Hi everyone. Today is my dear friend Bonnie's (Stamping with Klass) birthday. Happy Birthday to you Bonnie!! Wishing you the best birthday ever, my friend!
Here is the card I sent her and thankfully, she received it on time. I just never know what's going to happen with the mail delivery between Canada and the U.S. :)
For this card, I started with the background. I had smooshed up some left over blue ink to create the first layer. Then I used a monoprint of this leafy vine stencil using brushos (turquoise, lime green and leaf green). Happy how it turned out.
The daisy die-cut is also a NBUS (never-before-used-schtuff) for me. I bought it because I saw both Bonnie and my friend Linda (Life in the Craft Lane) make gorgeous cards with it. I HAD to HAVE it! :) I die-cut two for each flower on the card, colouring them with my Zig markers. Then I shaped the petals, cut off the stem from one of the flowers, and layered the flower head over top of the other to create some depth and interest. I repeated for the second flower.
A simple white frame, stamped with Happy Birthday using the same Zig markers I used for my flower stems, and the card was ready to assemble.
My CAS Mix Up card has stamping, colouring using zig markers, die-cutting, smooshing and stencil monoprint with Brushos ... so I'm heading over to CAS Mix Up July Challenge - Markers.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit, and if you have time, please drop by and wish Bonnie a happy birthday!
