Hollyhocks by Jenny Gropp

Oooh... we have a beautiful die cut card from Jenny Gropp to share today using Hollyhocks #DIE169-R, Typewriter Alphabet Uppercase #DIE160-U, Circle Frame #DIE001-Z


I love this die!I know I say that all the time with IO, but it's true!
Daffodils and Lenten Roses are blooming right now in my yard... the key to their health is me not taking care of them! Hopefully they won't get frozen with this crazy weather! I chose my flower colors around the paper I was using: Bo Bunny's new Primrose Collection. I used the new Typewriter Alphabet Die to cut and spell and out BLOOM along the bottom.



I used the Circle Shaker Frame as my background. I added a green center piece and then embossed it with a Polka Dot Embossing Folder.The embossing was a little too much so I toned it down to a little  by running it through my embossing machine in a "paper only" sandwich, flattening out the pattern. To get the pink frame edge. I cut the frame in to four equal pieces and glued it to the back.


I cut the Hollyhocks out of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# card stock. I colored them using the three Copics shown.



 I used a Clear Wink of Stella pen to add some sparkle. I took this in my craft room as I was making the card, the sparkle does not show when I photo it using my light tent. 



 The finished card opens tent style at the bottom. I added a white hollyhock die piece down the side. I also added a little Clear Wink of Stella pen on the white flowers for some sparkle. 


Here's the up close, I added a foofy white silk bow. The Clear Wink of Stella Glitter does not show up in my light tent.... sugar sparkly in person! 


Have a great day!
