Hello! I made this card to send to a dear crafting friend, Sandie and now that it has long since reached her, I am sharing it! Such a charming lady filled with drive – that’s what I felt after just a few mail exchanges. And I made this card to suite that feeling I had.
I tried to make it a bright card, so, tried making it with lots of flower/leaf layering.. and I am quite happy with how it has turned out! … and I hope she liked it too!! 🙂
I kept the images ready by stamping them with distress inks, misted with water. The flowers and leaves are all from Winnie & Walter In Bloom: Victoria’s Very Merry Flowers. I had shared another card which used the leftovers from this project earlier here.
Once I decided how to arrange the florals, I proceeded to the base… which took a long time.. a very long time. In the end, I die cut the pieces using Lil Inker Designs Pointelle die and used distress paints Antiqued Bronze and Tarnished Brass. I like how the texture and mix of color makes it look like wood, but still will carry some shine with it. Once dried, I adhered it directly over the card base, then adhered the flowers on it.
For the sentiment, I used stacked up die cut pieces, which I die cut using Altenew Inline Alpha dies. The other part of the sentiment is from Avery Elle Laurels, which I heat embossed with two layers of copper embossing and one layer of clear sparkle embossing.
And extravagant card in the end..
With this card, I am joining the following challenges –
Winnie & Walter Color Combo challenge with Heather H: Anything Goes (and this is the color palette I chose)
Thanks for stopping by and come back again soon! 🙂
