A couple of weeks ago, I had to create a Birthday Card for a friend. As I had a lot of stuff sitting on my desk from a previous project, I decided to use what I could see & started out caseing a card from the Catalogue, Page 119, but that was as far I went. as my card sort of ended up developing a little, well a lot, but I was happy with it.
I started out by stamping the flower outline in Mint Macaron Ink. The inside of the flowers were stamped in the same colour but stamped off once onto scrap paper. The middle of the flower was stamped in Hello Honey. The stems & leaf outlines were stamped using Old Olive. Again, I stamped off once prior to stamping the inside of the leaves.
As I thought it would be a little bare, I decided to stamp 2 more images & filled in the spaces by randomly stamping the smaller flower around the card using Blushing Bride Ink.
A piece of DSP from English Garden was cut & adhered to the side of the card prior to wrapping a piece of Old Olive Baker’s Twine down the join & tying a small bow.
As I wanted the sentiment to pop, I stamped it direct onto the Whisper White in Melon Mambo before adhering to the Base Card – Old Olive, but showing a small amount down both sides.
To complete the card, I adhered small Pearls to the centre of the Pink Flowers.
Don’t forget to use your catalogue for ideas & inspiration.
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
