Birthday Floral Card

Hi Friends:  Today's creations are all about cards being created for a donation to my church.  Here's the birthday floral card.  Hope you enjoy it - see below for process, challenges, and products used. Thanks for taking a peek!

Full Card:

Detail to show the shimmer from the Wink of Stella pen:


I started with an A2 card base.  I cut 2 panels using my Stitched Rectangle dies - the larger from the Razzleberry paper and the smaller from black card-stock and layered them on the card base.  On a panel of white card-stock, I used the Stampin' Up! Awash with Flowers set and stamped the flower / stem / leaf outlines in black ink, then overstamped with the fill-in stamps using the Stampin' Up! colors listed below.  I added some ink splatters using the same colors.  Next, I cut the stamped panel using the next smaller size stitched rectangle die, added the baker's twine, then adhered it to the card front with fun foam.  On black card-stock, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink, then added white embossing powder and heat set it.  I cut the sentiment using the Stampin' Up! Bitty Banners framelits die and added it to the card front.  To finish the card, I added shimmer to the flowers with my Wink of Stella clear pen.
