Blooming Bouquet Birthday

I like the drapping leaves that are part of this bouquet.  They are a delicate addition to the design.  This image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a HP Laser Printer and then outline die cut using the Silhouette PIXScan Mat and Cameo Machine.

I like the way dimension can be added to an outline image and brings visual interest to a card.

The card was colored using Copic Markers: G46, G82; YG99; YG57, YG17, YG03; BG13, BG34, BG32; B25, B24, B23; V25; RV06, RV04, RV02; RV14, RV13, RV11; Y17, Y08, Y02; YR24.  Once the color was complete the focal image was placed on a sheet of Darice Sticky Back Foam and traced with a pencil, fussy cut with scissors, and adhered to the back of the image.  I have begun adding foam dimension in this manner and like the solid surface that it gives.

A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  A quarter sheet of Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock was run through the Big Shot with the Winnie & Walter Audrey Essentials Scalloped Rectangle.  Darice Sticky Fun Foam was added to the back for dimension.

The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink on the Paper Company Fellum and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  The focal image was adhered to the scalloped rectangle using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the sentiment was wrapped around the rectangle and adhered to the back using Scotch Tape.  The focal image scalloped rectangle was then adhered to the top of the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.
