Mondo Peony Birthday

I was doing through my stamps looking for a particular image for a friend, who never knows the stamp name, and saw these beautiful flowers from Ellen Hutson and decided to use them on a card.


I stamped them with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and left them in the MISTI. I decided to color them purple. The flower naturally comes in a light purple color, but I wanted to have a deep rich purple, so that is how I colored them with Copic Markers.


I don't have the matching dies so I fussy cut around the images, which was pretty easy to do. These are large flowers and to make a huge impact on the front of card. I decided to add some visual interest behind the flowers and cut a panel of white cardstock using a scalloped rectangle. It was adhered to a side folding white cardbase with Simon Says Stamp Big Mama Foam Tape.


The two flowers were adhered together where they overlapped with liquid glue and then foam tape was added to the back. The leaves of the stamp set are widely spaced and I didn't have enough room on the cardfront to accommodate that design, so I cut they apart and adhered them more closely together. They were added behind the flower with liquid glue and then the flower were adhered in place by removing the backing paper on the foam.


The sentiment was stamped onto black cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed white. It was cut into a banner using a Pink & Main Sentiment Strip and adhered over the lower flower with liquid glue.


The final embellishment was to scatter a few purple sequins around the flowers and add Bright Gold Nuvo Crystal Drops to the center of the flower.
