Freesia Easter Card/ The Flower Challenge #55

Hello everyone!

It’s April already and it’s time for another flower challenge. The theme for The Flower Challenge this month is “Pretty Pastel”

Here is my take on this theme.

For my project, I decided to create the background with pastel colors along with the floral image.

This beautiful Freesia image is a digital stamp by Varada Sharma Designs. This is one of her march release. By the way Varada Sharma is our sponsor for this month.

I printed this image on a 80lb Neenah card stock and colored it using Copic markers. The flowers in V12 and BV00 and the stems using G99.

I then cut out the image using scissors.

For the background I used Gina Marie cover die. This is not a slimline die but I used a partial dye cutting method and extended this died to fit on the slimline panel. I used the shimmery white card stock for this.

Then I used the same die to cut up different pastel color card stocks in pink, yellow, blue and purple.

Then I used the die cut inlay method to create this colorful pastel background for my project.

I used another Gina Marie slimline rectangle die to cut the frame around the card with shimmery white card stock

The little white shimmery bow I have in the bottom of the card is made with a silhouette design.

For the sentiment of this card I printed out Easter wishes then I cut it out with waffle flowers additional circles die. I also double circle frameUsing two of the circle dies.

I hope my card inspires you to create something similar so let’s play along with us At the flower challenge and share your projects there.

  1. Beautiful freesias! And the colors you used for the background are so lovely! It’s great how you extended the normal sized die for a slimline card! The bow is a cute finishing touch!

    Hello Jyoti: I absolutely love the amazing background you created with this die, beautiful soft pastels to compliment your gorgeous flowers.
    I’m amazed at how you extended this die to create a slim card, beautifully done.
    Stay healthy and safe.

  3. If this doesn’t say Spring I don’t know what does, Jyoti. That inlaid background in the soft colors is fabulous and kudos to you for figuring out how to partial die cut to make it fit your slimline card.

  4. Gorgeous card Jyoti! Your pastel background is beautiful with the inlay of the three colours of Easter. I imagine it took a while to inlay all those little pieces, but it is so worth the effort as it turned out beautifully. Gorgeous freesia stem with the bow at the bottom. So pretty!

  5. Jyoti, you’re the early bird this morning! If I were you, I couldn’t wait to share this lovely card either!
    Love the way you’ve extended your dies to fit, and these gorgeous pastel crocus are so wonderful!
    Happy Easter!
