Hello and welcome! Today I have a card which I had made in hurry for my sister’s birthday. My parents, who usually bought a birthday card for her couldn’t get one this time – and I had to make one for her in a hurry… sigh…if only I had the forethought of making one sooner. Now, it isn’t that the card doesn’t look nice, but that it does fall short of what I would have liked to make if I had enough time. So, sorry sis.. you’ll get a better one next time! 😀
So, anyway, coming to the card –
Sorry for the lack in quality of the photo, its not the best weather for clicking photos today..
So, I started with stamping the flowers and leaves, two sets of Simon Says Stamp stamps, More Spring Flowers and Even More Spring Flowers, on the cardstock. I wasn’t going for very detailed coloring, so I stamped them in VersaFine Onyx black ink, and colored them in Zig brush markers. I then fussy cut them all out.
For the background, I used Altenew Beautiful Bergenia embossing folder on cream cardstock, and then swiped Altenew Antique Gold ink on top. I then adhered this on a white card base. Arranging the floral and leafy images on top in layers, I thought it might be better to choose the sentiment too, since I wanted it to cover a little bit of the card so I could tuck my florals underneath.
I chose a sentiment from Clearly Besotted Scrumptious Script and heat embossed it twice in gold, to achieve some dimension, and then cut out the sentiment. I also added a bit of gold embossing dots to the centers of the main flowers, since I wasn’t going to add any more extra sparkle on them. 😀
I then adhered all the pieces together, using a couple of scrap cardstock strips to add dimension to the sentiment piece. Finally, I also added a few off white half-pearls to add some embellishing.
And that finished my card. I’m also joining these challenges –
Thank you so much for stopping by! 🙂
