Anthony's Paper Craft February 2019 New Release Blog Hop - Floral Background 2

Hello everyone and welcome to the first Anthony's Paper Craft Blog Hop of 2019!!  

I am once again teaming up with some of the other design team members -

Debra (Meticulosity),
Mary Kay (MKW Cards) and

to show you guys some of the new sets being released by Anthony's Paper Craft on February 2, 2019.  This is an amazing release filled with several beautiful floral images, a new coffee set, a set of owls, some new tiles....and more.    

For this hop I used Floral Background 2, the link of which will be added on Feb. 1, and which is also one of my favorites. 

I started by stamping Floral Background 2 with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock.  I then used my stitched rectangle die to cut the image out.

I then colored in - very lightly and quickly - the stems and leaves of the flowers using my Key Lime Ultra Fine BIC Marker.

Next, I colored in the flowers with my Pink Flamingo BIC Marker.

Before I dealt with the centers of the flowers, I made my card base by adhering a piece of decorative paper to my card front.  I went with a light pink so the focus was on the flowers.

Then I cut a piece of pink fun foam, adhered this behind my Floral Background 2 image and then adhered it to the card front.

I could have used the "Thanks A Bunch" sentiment that comes with the set but I wanted to make this card more for an everyday card.  So I pulled out a "hello" die that I had in my stash from Top Dog Dies and I cut each piece.

Next, I adhered the two pieces to the upper right of the card front.  I am not really a fan of sentiments in this space but it really works for this card.

And, lastly, I adhered some yellow seed beads.  I place the card in a box top, applied some glue to the center of the flowers and placed the beads on top.  Once they dry I will remove the excess and put them back in the bag.  

Here is a close-up of the inside of the flowers once the beads were dry.  

And here is the final card again.  

I hope you enjoyed this post and card.  I think you guys are going to love all the new releases on February 1st.
