Shimmery pigment ink is such a pretty addition to floral cards.  For today’s project I used Delicata’s Sapphire Blue ink to add pretty floral shadowed accents to a thank you card.

Delicata Ink is a beautiful pigment ink with a little bit of subtle shimmer that comes in a variety of gorgeous, rich colors.

I thought the Sapphire Blue would go well with light gray, so I started off by stamping a few of the flower shadows from Hampton Art’s Flower Joy stamp set onto the front of a gray notecard.  I used my We R Memory Keepers Precision Press to make sure I got perfect placement.  I used both sizes of flower and stamped them down the front of the card for a total of 5 flowers.  Uneven numbers tend to be more “pleasing to the eye”.

After stamping the flowers, I stamped some of the other flowers in the set onto some vellum with Versamark Ink.  I heat embossed them with silver embossing powder and cut them out.

For the sentiment, I chose the Thank You from Avery Elle’s Big Greetings stamp set.  I stamped it onto a circle die cut using black ink.  I positioned it over to the left so I could trim off the right side.  Any circle die will do.  Just measure it around the sentiment to get the best fit before cutting it out.

I assembled the vellum flowers offset over the blue ones using small foam squares from 3L Scrapbook Adhesives.  I arranged the sentiment first against the right side of the card so everything would fit properly.

I added some Nuvo Simply White drops to fill in the empty spots.

It’s a little difficult to see the pretty shimmery blue in the photo, but in real life it’s subtle and looks great against the translucent vellum flowers.  Perfect for clean and elegant cards.  Thanks so much for joining me today!
