Don’t you love creating for special people? I know I do, although sometimes I think I tend to overthink things & make it so hard for myself as I want the card to be just “perfect”!
My card today is just that – for a special friend & one that I saw very similar on Pinterest but put my own spin on it. I also wanted to used some of her favourite colours – Blues which I teamed up with Yellows & Browns.
I don’t have a Tutorial for you today as it “took off” in the mail before I remembered to do one, but hopefully I will be able to go by the photo.
With images from the gorgeous “Touches of Texture” Stamp Set I randomly stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla Card in Soft Sky Ink. The Dragonfly was stamped randomly in Crumb Cake Ink. I did think about colouring them too but at the last moment left them as is.
I punched a piece of Very Vanilla Card with the 2″ Circle Punch before temp adhering it to the stamped Very Vanilla Card. I then stamped the Sprig of Flowers twice over the Card in Crumb Cake before colouring the flowers with Soft Saffron Ink & the leaves with Pear Pizzazz Ink with my Blender Pen.
I wrapped a piece of Metallic Gold Thread around my finger 3 times, adhered it to the back of the punched Circle with a Mini Glue Dot before adhering the circle to the card ensuring that all my images were lined up correctly. This was then layered onto a piece of Soft Sky Card & then to the Base Card – Very Vanilla.
I stamped the “Banner” onto a piece of Very Vanilla Card in Crumb Cake Ink, stamped “Happy Birthday” from the “Birthday Banners” Stamp Set inside the Banner, again in Crumb Cake Ink & cut it out matching “Bunch of Banners” Framelits Dies. Don’t you just love it when SU! have everything “matchy matchy?”
This was adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To complete my card, I then added small Pearl Basic Jewels to the centre of the flowers & scattered a couple around the card.
I hope you had a lovely day Naomi & you liked your card.
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
