Pretty Potted Floral Birthday

Hello Sweet Friends!  Julie here to share a Mixed Media birthday card using the Pretty Potted Florals  Clear Stamp Set (NinaB Designs) and Long Stem Silhouettes Clear Stamp Set (designed by Korin Sutherland)  - both available from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.

To create this card- stamp the Pretty Potted Florals image with archival black ink and watercolor with water based markers.  Die cut and mount onto black cardstock.

Use a sponge dauber with dijon ink and a flourish stencil for the background, mask the horizontal strip, apply white picket fence distress stain to tone down the background around the masking, score  a few lines near the horizontal strip before trimming and mounting onto black cardstock.

Mount the background panel and horizontal strip onto black cardstock, mount onto the white card base and add the floral image panel with dimensional foam.

Heat emboss the sentiment from Long Stem Silhouettes with white embossing powder onto black cardstock, create the banner by hand and add to the card front with dimensional foam.

To finish off the card, use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the floral petals as well as the background panel and add the pearl to the flower center. 

Thanks for stopping by- hugs and I hope all of you have a blessed week, sweet friends!
