Spring has sprung with this gorgeous card by Sharon Nettleship, created using the Spectrum Noir Harmony Opaque Pigment ink pads.
You Will Need:
- White card blank
- Neenah Classic Crest card stock
- 8″x8″ textured cardstock – Pastels
- 3D embossing folder – any design
- Harmony Opaque Pigment ink pads – Pale Fig, Baby Blue, Frosty Jade, Twilight Grey
- Clear embossing powder
- Floral Arrangements stamp set
- Essential Sentiments stamp set
- Contrasting ribbon
- Collall All Purpose glue

Trim a piece of the lilac card from the Textured card pack to be slightly smaller than your card blank. Adhere to the card blank with Collall All Purpose glue.
Emboss a piece of Neenah cardstock with your chosen 3D embossing folder and lightly ink with the Baby Blue Opaque Pigment ink. Cut three large panels to fit across the lilac layer and then one to fit along the bottom.
Adhere the ribbon to the panel that fits along the bottom of the card and then adhere all the panels with All Purpose glue.
Stamp six flowers: three in Pale Fig and three in Twilight Grey and then emboss them with a clear embossing powder. Then stamp three of the leaf stems in Frosty Jade and again clear emboss. Add a little gem or pearl to the centre of your flowers.
Fussy cut the flowers and leaves, then adhere them to your card using 3D pads. (You may need to trim down a few of the leaves).
Stamp out the sentiment with the Pale Fig ink pad and clear emboss. Layer up the sentiment with the lilac card and adhere to the ribbon panel.
