Accented Birthday

September 27, 2018

Today’s card was made as a special order for my Mum to give to a friend of hers.  I embossed Granny Apple Green card using the Tufted Dynamic Embossing Folder.  This time instead of spritzing with water, I spritzed with a mixture of Frost White Shimmer Paint and rubbing alcohol (Isopril in Australia).  This gave a hint of shimmer to the card when it was dry.  I don’t think you can see it in the photos but it is there.  I attached Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon to either side of the embossed card before attaching to scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.  Once the embossed card was attached, I tied the ribbon in a bow.  I cut Whisper White card using the largest scalloped square from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and attached it to the card front.  I stamped the floral image from the Accented Blooms stamp set twice onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured one image completely and just a few of the flowers on the second one using Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Rich Razzleberry and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends I cut out one complete image and just the select sections from the second image – the centre of the Cherry Cobbler flower, one Rich Razzleberry small flower, one Cherry Cobbler small flower and the smaller of the yellow flowers.   I attached the full image to the Whisper White scalloped square.   I decided to use my new Take Your Pick tool, selecting the large stylus to give the individual cut pieces a little extra dimension before attaching them to the full image using mini Dimensionals.  I stamped “happy birthday” from the Perennial Birthday stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I punched the greeting using the Tailored Tag Punch.  The greeting is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  For the final touch I added some Basic Rhinestones to the centres of some of the flowers.

I kept the inside of the card pretty simple, stamping the leaf image from the Accented Blooms stamp set across the bottom of Whisper White card.  I coloured the leaves using the dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend before attaching the panel to the inside of the card.

Bye for now,
