sets are definitely for you!
I’m using the Floral Sentiments 6 for my card. Technically, the image is a hydrangea, but except for the leaves, it looks a lot like a geranium. So I stamped it 3 times, colored with Copics and fussy cut, making sure to trim off the leaves. I love geraniums so I have 3 sizes of geranium leaf punches and I used those for the new leaves. After punching the leaves out of green card stock, I added some color to mimic real leaves and some “vein” lines with a stylus. The greeting was stamped on a large leaf and I added a couple of stamped & die cut bees (Our Daily Bread designs – Zinnia & ODBD Zinnia dies) and a die cut white background (ODBD Daisy Chain Bg die). I used a curved border die on the white & green backgrounds and attached them to a piece of the beautiful ODBD Blooming Garden collection paper, The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used for my geraniums.
