Hello and welcome! Today I have a card I made for my parents’ anniversary..which was more than a couple of months ago. Yeah..I forgot to write about it. But I finally remembered! So, here it is!
The lovely sunflowers are from Right at Home, a stamp set called ‘Sunflowers’. The leaves from that stamp set, however, I found to be a little smaller than I wanted, so I borrowed them from Altenew’s Beautiful Day and Peony Bouquet stamp sets. I stamped all the images I wanted and they fussy cut them.
For the background, I used alcohol inks in shades of blue, yellow and green, trimmed it and mounted it on a dark green cardstock. I also added a strip of gold foil cardstock on either edge. Finally came the sunflowers themselves.
Then came the sentiment. I wanted some dimension and sparkle on the them, so on the ‘Happy’ die cut, which is from Neat & Tangled Happy Holidays die, I stacked a few of them, heat embossed them in white first, adding a few layers of the powder to get them the nice round look. I then inked only the lower half and this time added gold embossing powder, using the heat gun to both melt and move the powder a little bit to mingle the colors in the middle. The ‘anniversary’ came from Paper Trey Ink Wet Paint stamp set, which I heat embossed in gold, trimmed and foam mounted on the card. The die, I adhered only beneath the ‘y’ and the ‘h’, to keep the rest of it floating.
To add some extra glimmer, I also added a few dots of gold embossing on the center of the flowers and also applied some Deco Art Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter Paint in gold, to give it some golden glittery shine. And that’s done!
With this card, I am joining the following challenges –
