Today I'm sharing a card that I made for a special friend's birthday a couple of weeks ago. I used the lovely All That You Are stamp set that has a large floral line image that is fabulous for all types of colouring. I used my favourite Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers, but it would also be lovely water coloured too.
I started by embossing the front of the thick Whisper White card base with the Subtle embossing folder. The image was stamped on a piece of Whisper White that was cut with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits and then coloured with Calypso Coral, Lovely Lipstick, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends. I layered it onto Melon Mambo card stock and then popped up the panel on the card base.
The greeting from the All That You Are stamp set was heat embossed in white on Melon Mambo and then double cut to the size I wanted with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits. I added some rhinestones and a tiny butterfly to finish.
For the inside I die cut a stitched rectangle for the writing panel and then stamped part of the floral image on the side, and the birthday greeting at the bottom. The finished panel was layered onto a Melon Mambo mat.
Thanks to Peggy Noe for the inspiration for this card.
