spellbinders dainty florals a la marimekko

Catching a folk art vibe from Spellbinders Dainty Florals Etched die, I went a little Marimekko for this card design.

Inkystamp Alles im Rahmen stamp
heart die

Die cut 20 (yep, 20) of the white stems and adhered them to black CS in a folk artsy pattern. Then I had the darndest time figuring out what to do with it! As usual, I couldn't cover up what I'd just created.

Now neon colors are far from folk artsy, but I felt I needed them to go with this B/W design. So I die cut a few of the sweet florals and adhered them to a die cut heart which holds my sentiment. Since the heart is popped up the florals are also raised off the card a bit so they don't get too lost on the busy BG. Cuz like I said, I couldn't bear to cover any more of it up ;)

A bit of twine across the top fold finished it off. Hope you likey. Thanks again to Team Spellbinders for the fun little florals to create with. I'm taking them over to:
Pinspirational - Anything Goes for their 6th Anniversary!
Kreativtanten - Anything Goes
a2z Scrapbooking - Flower Power
Happy Little Stampers - Anything goes with Dies for April

Beautiful black and white background. The neon colors of your raised flowers were perfect to complement the black and white. So glad you joined us at A2Z Scrapbooking.
