Happy Saturday crafty friends,
Today I am over on the ShimmerzPaints.com blog sharing my latest design team creation.
Here's a look at my completed card. It is an A2, top folding card base from some Parakeet Bazzill cardstock. I then used a piece of whit cardstock for my mat. I brushed on a combination of some Marigold and Bumbly Bee Shimmerz Paints to create the shimmery Golden background.
Here's a closer view of the background. The picture doesn't accurately capture the two shades but they are there!
Next, I went to work creating my flowers. I cut them out of plain white cardstock and then painted the die cuts with my Corney Flower Blue Shimmerz Paint and Honeymoon Inklingz. I then staggered and layered the two sizes of die cuts to give the flower some fullness. I slightly curled the petals to give them some added dimension. For the leaves, I started again with plain white cardstock and then painted them with a combination of Olive U Truly Inklingz and Green Olive Shimmerz Paint.
I then created the SVG file for the pretty decorative frame and then layered that along with the flowers to my mat. Here you can see I added some pearl embellishments for a little extra flair.
I then used the Bloom Where planted sentiment from the Hello Happiness Stampz set and stamped my sentiment onto a cross stitched square die. I then cut out another cross stitched die from some green cardstock for an additional layer. I mounted both of those onto my card.
Here is one last look at my completed card. I think it turned out so vibrant and pretty. I think the recipient is really going to enjoy it.
