Hi Crafty Friends! I am so excited to share today’s card with you for a couple of reason. First off, my mom had a huge love of irises. We had a ton of them in our yard when I was growing up. I think of my mom whenever I see an iris. Secondly, this card is the feature of my very first YouTube video. So you can visit my channel and see exactly how I made this beautiful card.

This set is an older Build a Flower set from Altenew. They have since changed them to Build a Garden Sets. However, this Build a Flower: Bearded Iris is a stunner.

Products used:

I love that irises come in so many colors and these blues from the Icy Lake Crisp Mini Ink Set are stunning on this card. The layering guide with the Build a Flower: Bearded Iris set is so helpful to get everything lined up perfectly. To view the You Tube video on exactly how this card was made please go to my Altenew: Bearded Iris video. Make sure to Like and Subscribe while there.

I stamped the flower images starting with the lightest blue in the Icy Lake Crisp Mini Ink Set. I did the same with the leaves using the Tropical Forest Crisp Mini Ink Set. I added some interest to the background panel with a stitched detail rectangle die and some ink blending.

I embossed a sentiment from the Heartfelt Sentiments Set on black cardstock using the gorgeous Antique Crisp Embossing Powder. I then mounted everything on my ink blended card panel, adding a little bling to bring out the gold embossed sentiment. I added stability to my Parchment card base by adding a heavy weight card panel (4×5.25) to the inside then added the front card panel.

Again for more detailed instructions for this card, go watch my very first video here. Again make sure to Like and Subscribe while there.

I hope this beautiful card brightened your day and the video gives you lots of tips and tricks. Thank you for stopping by my blog and have a great day.
