Today I’m sharing a Birthday Card I made for a friend. They were a fan of Elegant Eggplant (before it retired), so I’ve used Blackberry Bliss along with their other favourite, Crumb Cake.
Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set and the matching Eclectic Layers Thinlits create this project. The pretty background lattice shows the Blackberry Bliss layer behind.
The Crumb Cake leaves then offset the layered Blackberry Bliss flowers.
I don’t have any ribbon in Blackberry Bliss so I made my own. It’s the 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon in Whisper White that I’ve then coloured using Stampin’ Blends. They are a great way to add an extra accent in a co-ordinating colour if you don’t have what you need to hand.
Finally, three Faceted Gems in Gold create the centre of the flowers. As this card was hand-delivered, I was able to use both Dimensionals with the gems. If it was needing to go in the post, I would either stick the flowers flat, use something different for the centres, or pay extra postage.
Don’t forget to check out all of the fabulous new items in the Autumn/Winter Catalogue.
