Hello there friends!
I hope you are doing well. I shall dive straight in and announce that it is yes, you have guessed it, another birthday card for my project this week (not a huge surprise given the title of this post!). This time for my sweet friend Jan. One day I shall stop apologising for birthday cards, as we cardmakers tend to make more of those than anything else, so the law of average says…..
So without further adieu, today’s card:
I actually started colouring this panel on holiday but only managed a few blooms, so decided to finish it off for Jan’s birthday. Once I had finished the colouring with my Ziggies, I wondered how I could change it up a little from just having it stamped on white card as a one layer card. So I decided to cut it out leaving a small white border. Nothing too daring here….LOL.
I then masked off the top section of the A2 base card and laid down some pink dye ink direct from the ink pad. I didn’t really want to add another layer of card, so this seemed like a good option and I just don’t use my inks enough *sigh*. I then stamped some dots from my Washi Patterns stamp set onto a strip of white card, and adhered it over the centre of the panel. Not sure why I didn’t just stamp them directly on to the white card base…. hmmm.
All that was left for me to do was pop up the die cut floral using foam tape, add a few sequins and lastly a sentiment, which was heat embossed with white powder.
I like how it turned out, not hugely dissimilar to a one-layer card, but a slight variation none the less 🙂
Thank you so much for stopping by. I wish you all a very happy weekend and I will be back soon with another project.
