Birthday flowers

Time for yet another birthday card.  This is for a friend whose favourite colour is orange.  I don’t “do” orange, so I thought I would struggle, but I found a lovely card here, and have cased it and put my own spin on it.

Danuta Birthday

Inks: Wild Honey, Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade and Black Soot Distress Inks
Cardstock:  White, green and orange
Stamp: Darkroom Door Wildflowers Vol 2
Spellbinders: Classic Rectangles Large, Les Papillions
Embossing folder: M-bossabilities Splendid (Side A)
Other: Dimensionals, Double sided tape, Glue

Using the Bulrush stamp from Wildflowers and Black Soot ink, I stamped a larger piece of white cardstock , stamping off to add dimension.  I then cut the “best” part of the picture, using the largest of the Classic Rectangles die.  Image was then sponged with Wild Honey, Dried Marigold, and Spiced Marmalade inks, and the edge sponged with Black Soot ink.  The image was then layered on orange and green cardstock with double sided tape.  The sentiment was stamped using Spiced Marmalade ink, and layered on orange and green cardstock with foam tape.

Danuta BirthdayI embossed a piece of white cardstock with the A side of the Splendid embossing folder, and sponged this in Spiced Marmalade.    The butterfly was cut using Les Papillions die.

Bye for now,
