Here's a card that could be used for any occasion - for me, I'm headed home to celebrate my Dad's 85th birthday next weekend. This is the card for him.
Note: Finished card size is 5” x 5”
|Cajun Craze (SU!)||5” x 10”, scored at 5"|
|Sunny Garden DSP (SU!)||4 7/8” x 4 7/8”|
|Peach Parfait (SU!)||4 1/2” x 4 1/2”|
|Stamper's Select White (PaperTrey Ink)||3 1/2” x 3 1/2” - 2 pieces|
|Memento Rich Cocoa (Tsukineko)|
|Music Expressions (SU!)|
|Lacey Squares Dies (Spellbinders)|
|Grand Calibur (Spellbinders)|
|COPIC Markers (Imagination International)|
|SPICA Markers (Imagination International)|
|Scotch ATG 714 (3M)|
|Rotary trimmer with straight blades (Fiskars)|
Stamp the image in brown on each piece of white card stock, and color with COPICs - color one image entirely; color the violin and bird on the second image. Here are the colors I used:
- Violin: YR000, YR14
- Bird: B0000, B00, B02
- Leaves/Dragonfly: G21, G24
- Flowers/Butterfly: Y32, Y35, Y38, RV0000, RV000, RV32
Then, enhance the colored images with the glitter pens. I used Sand, Peach, Lemon, Orange, Gold, Baby Blue, Melon, and Mint. (Yes, I glittered the WHOLE image!)
Cut out the second violin and bird, and mount them on the base image using foam tape.
Mount the patterned paper with on the base card.
Cut and emboss the largest lacey square, and mount it on the patterned paper
Finish up by mounting image in the ceter of the square die-cut.
Inside I put a white panel, measuring 4 7/8" x 4 7/8", and stamped a birthday greeting.
Thanks for stopping by!
