mama elephant freestyle florals on vellum

Today's card once again features Mama Elephant's lovely Freestyle Florals stamp set. The flowers in this set are so pretty, and so much fun to color! I colored the flowers with copics again like last time, but this time I stamped the flowers on vellum for a different look.

Here are the details on how I made this card. The base is a standard A2 top-fold card made of Neenah solar white 80 lb cardstock. I cut the orange patterned paper with a stitched rectangle die the same size as the card front, 5 1/2 x 4 1/4". I cut a another stitched rectangle out of the white cardstock for the front panel at 4 1/2 x 3 1/4". The flowers were stamped on vellum with memento ink. I don't care for stazon ink so I used memento ink and set it with my heat tool for a few seconds just to be sure it wouldn't smear. I cut the flowers out with the matching dies and I also cut extra flowers out of vellum to layer under the matching flowers on my card.

I colored the flowers on the back side of the vellum with copic markers in the colors pictured below. I used two or three colors on each flower and leaf. The colors don't blend together quite like they do on paper, but the result is really lovely.

I layered the vellum shapes together with dot roller adhesive, and then onto the white panel with the same adhesive. The extra layer of vellum makes the colors more vibrant and helps to hide the adhesive. The sentiment is from the stamp set that came with this card kit (sold out), and I stamped it with Color Theory Gray Area ink. The white panel was adhered with foam tape, and the orange background with the dot roller.

If you'd like to see another card with the Freestyle Florals stamp set, I shared one in this post. That's it for today. Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
