Natural Beauty

Hello there and welcome to my blog  :)  Today I have another of my Chocolate Baroque design samples to share with you, I think it's one of my favourites out of all of them.  I love the natural and vintage feel of this card, and the sentiment is lovely too.  I have used CB sets Words of Love and Belle Flowers; Watercolour pencils, Distress Ink, sepia Versafine ink, copper marker pen; embossing folder.

I stamped the Belle Flowers onto a piece of white card in sepia ink, then trimmed the card to size.  I coloured the flowers with watercolour pencils and water, then blended DI around the edges.   I wrapped a piece of hessian around the bottom of the panel.   I created a mat by using a copper pen around the edge of a piece of card cut slightly bigger than the floral panel.  I then embossed a piece of Kraft card, blended DI around the edges, and matted and layered them all onto the base card.

I stamped several small hearts onto white and Kraft card, and cut them out.  I stamped the sentiment onto Kraft card and cut it out as a pennant, then blended DI around the edges.  

 I attached the sentiment and hearts to the card with dimensional glue.

I really enjoyed making this lovely card.  I think it's a good worker card that can be used for all sorts of occasions and for male or female cards.  The colour scheme and sentiment could easily be changed to suit the recipient.  Thank you for visiting my blog today, I hope you enjoyed this post and will come back soon  :)  


  1. I love this stamp because one can do so much with it. Love the colouring because it feels woodsy to me. Great card for any occasion and for a man or woman
