A birthday card in coral, dark green and silver


One of the fav
Hello crafty friends!

I have a new card to share with you, made with the inspiration of a few challenges.

At The Color Throwdown #721, the colors chosen by Amy Rysavy were way out of my comfort zone! I rearly use coral on my crads, but I wanted to give it a try:

I stamped and heat embossed the flowers' outlines with Lindy's Gang Silver Moon Sapphire ep. The inside of the flowers were stamped with Ranger's Tea Rose archival ink, and the flowers were die cut.

The leaves were stamped with Ranger's Library Green archival ink and die cut. I also stamped a few sprigs in green, directly on the white basis.

I also stamped the sentiment in green ink.

I cut 3 stripes of silver cardstock, and heat embossed them with the Lindy's ep. I wanted the stripes to ground my flowers, so I adhered the stripes diagonally, and aranged the flowers and the leaves toward the left bottom corner.

To finish up, I added a glitter green enamel dot to the center of the big flower, and a few silver glitter enamel dots around the sentiment.

The white panel was adhered to a silver cardstock basis.

Somehow, in the photo the green looks much more darker than in real, but I couldn't get a better take of the card to show it.

It also goes for the Embossing challenge at AAA Birthday cards challenge:

It also goes to the 'Anyting Goes' challenge at SimonSays Wednesday challenge.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate your comment very much!
