Layered Flower Card – Raised Feature Technique
For this Layered Flower card, I used the Raised Feature technique. With this technique, it was easy to go from simple stamping to an advanced card!
I love simple cards, but I also love featuring a single element, like in this Layered Flower Card! That flower is so pretty with the pink leaves —I had to make sure that it really stood out against the background.
Featuring one element on your card with deep colors and dimensional adhesives to pop it up can take a simple stamped card to a more advanced looking card!
Particularly, this Raised Feature Technique can be used with just about any of your favorite stamps! For instance, instead of a bed of flowers like in this card, I can also imagine this technique used with a forest scene of trees or with a sky full of butterflies!
This may appear to be a complicated card, but the trickiest part is keeping the layers in order by size (so it’s not tricky at all!).
Here’s the recipe to make a card with a Raised Feature!
Recipe for a Layered Flower Card:
Cut your Card Stock:
- Smoky Slate:
- 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, scored at 4 1/4” for your cardbase.
- 5” x 3 3/4” layer (will be stamped on).
- Pear Pizzazz:
- 5 1/4” x 4”.
- 4 3/4” x 3 1/2”.
- Whisper White: 4 1/2” x 3 1/4”.
Stamp the Backgrounds:
- On the smaller Smoky Slate layer, stamp the flower and leaves randomly around the edge using Smoky Slate ink.
- Next, stamp on the white layer. Start with Rococco Rose Ink and stamp the flowers. Masking the flowers, stamp the leaves around them using Pear Pizzazz ink.
- For more detailed directions, see this masking tutorial.
- Lastly, stamp the “You Are The Best” sentiment in the upper right hand corner using Smoky Slate ink.
Make your Flower Feature:
- On a scrap of White, stamp your flower using Black ink. Color it in as shown using Rococco Rose and Petal Pink Markers (or any lighter pink marker).
- Fussy-cut out the flower.
- TIP: Always start with your smallest layers first and work down.
- Adhere the stamped white layer to the green layer. Likewise, adhere that to the stamped Smoky Slate layer, and then that to the larger green layer.
- Now is the time to wrap 12” of twine around the bottom of this thick layer twice.
- Next, adhere the twined layers to your cardbase.
- Lastly, attach your Flower Feature using dimensionals.
