Birthday Wishes Bouquet
I really like the digital stamps created by Sophia J. Caldwell and available on Etsy. I told my friend about them and she purchased a few that were different from what I had purchased previously. This card is one of those images.
I printed the image onto Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock using a laser printer. It was colored with Copic Markers. When the coloring was complete the image was cut down using a stitched rectangle. The rectangle was matted with black cardstock and then adhered to a top folding white cardbase using dotliner adhesive.
Since this was a very simple image I decided to add some visual interest by dry embossing it with the Stampin' Up Subtle Embossing Folder and liked how it turned out.
There was a lot of space at the bottom of the image. I pulled out My Favorite Things Best Wishes die and used only the "wishes." It was cut three times from black cardstock and adhered together with liquid glue. The secondary sentiment was stamped onto a scrap of black cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed white. It was cut into a flagged strip and adhered above the wishes using a thin strip of foam tape.
I had completed the card and even taken photographs, but I really didn't like the symmetry of only two flowers so I printed the image again, colored the daisy, and fussy cut it out, along with a couple of leaves. The flower was adhered with foam tape and the leaves with some liquid glue. I liked the way this looked much better. You'll
have to tell me what you think, both pictures are below.
