Post 229: Floral Birthday Card

Hi folks!

How've you been? I haven't been feeling too good lately, I think it may be the flu. So have less energy to sit and create. Hopefully, it will get better in a couple of days. For now, I'd like to share a floral birthday card I made a couple of days back but wasn't able to blog about. This is a standard A2 sized top folding card. This card was my way of salvaging a card panel that I wasn't entirely happy with. I started out thinking it will be a CAS card but as the stamping progressed, I wasn't happy with the design, so I decided to stamp all over the panel and create a flowery themed card instead. I used a mix of blue and green Ranger inkpads I had (sorry don't remember which ones I used exactly), colored in with some pencil colors and in the end added a few details with a couple of zig markers. Added a few watercolored and die cut butterflies as well. The sentiment is stamped on a tag that's been watercolored and tied with some twine. 

List of Supplies:

Winnie & Walter Essentials: Audrey Cutaways
Winnie & Walter Essentials: Lana Cutaways

Hero Arts Stamp & Cut- Birthday 
Canson Watercolor Paper
Derwent Pencil Colors
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens

Here is a photo of the card:

  1. Sorry to hear you have been feeling under the weather and hope you are better soon. I love how you have salvaged the card front to make a new card with. The little tag attached to the cord is sweet idea. Thankyou for fluttering into the butterfly garden. Hugs Mrs A.

  2. Preeti, this is just lovely! So sorry you have been sick....I know how that really saps the creativity and energy. Hope you are feeling better soon. You did a magnificent job of salvaging your card front. I love the wonderful contrast of the black with the W&W Color Combo palette. The sweet watercolor tag looks wonderful with your stamped background. Thank you for your visit to my blog and your lovely comment!
