Hello and Welcome
Today's card was made for my BFF so
of course it had to be 'Special' and her birthday
is just a few days before mine.
I was keeping this for a challenge that I thought
fitted in with my card above and I found that at
Seize the Birthday for their current challenge to use
I recently bought the Retired SU Botanical Blooms Set
and a few of you would have seen me use it before.
It was perfect for this card with all the dies.
I wanted the background to be a little subtle and
knew I had some patterned vellum in my stash. Perfect!
I know she likes browns/copper colours so I went with that
and some gorgeous teal card stock that was purchased
when I was staying with her a while back.
I cut out a number of flowers and stamens
and the leaves from gold card stock and some
painted paper using Rustic Brown Metallic Paint.
I inked the stamped centres with Tim's Gathered Twigs.
I decided to add a strip of embossing on the side
from Couture Creations. Adhered it to my card base
with the vellum and gold ribbon from Christina Re.
Sentiment is from STAMPlorations Fluttery Set
heat embossed in gold with gold thread
added to the back and popped.
Finished with a tiny flower on the side,
