Daisy Background Birthday Card

When I printed this Pinterest digital image on Neena Classic Crest Cardstock  the resolution was very good, but I decided to see what I could do with it to make it look okay.

One thing I decided to do was the color the background a light blue, this helped even out the pixilation.

Next I decided to color the flowers in a rainbow of different Copic Marker colors (YR12, YR14, YR16, YR68, R17; YR38, YR15, YR18; Y17, Y08, Y02; Y08, Y02, Y11; RV06, RV04, RV02; R14, RV13, RV11; R20, R22, R20; R08, R05, R02; R39, E37, R27; YG67, YG17, YG03; BG000, BG0000).

Next I cut down the image so it was smaller using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die.

A black rectangle 1/8” larger than the die cut image was adhered to the back of the focal image with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

The last thing was to have a sentiment that took a little more real-estate on the card.  I used a sentiment from My Favorite Things Celebrate You, Stamped it on Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  Adding dimension to the sentiment by adding 3M ½” Foam Tape to the back.

Everything was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.
