Fab Friday 167

July 16, 2019

Today’s card uses the sketch challenge at Fab Friday for inspiration.  I stamped the long floral image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set twice onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the image using the Dark Cherry Cobbler and LIght and Dark Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends.  I cut a strip of Basic Black card using the scalloped edge die from the Stitched Be Mine Dies and attached it behind the right hand edge of the image panel.  I also attached a narrow strip of Basic Black card behind the left hand edge of the image panel.  I stamped the large circle stamp from the Beauty Abounds stamp set onto Thick Whisper White card using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I stamped the small circle image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set around the large circles using Mossy Meadow ink.  I attached the stamped floral panel onto the card front.  I stamped “happy birthday” from the Special Celebration stamp set onto Whisper White card and cut it out using one of the Layering Ovals Dies.  I cut a scalloped oval from Basic Black card using the same dies and attached the greeting before attaching to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the large circle image across the bottom of the Thick Whisper White card using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I also stamped the small circle image using Mossy Meadow ink.

To be honest, I wasn’t sure I liked this card.   However, I decided to add small Basic Rhinestones to the centres of the flowers which gave the card a bit of a lift.  Then I decided to cut some butterflies from Basic Black card using the  Butterfly Beauty Dies.  I think the addition of the butterfly to the card front, really made all the difference.  I also added one to the inside of the card.  Soooo, tell me what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
