Hello everyone… I hope you all have a great first week in 2017! We have been having colder days on this week, and also no school because of snow. I do not like the cold, but I love the snow and the beauty of the view here in our backyard during the winter snowy days…so calm and peaceful.
In these cold days, I got to spent a moment in my craft room and created a birthday card with my new stamp, word die and paper packs. Also, I use heat embossing resist with watercolor paint to create this card.
I use the new Whimsical Wildflowers Collection and Plum Pizzazz Paper Pad from Our Daily Bread Designs. The dies I use are ODBD Custom Ornate Ovals Dies. And the sentiment is one of the new ODBD script word dies, Happy Birthday.
I not only die cut the pieces, but I also embossed them with the same dies to give extra texture on each the die cut. Check it out the details on the Ornate oval die cuts below.
I stamped and heat embossed the flower from ODBD – Seeds of Today stamp set with Ranger Gold Embossing powder. Then I colored it with my Koi watercolor paint. I picked the purple that match the paper 🙂 I added more colors when the first layer dried for the depth of colors and shadows.
Also, I added some splatters with some gold paint and brush. And then I decided to give it some sparkle using Spectrum Noir Sparkle Clear Brush. And I finished it with adding some glitter dots using Gold Stickles.
I used Tombow permanent adhesive to add the paper and ornate ovals die cuts on the card. And I used my mini Xyron sticker maker to add adhesive to the Happy Birthday Script Word Die Cut.
This card is flat even though there are 2 layers of mats on it. So it is mail-friendly. That is all about my card today. I hope you are inspired to create today 🙂 Thanks a lot for visiting me and have a fabulous, blessed day!
