I was asked to make a 70th card for a lady – the brief…..pink and girly! It was to be handed to the lady rather than posted which meant I could pile all sorts of embellishments on top and not worry too much about making a box for mailing it :).
The main focal image is from the freebie set from Creative Stamping magazine, I stamped the lady in the frame and coloured it with ProMarkers and a bit of Distress Ink. She is layered on pink card and then on a black scalloped die-cut. A little glitter pen makes her diamond choker sparkle nicely.
One of the smaller floral stamps from the same set was used to add the random pattern over the pink panel. I then cut out a square from the middle of this panel, embossed it with a floral embossing folder and raised the outer part like a frame on top of this. I edged the inner square with a black marker which unfortunately bled through the base card so I had to make a special inner to hide it! I say ‘special’ ‘cos it’s an 8×8 card so one piece of A4 paper wouldn’t fit the inside of the card, I had to extend it with an extra panel and some sticky ribbon!
I chose three flowers from my stash which I had made earlier with Spellbinder templates, added a green flourish and a couple of heart-shaped stick-pins along with a small ribbon rose and dotted them with some Stickles for a bit more bling.
