Hello there. I wanted to share some cards with you. I was asked recently if I could make a Birthday card from a friend at my daughter’s school. I was so inspired by my friend Karen who made some gorgeous cards using Simon Says Stamp Sketched Flowers. I knew I had to get my hands on that stamp set. I am not great with florals and this stamp set is a great one for me. So, I stamped and heat embossed the large image with gold embossing powder onto black heavy weight cardstock and painted the images in with Metallic paints . I then used a Mama Elephant retangular A2 die set to cut my panels out. I also flickered white or gold paint droplets and layered one card with gold foil paper. I used velum for one sentiment along with clear foam tape that still showed through a bit but was okay. The word die is from Simon Says Stamp that I also diecut out in foam. I added my panels onto A2 black card bases. Lastly I added sequins and layered the inside with velum along with sentiments. It was a good thing I made two cards, because my friend purchased both of them. I hope you like my cards, thank you so much for stopping by!
