Happy Birthday Blossoms

Hello! Rachel here today with a fun birthday card!


I started my card by cutting out a Wonky Stitched Rectangle which would become to the focal point of my card. I stamped my image onto it and then used my Copics to color it. I decided to branch out and use a color combo that I don't normally reach for. I used V12, V15, V17, and V09 for my blossoms. I was a little worried because V09 and V17 are extremely dark, but I like how it looks once it's all blended and dried. I used my old stand-by of YG95, YG97, and YG99 for the leaves and E55, E57, and E59 for the stem. I finished it off with my typical halo of C00, C01, and C03 around the image to make it look 3 dimensional.

I set aside my image and cut and folded a white card base. I used some Fog Gray ink to ink up my Roses All Over stamp and stamped it onto my base for a subtle background. For my sentiment, I cut a black banner and stamped in Versamark ink. I heat embossed in white and folded the ends under.

I adhered my focal image directly onto my card base with a tape runner. (I'm trying to keep it relatively flat for mailing, so I skipped the foam tape for this piece of the card.) I adhered my banner on top with a tiny bit of foam tape for some subtle dimension.

That's all for today! Thanks for joining me!
