At last - a card!


Ingredients:

Card/Paper: Almost Amethyst, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Tea Party Designer Paper
Ink: Almost Amethyst, Certainly Celery, Whisper White Craft Ink
Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly, Oval All, Vintage Labels
Other: White Gel Pen, Certainly Celery 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon
Card Size: 13.5cm x 13.5cm (approx 5" x 5")

Method:

Hope you were sitting down when you discovered there was a card on my blog! Not much card making has been going on here for a while, so as I made one yesterday I thought I ought to pop it on. This is for my eldest daughter's birthday tomorrow.

The background is both sides of the same piece of designer paper. I used the Eyelet Border punch to make the lacey strip behind the ribbon. On the punched oval I used my Certainly Celery marker to ink up just the flower part of the Oval All stamp, so that I could then stamp the Happy Birthday in place of the greeting that should have been there.

For the three little green flowers at the top of the card, I stamped the single flower from Flight of the Butterfly in Whisper White Craft ink onto the designer paper to give me a white base - onto which I coloured with a Certainly Celery marker, and finally outlined with a white gel pen.

I love this card! Especially the color combo! My favorite for several years has been Old Olive and Eggplant. This is very much the same but softer! I love it!
Thank you for your inspiration!
