MHK Designs August Release Day 3 - Marvelous!!!

Flowers are always a MARVELOUS addition to any card or scrapbook layout....and this new digital stamp set, Marvelous from MHK Designs is no exception.

I decided to make a sweet and simple card and let the floral image speak for itself.

I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to create the white background layer of the card to not distract from the floral image.  I used my Cricut Explore's print & cut feature to cut out the flowers, and then colored them with colored pencils.  I gave them a coat of matte Mod Podge to add a subtle shine and make the cutout a little sturdier.  I used my stitched oval dies to cut out the green and white ovals.  I adhered the green oval directly to the card and the used foam tape to pop up the white oval for dimension.  I then partially glued the flowers to the white oval, leaving parts of the flowers and leaves slightly raised for a more realistic look.  And finally, I add a lavender bow and the tag with the sentiment.  I love the way it all came together.
