Jodi's Beautiful Bunch of Blossoms Card

Too Cool Team member Jodi Geers shared this gorgeous card at last month's team event and she presented some great tips for creating the wonderful textures and layers! 

Embossing Paste Background—This card begins with a Berry Burst card base textured with some of the new Embossing Paste.  Jodi laid the Pattern Party decorative mask over the card front, securing it with some washi tape.  Then, she spread on a thin layer of Embossing Paste over the mask over part of the background. Once she finished spreading the layer of paste, she carefully lifted off the mask and let it dry while she completed the rest of the card layers.  TIP: Be sure to clean the mask with soap and water immediately after using it, so the paste doesn't dry onto the mask. 
Pinewood Planks Texture—Jodi texture embossed a 2-1/4" x  5-1/2" piece of Crumb Cake card stock with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Texture Impressions Folder.  You'll only need ONE cutting pad to run this extra-thick embossing folder.  TIP: Spritz the card stock with a light mist of water to loosen up the fibers help it become more pliable.  It really makes a big difference in the depth of the embossed texture and it keeps the paper from tearing.

Blossom Petals—The focal point of this card is created with the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set and the coordinating Blossom Builder Punch.  To make each of the six petals, Jodi stamped the outline or "skeleton" petal image in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White. Next, she stamped the solid stamp in Berry Burst ink that's stamped-off once.  The petals are finished by stamping the partial petal image in Berry Burst.  Then, she punched each of the petals with the Blossom Builder Punch.  TIP: Stamp all of the petals side-by-side on a strip of card stock that is about 1-1/4" wide.  The petal is situated upside-down on the punch, so stamping them on the strip makes it easier to punch without wasting a lot of card stock or having to trim it down.  Make sure they are stamped far enough apart so that the other parts of the punch don't interfere with the petal shape.
Blossom Assembly—Jodi used a Bone Folder to curve the petals downward.  To assemble, she put a dollop of hot glue onto a Silicone Craft Mat and added a layer of three petals, then added the remaining three petals in-between.  She also hot glued loops of White Baker's Twine to the flower back and adhered the whole flower to the card front with more hot glue. 
Flower Finish—Jodi brushed on some Wink of Stella Clear onto the flower petals for some shimmer and added a Clear Faceted Gem to the center.

Flower & Leaf Accents—Jodi stamped the Bunch of Blossoms leaf skeleton image in Memento Black, then stamping over the top with the solid image in Lemon Lime Twist stamped off, and the partial image in full strength.  Jodi hand-cut these leaves, curved them with a Bone Folder and added them around the flower with Glue Dots (or more hot glue). 
The tiny flowers are stamped in Powder Pink with Berry Burst dotted accents, then punched with the Blossom Builder Punch.  TIP: Again, stamp these flowers onto a small strip of Whisper White to be able to best position them into the punch.  They are attached to the card front with Mini Dimensionals.

Berry Bow—Jodi finished the card with a Berry Burst 5/8" Crinkled Ribbon bow.  TIP: To make the bow lay nicely with the tails pointing down, Jodi creates two loops in the ribbon while it's still on the spool, then ties the loops (bunny ears) into a knot.  It's adhered with a Mini Dimensional.   
Wow!  What a wonderfully detailed card!  I love it, Jodi!  Thanks for sharing!
