Today’s project features Mama Elephant Garden Frame. This is a beautiful set and so different from what I usually do. I’m not very confident with flowers and really wanted to do these beautiful and delicate images justice.
First, I stamped everything onto heavy weight white card stock with a Copic-friendly ink. I looked up tiger lilies online and decided to go with the traditional pink and white variety. I colored everything with Copic markers then die cut with the coordinating dies and set the images aside to work on some ink blending.
The die cuts out a frame with an opening in the middle. I stamped the “Happy Birthday” sentiments from the stamp set with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I did some emboss-resist and inkblended with Distress Ink in Faded Jeans for a muted navy color. I cut down this to be around the same size as the frame.
I prepared an A2 card by die cutting a piece of pattern paper using the Basic Rectangles Creative Cut in the largest rectangle which is A2 size. I adhered this to my card base with tape runner. Then, I adhered the ink blended sentiment onto the card base with more tape runner. Lastly, I popped up the Garden Frame I colored earlier with foam tape for dimension.
I finished the card with some droplets and this relatively simple card packs a pretty good punch because of the beautiful ME images from Garden Frame.
I hope you liked my card today and thank you so much for stopping by!
