Post 124: Floral Birthday Card


I'm so glad you've taken the time to visit me here. I truly appreciate it :) 

Today I'd like to share a floral birthday card in celebration of springThis is a side folding A2 size card with a fancy border edge. Hues of 3 colors (besides the neutrals) have been used here: greens, blues and yellows. 

Synopsis of the Process:

The Mudra mini bunch stamp and butterfly stamp was stamped in versamark watermark ink onto snippets of vellum and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. The images were colored with zig and camlin brush pens and then fussy cut. The card base was prepared by punching the doily lace pattern on the front of it using a martha stewart edge punch. The sentiment was stamped from the mudra brushed stamp set using archival ink and then the vellum flowers were arranged and then adhered onto the card front with mono liquid glue. 3 mint green colored sequins were adhered, the butterfly was also pasted near the sentiment to balance out the design and in the end some black paint splatters were made.

1. Mudra Stamps- Mini bunch
