Now, for some inspiration. My 5″ X 7″ card features the following products from the Sunny Vibes release:

Nested Domed Arches Frames nesting dies

Sunshine and Smiles stamp set and coordinating dies

Lily Duo Dies

Tin Roof stamp set

Zippy Zinnias Embossing Folder and cutting dies

Color Blend Cardstock Assortment pack 

To create this A7 (5″X7″) card, I used Neenah 80lb Classic Crest cardstock for the card base and card front panel. I also cut the domed arch from the same cardstock using the largest die from the Nested Domed Arches Frames nesting dies. After cutting the arch, I embossed it using the Zippy Zinnias Embossing Folder. I embossed another piece of white cardstock and used the coordinating cutting dies to cut three individual zinnias from that piece. I colored the flowers using Copic Sketch Markers in RV55, RV02, RV11, Y19, and YR24. I quickly added a little color to the edges to make them stand out. These zinnias are so pretty!

For the beautiful lilies, I used the Lily Duo Dies and the Color Blend Cardstock Assortment pack. This paper gives you a two-toned effect without using any ink or markers! I glued the layers together, added white highlight markings on the petals using a Gelly Roll pen and a few dew droplets using Glossy Accents.

To create the background, I stamped the front panel of the card using the Tin Roof stamp set and Ranger Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink. I attached the embossed arch, lilies and zinnias, and a few sequins. Lastly, I stamped the sweet sentiment from the Sunshine and Smiles stamp set and used the dies to cut it out. I attached it to the lower left corner to complete the card.
