Concord & Daffodil Apothecary Art Cards

Pretty much, if it's purple…I love it!  And, when I saw this card design I knew I had to re-create it into Two Cool cards…

The gorgeous combination of colors and textures are just my style!  Be sure to click to enlarge to see all the details!

The card base is a 5-1/4 square of Daffodil Delight card stock, which is the perfect size to fit in our 5-1/2" square Whisper White Envelopes. 

Purple apothecary h 3The background is a piece of Concord Crush, embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder.  I had to run the piece through twice to since it was larger than the folder.  TIP: When you are embossing a partial piece, make sure the top cutting pad is only covering that edge you are embossing, not overlapping other parts that may have already been embossed. 

I layered a strip of Wisteria wonder along the edge, cut and embossed with the Adorning Accents Edgelits and Impressions Folders.  Victoria Crochet Trim is layered over the top and it's finished with Pearl Jewel accents. 

Purple apothecary v 2The focal piece is the large Apothecary Art design, stamped in StazOn Black onto Whisper White card stock, then colored in with a Blender Pen and Classic Ink Pads.  I hand-cut the image to layer on top of Concord Crush and Wisteria Wonder layers die-cut with the Labels Framelits. I ran the Wisteria Wonder layer through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder for even more texture.

The label is finished with the Apothecary Art sentiment stamped inside another stamped image of the banner, then hand-cut and popped up with Dimensionals.  A little Dazzling Diamonds on the flowers adds a little sparkle—a must!

Finally, I've topped it off with a double Daffodile Delight 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon bow.  Love that extra pop of yellow!

Purple apothecary h 2I've been trying so hard to do more simple and easily duplicatible cards lately that creating this luxurious card felt like a guilty pleasure!  All the layers, all the textures, all the embellishments—how I've missed you all!  Love it!
