When I know that the person I’m making a card for will really appreciate the effort that goes into making it, I do tend to push myself to try something different. And that’s what happened with this card.
The card base was cut to size and the front was die cut on a curve. A matching curved panel was created with the bottom corners rounded.
I mixed a touch of Distress ink with some texture paste, spread it through a brick stencil on the inside of the card and left it to dry.
The flowers were stamped, coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut out. The leaves were stamped on the curved panel and coloured; some Distress ink was blended around the edges to soften the harsh white of the panel.
Once the card base was dry, I mounted the curved panel on the front and popped the flowers up on some foam tape. The flower buds were coated with Wink of Stella and I tried out the pico embellisher shimmer for the first time on the centres of the flowers; not sure whether it was the dark Copic or the stamping ink that bled in one spot where the shimmer went over the line, but that got disguised with one of many sequins. The sentiment was created with a Dymo labeller.
