Gotta Love Lavender

If you watched Flower Soft TV yesterday or if you checked out right here on the Flower Soft blog, you know that Flower Soft released an exciting new product. These images are fun for several reasons, one being that you can print them on whatever papers you would like and another reason is because they coordinate with Spellbinders Nestabilities. What a great match! BUT...I didn't have this particular set of Nestabilities so I hand cut my scallop heart out, showing you that it is even more versatile then you thought. By handcutting it, I wasn't able to get that great embossed edge that you get with the Nestabilities but it is still nice.
I printed mine by setting my printer on the best setting and I printed it on Core'dinations cardstock, cardstock that has a slight texture to it, making for a rather rich look. I don't often work with purple and lavender so I was excited to create with this set so I could create a purple card.
This view shows you a close-up of where I added my Flower Soft accents on the sprigs of flowers. I used the Heather Flower Soft since it has a great mix of colors. You can also see that I highlighted the edges of my cut out heart with 3-D Glitter Fashion Paint by Tulip. I like this glitter because it gives a very subtle look of glitter while letting the underneath color show through.
I also added some of the Heather Flower Soft to portions of one of the butterflies in this printable set, cut that out and added it to my card with foam tape for added dimension.

  1. This is so sweet! The embossed edge isn't really necessary since you added the border with the 3D glitter.
    Thanks for sharing! :o)

  2. I have an addiction to butterflies and I love the idea of putting flower soft on one, it looks great!
