I have a very colourful and vibrant card to share with you today. One of my favourite technique to do is to custom make my own background for my cards. This makes my happy because I use techniques or stamp or both and the result is very unique every time. The process itself gives me great pleasure and results are amazing. Of course, there are times when things don’t turn out the way you wanted but this card turned out better than expected. Here it is.
I then used the stitched rectangle die from Stitched Duo 2 die from Pretty Pink Posh to die cut the centre rectangle from the panel. I also die cut three more rectangles out of black cardstock and one using vellum cardstock. Now, I stacked and glued the three black rectangle then the stamped rectangle on the top. The stamped frame negative is adhered to the card base. I then inlaid and glued the stacked rectangle panel back in place. This panel has a bit of dimension although it is inlaid back in its place.
On the vellum rectangle die cut, I stamped and white heat embossed the flower bouquet image and sentiment also from the same Sprigs stamp set. I added tiny drops of glossy accent behind the heat embossed area and also on the four corners of the vellum panel and adhered it on top of the inlaid panel on the card front.You can hardly see the glossy accent behind the vellum. I then used Strawberry Burst and Sunshine Glow iridescent sequins and Metallic Silver 4mm sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to accent and bring all the colours on the card together. Then used black twine to tie around into a bow. Here is a closeup of the card.
