Floral Birthday Card0
Nicole here today to share a card with you showing how I made a fun birthday card using beautiful Papermilldirect card. Supplies used:
- Papermilldirect New White Super Smooth Card
- Papermilldirect White Linen Card
- Papermildirect Black Smooth card (250gsm)
- Altenew Floral stamps and Label love stamps
- Adhesive and scissors
To start off I stamped out all of the roses from the Altenew stamp set onto the Super Smooth Card. This is a layering stamp set, so you build up the image in layers using coloured inks. The smooth card takes the ink wonderfully and gives a beautiful finish. Tip: I only had one green ink, so double stamping the second layer gives a darker effect and looks like you have used a darker ink.
I set these aside to try - I used dye ink so I like to let them fully dry and soak into the paper. I then went on to work out the angle on my white linen panel. I laid it over the black card panel at the angel I wanted.
I then flipped it over and traced around the excess....
Then cut this marked excess off and got left with a fun angled panel for my card.
I duluted some black soot distress ink and added some splatters of it onto this white panel.
While this was drying I fussy cut out all of my flowers and leaves. By the time I was done with this the black splatters were dry and I could start aranging the flowers and leaves on the card. I aranged them as I liked and glued them down.
I placed the sentiment over the top of the flowers.
I added a scattering of some gem stones, and that completed the card! I hope you enjoyed it, and you get inspired to try some offset angles on your cards, it makes for a fun effect!
