Flowering Florals Pop Up Card for #GDP229

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share a card with you that I designed using the Flowering Florals Speciality Designer Series and the Tags In Bloom Stamp Set; both are new Sale-a-bration items that will be coming out on March 3, 2020.  I also designed this card for this weeks Global Design Project Color Challenge.  Which are featuring some fun regal colors this month.  Here's a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started off my card by cutting my piece of Flowering Florals Specialty Designer Series Paper down to 4" x 5 1/4".  I went ahead and cut down to card front size so that it would be easier to turn and move while coloring.  To color this piece of DSP I used Crushed Curry, Night of Navy, and Garden Green Stampin' Write Markers along with a Blender Pen.  This paper has a slicker surface to the front and allows the ink from the Stampin' Write markers and blender pen to move easier than some others.  I had to be careful how much ink I put down because it's not watercolor paper and will only hold so much moisture.  I put the darkest (pure color straight from the marker) where I wanted the shadows to be, and then used the blender pen to pull it out to the other parts of the flowers, leaves, and berries.  I worked petal by petal of the flowers repeating this process until I had everything colored.  


Once I had all the images colored I then layered the colored designer series paper onto a Crushed Curry Mat that was cut 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".  And, then applied it to my Night of Navy Card base.  To finish off the outside I stamped the floral tag from the Tags in Bloom Sale-a-bration set in Versamark ink onto some scrap of Night of Navy Cardstock and heat embossed it with Silver embossing powder.  I then used my paper snips and cut it out.  I added some of the crushed curry crinkled seam binding to the front and placed my embossed image on top.  I then stamped the stitched layer from the stamp set in Garden Green Ink and the sentiment in Crushed Curry.  I punched this out using the Label Me Lovely Punch and added it to the center of the embossed image with a few Stampin' Dimensionals.  To finish off the front I used some Navy Rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone pack from the Holiday Catalog that are carrying over.  
For the inside of the card I created a simple pop up theired pop up panel with some whisper white cardstock that was cut at 4 x 10 1/2" and scored at 5 1/4.  I also colored some more of the Flowering Floral Speciality Designer Series Paper and cut them out by hand and added the colored leaves, flowers, and berries to the pop up feature of the card.  I attached each with a little perfectly placed liquid glue.  I stamped a inside sentiment and add a night of navy mat to that and attached it below the pop up.
