Hex-Gem Create Friendship Birthday Wishes
I recently purchased Gina K. Designs Create Friendship Bundle. This card uses the layering stencils, which were really easy to create with.
I picked some pink and blue colors for the flowers, with a charcoal for the center of the largest. I ink blended a deeper color in the flower centers. The leaves were ink blended with two colors to give some depth and shading. The images were cut out with the coordinating die. Low loft sticky back foam was added to the back for dimension.
I had recently received the Spellbinders Hex-Gem dies and decided to use on of them for the background of the flower arrangement. It was cut from white cardstock and dry embossed with oxford embossing folder for additional visual interest. The flower arrangement was adhered in the lower left of the hex by removing the backing paper on the foam.
Since the center of the flowers were a charcoal color I decided to use a panel of Gina K. Designs Slate cardstock and cut it with a stitched rectangle die. The hexagon focal image panel was adhered in place with liquid glue. Low loft foam tape was added to the back of the slate panel and it was adhered to a white top folding A2 cardbase.
The sentiment was stamped on a scrap of slate cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed white. It was cut down with a sentiment label die and adhered in place with foam tape.
The final embellishment was to scatter a few white pearls around the flowers and Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen was added to the petals. I also decided to add blue pearls to the center of the small blue flowers.
