Happy Birthday with God's Beauty
I had a chance to play in my craft room last night and decided to create a card using the FabFri70 Sketch Challenge along with the Friday Mashup FM221 "Fields of Flowers" Challenge and the Seize the Birthday 08/13 Anything that Flies Challenge.
I decided to pull out a few retired sets that needed some “love” :-)
Again, if you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above challenge sites to check out the inspiration from their Design Teams as well as their wonderful galleries!
To create this card:
Stamp the floral, stem and butterfly images from the retired set, God’s Beauty using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
Use an AquaPainter™ with Classic Ink from Delightful Dijon, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry to color the images.
Carefully cut out (“fussy-cut”) each image, use a foam brush to apply ModPodge® to the butterfly image (this helps to stabilize the image and give it a bit of strength) and set aside to dry.
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Brick Wall Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and a piece of Old Olive with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.
Trim the Brick Wall embossed panel and mount onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.
Trim the Woodgrain embossed panel and mount onto the Rich Razzleberry card base.
Add the Brick Wall layered panel to the card front.
Stamp the sentiment from Express Yourself using Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.
Add the sentiment to the Brick Wall embossed panel and mount the stems, flowers and butterfly.
Use the White Gel Pen to highlight the center of the flowers and when dry, apply Crystal Effects™ to the centers.
Add a few Pearls to the corner to finish off the card.
