5 Ingredients for a Card (Take 2)

Hello friends!

I am back with another installment about creating a card with 5 ingredients. 
Here was my first one in case you miss seeing it.
All highlighted links are listed at the end of this post.

1. Die: The flower was die cut from Wispy Begonia. You can definitely fussy cut the flower, but the die-cutting makes it all uniform and perfect. The pointed watercolored leaves are my leftovers from Hibiscus Garden 3D Die.

youare so sweet

2. Emboss:  The Fancy Frame Stamp is amazing. The delicate lace frame is so fine and detailed. The whit-embossing simulates the fine doily.
you are so sweet-001

3. Stamps: stamping on paper is always a good idea! that's exactly what I did. Due to the slick surface of the paper, I added clear-embossing on top of the stamping. Works like magic!

you are so sweet

4. Pattern paper: For the begonia, I cut and layered 2 pieces of pattern paper from Enchanting Washes.  It was a bit like paper-piecing. This adds dimensions and extra colors! 
you are so sweet

5. Washi Tape: Adding a strip of Silver or Gold Glitter Tape is always a good idea.

I hope that you find today's post inspiring and perhaps it makes you want to create something with 5 ingredients? If you do, please link it up to my "show & Share" (see top right side bar). I'd love to see what you create!

What a pretty delicate card! Love the lacy look of the Fancy Frame stamp behind the flowers. It helps when you point out the 5 elements of the card.

Beautiful as usual Virginia! Thanks for showing it’s possible to have pretty flowers without watercoloring your own! Really like the embossed background and reminder to use some of of the glittery washi table hidden in the desk drawer! Thanks for sharing!

Such a pretty delicate valentine. Love the vellum you added--really adds a soft touch to the card.

Virginia, I truly thought you had embossed the branch on the first card. The branch and flowers looked like it had been placed not stamped--so life like. The card with that subtle background then the stencil addition could be framed as a painting. Thank you for inspiring me. Love love this release.
