Hello everyone, last week my best friend had her birthday and we all piled around for dinner and to celebrate it with her and family. It was a great night lots of fun and laughter however we had strict instructions – no presents allowed. Well a card and flowers aren’t presents are they?
This is the card I made for her and I need to thank Jacque Williams for her YouTube on this technique. For the technique I started with very vanilla cardstock and then got out my sponges and the following inks: sweet sugarplum, peekaboo peach, cajun craze, rich razzleberry and crumb cake. I completed my first layer of crumb cake and then dry embossed using a retired embossing folder that I love. I finished the rest of the sponging, lightly stamped over it with versamark and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I had planned to use copper but gold was a better fit for the colour combination. The flower is made using the flower shop punch out of rich razzleberry cardstock and the botanicals thinlits and assembled with glue dots. I assembled the card onto an early espresso card base with a rich razzleberry mat. The sentiment came from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set stamped in crumb cake on very vanilla cardstock. To finish the card I used gold ribbon (non stampin’up in this instance) and pearls.
The insert is using three of the colours from the card front stamped with the timeless textures stamp set. Other items used were trimmer, scoring tool, bone folder, glue dots, dimensionals, heat gun.
The card went down a treat and now I need to teach my friend the technique! I hope you’ve enjoyed this card and stop by soon.
