This week, I'm taking my inspiration from the card above on the inside back cover of the Holiday Catalogue. It uses the Hung with Care host set, but I have chosen to make a birthday card using the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set instead.
As you can see, I've stayed close to the layout of the sample card. The base card is Gray Granite, which is a fabulous warm neutral and fast becoming a favourite. I've stamped the Buffalo Check in Gray Granite on Whisper White and added a narrow border of Berry Burst to give it some pop.
The large stitched oval has been dry embossed with the Subtle Dynamic embossing folder to provide extra texture. The flowers on the bouquet were die cut from watercolour paper and I spritzed them with Frost White shimmer mist to which I added a couple of drops of Berry Burst re-inker. It resulted in a variety of different shades of sparkly pink in the flower clusters. Small circles of Sparkle Glimmer were added on the reverse to the flower centres.
I wrapped a piece of Burlap ribbon around the stems and tied the Baker's Twine bow before adhering the stem to the embossed oval. The flower clusters were then added to the stem and popped up at different heights. I created my own version of the 3D word by adhering multiple layers together with the Sparkle Glimmer on top.
For the inside I have a double mat, echoing the narrow border of Berry Burst from the front. I stamped a stem from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Old Olive and added a leftover flower cluster to it. At the bottom is a strip of the spotted Gray Granite designer paper sitting on the deorative border created with a die from the Bouncing Baby Framelits. The greeting is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.
