Hello and welcome! We have a new challenge on Seize the Birthday blog. The challenge is to make birthday projects, and this time, since we do not have any ‘topping’, its an ‘Anything Goes’ challenge.
I made this card for my sister’s birthday, which was a couple of days ago –
I used the flower bunch image from Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Flowers stamp set for this. After stamping the images in a light grey ink on watercolor paper, I watercolored them using Prima Watercolor pencils. I then used Zig brush pens for touching up some darker areas, and also adding the lines on the leaves. I used distress inks for coloring the background.
I also added a few little splatters of brown on the watercolor piece. Once dried, I also added glitter using a glitter pen over the flowers and a few leaves. I trimmed the piece and adhered it over a white card base. I added a few lines as a frame, using silver and white gel pens.
The sentiment came from Neat & Tangled Journaling Alphas die. I used the same white cardstock for the top, which I stacked over a few pieces of shades of green, going from the darkest green cardstock at the bottom to the lightest on top. I then adhered this to the card. I added some shine on the sentiments as well, using the same glitter pen.
Finally, for embellishing, I added a few sequins – transparent, silver and one with a pearly blueish shine.
For the envelope, I used the same die and stamp. I stamped the image using shades of pink and purple, and for the die cut, I used a gradient of green, pink and purple, out of which I die cut the letters and adhered over the envelope.
