Falling Flowers | Crazy Crafters Blog Hop | Special Guest Janneke de Jong

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Janneke de Jong from the Netherlands. Janneke's blog Happy Stampin' is full of amazing projects, I decided to CASE the card below -  I was drawn in by the colours (haha, pink, funny that!) and also the combination of the positive and negative die cuts.

I don't have the Special Reason Bundle that Janneke used for her card, so I have improvised and used Falling Flowers Bundle, here is what I have come up with:

I used clear embossing powder to stamp the flowers then water coloured using Watermelon Wonder and Delightful Dijon from the 2014-2016 In Colour suite as well as the sentiments from Dragonfly Dreams are stamped in Tip Top Taupe. 

Unlike Stylish Stems the May Flower framelits don't come in 2 pieces, so the detailed die cuts "fully cut" the image. I adhered the die cut to the coloured cardstock and then raised the Whisper White layer with dimensionals. Lastly I added some bakers twine, I love how twine is so forgiving when it comes to tying bows!
