Haven't posted for a couple of days - life's just busy at the moment, which is good! I'll see if I can post a couple of cards now.
This is a birthday card that I made for my friend Diane. I didn't add a Happy Birthday sentiment on the outside of the card, I put it all inside. So really this card could have been used for several occassions.
I started with a dark teal Bazzill cardstock and added a layer of SU - Very Vanilla. The next layers are the dark teal topped with K&Company - Teal Floral & Letter. The lace is from Micheals and the beautiful pleated ribbon is SU. This second layer is popped up. The third layers are SU - Chocolate Chip and BoBunny - Gabrielle Mocha Die Cut. This paper was round and had this beautiful cut edge on it - love it. This layer was popped up too.
The medallion was cut from SU - Very Vanilla using Spellbinders - Fancy Tags Two. I sponged the center with SU - Crumb Cake. The leaves are all die cut from SU - Pear Pizazz using Cheery Lynn - Fanciful Flourish and Memory Box - Tender Leaves. The little flowers are Prima Flowers.
The bird was stamped using SU - Young Vermilion and Stazon - Jet Black. I watercoloured it very softly with SU - Watercolour Crayons in Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, and Tangerine Tango. When I watercolour on cards, I always use Ink Potion # Nine because it doesn't warp the paper. I cut him out and curled him just a bit, then popped him up.
The final touches were the soft gold ribbon from the dollar store, the light blue half pearls, and the stick pin with a variety of beads.
Hope you like this card, I loved making it :)
Thanks for taking a look.
