Chic Floral - Just For You

Good Morning Everyone,

Only 2 days left until Phill's Craftathon where 50 lucky crafters will have a wonderful day making cards with Phill and Julia Watts.

I will be there helping out and look forward to meeting you all, either again or for  the first time.

Today's card is something different from the last few days but I will be back with Christmas Cards soon as I am getting a little obsessed with all the lovely New Stamps, Colour Cloud, Paper pads etc that Phill has brought out for us all.

Here we go then with today's card, its an A4

Products used: ( which are links to Phill's website too) :-)

A4 Card White Card Blank
A4 Green Card stock
A4 White Card stock
Chic Floral Everyday Sentiment Collection A5 Stamps
Chic Floral Corner, Border & Icon A5 Stamp Set
8 x 8 Snakeskin Embossing Folder
Chic Floral Paper pad
Sue Wilson French Collection Corner, Border & Tag Dies
Sue Wilson French Collection Provence Dies
Sue Wilson Finishing Touches Petite Vinery Dies
Spell Binder Blooms Three
Stick Pins
Seam Binding

1st layer
Green card stock cut to 20 cm x 29 cm and attach to main card.

2nd layer
Plain white card stock cut to 19 cm x 28 cm I then used a stamp from the Corner Border & Icon stamps and Chic Moss Mister Spray to create the background, then attached to main card.

Using a piece of plain white card I cut to 17 cm x 18 cm and embossed it using the Snakeskin Embossing Folder, then pierced around the edges. I then cut across the bottom diagonally.

Next I cut out the border die and stamped the top of it using the Border Stamp and then attached it to the 17 x 18 card.

Using the plain side of Chic Floral Moss paper I embossed again using the Snakeskin Folder. I then attached both pieces to the main card.


Using the French Collection Provence Die I cut this out using  plain white card, then stamped the Sentiment from Chic Floral Everyday Collection Stamps.

Then using the Provence die I cut out a piece of Chic Floral Moss paper and attached the Sentiment to it using pads, and attached this to card again using pads.


To create the flowers I used Spell Binder Blooms Three and Sue Wilson Petite Vinery.
I cut out the bloom using plain white card and also left over chic floral paper, then used Chic Moss Mister Spray on the white ones, after shaping these I attached to the main card along with the Vinery.


For this I used a Spellbinder Butterfly Die and cut it out using scraps of Chic Floral Moss plain and patterned paper, and attached to card.

Finishing Touches

I edged around the Sentiment with Chic Moss Twinkles, and also used this on the butterfly wings.
The triple bow and swags were made using seam binding, Finally I added Stick pins and Medium Dazzler to the bow and small dazzlers to the flowers.

                                                                  Happy Crafting


  1. Morning Barb and Phill, oh I like this, I so wished I could get to the classes but it is not to be. I saw John Lockwood using the Cloud stuff yesterday, that has got to go into my shopping basket, much easier then stamp pads I am sure.

    Looking forward to seeing you on Hochanda soon, John did brilliantly yesterday.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
