Good morning crafting friends! Do you have trouble not being able to sleep and just get up and start crafting? Well, last night was that kind of night. Insomnia ruled the entire night. So I got up and created this card for a friend's upcoming birthday.
I began by creating my focal panel in white card stock using a Spellbinders Triple Floral die. Next, I covered the cut out design on all four edges with Post-It notes. I wanted to use the emboss resist
technique in this project so I stamped the feathery image on both sides of my panel in Versamark ink and then embossed it with white EP. Finally I sponged over the stamped images and around the panel with Memento Sweet Plum ink to create the emboss resist effect. The sentiment is from GKD Stately Flowers 8 and was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
The flowers were made by stamping images from HC Striped Sun Kissed Fleur on vellum, embossed and then cut with HC Sun Kissed Fleur dies. Before attaching them to the focal panel, I prepared my base card in white card stock and layered it with coordinating plum colored paper. The focal panel was adhered to the base and as a final step the flowers were popped on.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and check out this project. Hope it inspires you to create!
