Hello there! Today I am hosting Watercooler Wednesday\’s #224 – Karen\’s Feminine \”Anything Goes\” Challenge and I am so pleased you stopped by.
I\’ve been playing with alcohol inks and had some scraps I wanted to use to make into a floral card. I just ordered these fun floral die-cuts (Newton\’s Nook Flower Trio) for this idea.
I started by die cutting the parts to each flower/leaf and then assembled. I wanted a textured background so I used an embossing folder (Sizzix/Tim Holtz Alterations) on a neutral cardstock panel. I like that there are different sizes of \”dots\” as well as empty spaces. I also diecut my sentiment from an alcohol ink scrap. I added the dry embossed panel to a white A2 card and then added the flowers with foam dots for added dimension. I like this cheery card and it is going to my mom on her birthday. Red is her favorite color so I thought she would like to top bloom.
I am entering this card in Alphabet Challenge \”E is for Embossing Folder\”. I love the texture that embossing folders add to a project.
Thanks for stopping by!

A gorgeous CAS card, I love the embossing folder you have used. Thank you for sharing with us at the Alphabet Challenge, and hope you can join us again soon ~ Janice DT
Yes such a cheery card, full of colour and texture. The alcohol ink colours look fabulous and love the texture from the embossing folder too. Your mum is going to love it x
This is a lovely card. The colours are brilliant and the flowers and foliage work really well cut from alcohol inked scraps. I love it xx
