Oh JOY! I need to share with you a couple of tricks for using the Blossoms in Bloom dies. To do this, I created a card using lots of color contrast. I was inspired by some blacklight photos that I saw recently. So here is my card Blossoms in Bloom – Color Contrast.

Bright colored floral outline on black

And here is the 2nd card I made Floral outline in pink on black background

The best part about these cards is — NO GLUE — you heard that right. I used the NEW Adhesive Sheets. Clean hands. Hallelujah!

MEASUREMENTS (Supplies and Links are at the end)

  • Basic Black Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ 
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 4″ x 5-1/4″ (Card #1) 3-3/4″ x 5″ (Card #2)
  • Flirty Flamingo Cardstock
  • Daffodil Delight Cardstock
  • Grapefruit Grove Cardstock

PIECES AND PARTS (use any die-cutting and embossing machine)


  1. Apply cardstock to Adhesive Sheet.  HINT: Adhesive Sheet is 6″ x 12″. You need about 4-1/4″ x 5″ for the die. I just used scraps and worked it out from there. LOL!
  2. Die-cut the thin frame from various bright cardstock colors.
  3. Flip die-cut over and apply Press’n Seal to the backside. Burnish it against the cardstock so that all pieces stick.
  4. Turn die-cut over and gently peel the die off the font of the cardstock.

COLOR AND PAPER PIECE FOCAL: (Do not remove adhesive until you are ready to apply the die-cut to the project)

  1. Add die-cut outline to Basic Black cardstock.
  2. Color with Watercolor Pencils. TIP: I colored using straight lines then went back and used small circular coloring to soften edges.
  3. OPTIONAL: Add paper piecing with liquid glue.
  4. OPTIONAL: Cut across image diagonally to get 2 cards. HINT: I did this because I decided I did not like the paper piecing. I did not have full petals on one side, so I cut them off!


  1. Stamp sentiment on cardstock (about 7″ x 1/2″) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.


  1. Layer as shown. I used Dimensional behind the card front.
  2. Grab a Whisper White envelope and add some of the extra outline pieces.
  3. Stamp your message on a piece of 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White or coordinating cardstock for the inside of the card. 

This was a fun card to make. Add the Blossoms in Bloom to your order and don’t forget to get some Adhesive Sheets (#152334).
