100th Birthday Card

Hello!  I received a request to create a Happy 100th Birthday card. Although I don't know the centarian for whom this card was made, it was an honor to do so.

Here are the supplies used:

Card Stock:  GKD Pure Luxury White, Black Onyx
Stamps:   GKD Stately Flowers 1
Ink:   Memento Tuxedo Black
Dies:   Sue Wilson Petite Vinery, Cottage Cutz Double Stitched Ovals,
Other:  Swiss Dots EF, Copic markers, adhesive, dimensionals
Sentiment:  Computer generated

First and foremost I cut a layer of white card stock and computer generated my sentiment. Next I created a "window" by using an oval die, then embossed that layer with a swiss dot EF. An oval frame was created for the "window" by using a larger and smaller double stitched oval die.This layer was made to create the "window" for the poppy image. I put this aside to work on the rest of my card.

I created the base (5x7) in white card stock and layered it with black. Next, another layer was cut in white card stock, slightly smaller than the black layer. The poppy image was stamped on this layer, positioning it so that it would line up with the "window",  and colored with Copics. Then it was adhered to the black layer.

The last part of the assembly was to use dimensionals and adhere the swiss dot layer over the base card, showcasing the red poppy image.  For an accent and final touch, some vines were added in black card stock and adhered around the window frame. This completed the project.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon.
