This card was made for an Australian friend for her birthday.
The focal image is Gina K Designs Dogwood and Butterfly set, and the sentiment is from Gina K Designs Birthday Greetings set. The colouring was done with Copics – my third time using Copics, and the black frame was made on the Silhouette. It is Design #41360, for those who will want to know. It is called “Fancy Flourish Frame with Mat”. I ‘ungrouped’ it because I didn’t want the mat.
I stamped an extra set of flowers and coloured the same as the main focal image. Then coloured and carefully cut out the larger flower, and added it with pop-dots. Then added Stardust Stickles to further highlight that flower.
The background was handmade also – the branch is also from the Dogwood and Butterfly set. I stamped it randomly, then sponged around the edges, then lightly in the middle of the card (as it would mostly be covered). Then I used Stickles Stardust to place tiny dots of sparkle on the ‘flowers’ of each branch.
I didn’t have any matching pearls, so used some white pearls, and coloured them with the same Copics used for the flowers.
Once finished, the topper was added to white cardstock.
A little time consuming, but a relatively easy card to make.
