And here is my card:
I went with a CAS- ish style here but with a little bit of stenciling and inked edges.
The pretty orchid stamp is from the Penny Black set Happy Together. Stamped once on this card front, then again on a scrap piece of white card stock so I could fussy cut the larger blossoms and leaves to adhere to the card over the script stamping. I colored with Copic markers.
On the background I used part of Stampin Up's French Script stamp with Antique Linen ink. Then adhered the butterfly which I embellished with some sticky rhinestones. This butterfly is part of Penny Black's Flowing Butterfly die, I only wanted to use one of the butterflies so I trimmed it off after die cutting. It's been cut out white card stock but I inked it with Blueprint Sketch ink.

Stickles glitter was placed in the flower centers for some more sparkle. Then I used the tile stencil from this Stampers Anonymous set, also with Blueprint Sketch ink. Before adhering the card front to the base, I used one of Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches dies.
The sentiment is from the PB set Happy Wishes.
Another beautifully crafted card Ellie. I actually had a blue Orchid for my Birthday last year, but it reverted back to white after it's winter interlude.ReplyDelete
