Welcome to week 15 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!
This week we are showcasing one of the brights colours: Daffodil Delight.
This bright and beautiful colour was just perfect for the card I needed to make this week: a birthday card for one of my very best friends: Rachel, who I originally met at mother’s group. In a few month’s time, our boys will turn 20 and they’re still wonderful friends, as are Rachel and I.
One of the many things I love about Rachel is that she always has a vase of freshly cut flowers in her home, so I decided to make her a floral birthday card in some of her very favourite colours using the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set and matching Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.
I love using my marker pens to draw on top of my stamps and add extra interest and details to my background. For this card, I stamped one of the smallest stamps from the Oh So Eclectic set in Daffodil Delight and then added dots to the stamp using my Basic Black Marker.
A touch of bling was to add a strip of the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon to the base of the card and a couple of gold facetted gems to the card. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Hand Delivered Hostess set, stamped in White Craft Ink onto Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed using white embossing powder.
And just because it’s spring, here’s a photo of my card under a bunch of stunning clivias which are blooming in my garden at the moment.
