Today I’m sharing another special commission with you. I created this card using Painted Poppies and Floral Essence, plus a few punches.
It a special Birthday card for one of my regular class attendees and is based on this card I made previously.
The marble effect background is from the only Ink Pad I used on the project, Melon Mambo. The image is from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set, part of a 10% discounted Bundle with the Painted Labels Dies. Take a look at the Annual Catalogue to see all the available Bundles.
One of the dies from the Bundle, also cut in Melon Mambo is underneath the flowers. Highland Heather Sprig Punch shapes are also behind the flowers.
Floral Essence and the matching Perennial Flower Punch create the pretty flowers. A Blender Pen colours the flowers slightly by dragging the ink from the centre.
Well Said provides the sentiment and these are cut using the Classic Label Punch, then placing them in the ‘wrong’ way and creating a banner end. For the layers, these are cut using the Triple Banner Punch.
As the card was being hand-delivered, there were a lot more layers than I would create for regular post.
My favourite ribbon to colour, the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding has the colouring treatment with a Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend.
Finally, Wink of Stella is added to the centre of the flowers and a few Rhinestones for some sparkle.
