Happy Everything Aimee Birthday Card

My daughter Aimee turned 42 on May 8.  I don’t know how that could have happened so quickly, my brain tells me I’m not a day over 30.  Her favorite colors are teal/aqua and green.  I had just used the image from C. C. Designs Dove Art Studios Himalayan Poppy for my mother and thought it would make a beautiful birthday card for Aimee.

I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored the image with Copic Markers (colors used are listed below).  Once the coloring was done I die cut the image with the second largest Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Stackable Rectangles.  Another rectangle was cut from Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock 1/8” larger and both were adhered together using Be Creative Double Sided Tape.  (I find this works best with the smooth surface of mirror cardstock.)

The sentiment was cut from gold mirror cardstock using the Penny Black Awesome Die.  To add dimension the die was cut again from Sticky Backed Fun Foam.  cut the foam with the sticky side up and find it works really well to add dimension to die cut words. mirror cardstock.  Penny Black Awesome Die was also cut from the same mirror cardstock and again from Darice I

Darice Sticky Back Fun Foam was added to the back of the focal image rectangle and then it was adhered to the front of a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Gold Sequins were scattered on the card front.

I used my Derwent Inktense Pencil 1220 Green Aquamarine to add shadows to the flower centers.  A  Sakura Gelly Roll Metallic Gold #551 was used to add gold dots to the flower stamen and the card was done.
