Hi again. I am here now with my second card for the day. This one I used several challenges for inspiration. First, I knew I would be using the "Hello Lovely" paper collection from CTMH and two of the challenges are to use this collection. One is Between The Folds (BTF) #40 A/B and it's is found here.
The other challenge is the Heart 2 Heart Challenge for February to use "Hello Lovely" and it's found here.
The third challenge I am entering is the Happy Little Stampers "Anything Goes with Dies" challenge for February. You can find the challenge here.
So on with the card. I started with a white A2 card base. I then cut a large piece of patterned paper from the "Hello Lovely" collection from CTMH at 4" x 5 1/4". I then cut a piece of white daisy cardstock at 3 3/4" x 4" and I stamped the floral image from the CTMH stamp and die set called "Hello Lovely Cardmaking Bundle" with Versamark ink. I then used gold embossing powder(CTMH) and heat embossed the image. I then colored the flowers with colored pencils from Prima and CTMH. I then covered the main flowers with glue and sprinkled CTMH Prisma Glitter on top. (Sadly, Prisma glitter has been discontinued by CTMH but I bought a bunch for my stash!) Next, I got my piece of patterned paper that I cut earlier and I die cut the floral image from it. I am just using the negative piece for this card. Before attaching the paper to the card I wrapped some Blush Shimmer ribbon (CTMH) around the edges and attached on the back with my tape runner. I then attached my colored floral piece to the top of my card. I then lined up the hole left from die cutting the patterned paper over the floral stamped piece. I used pop dots to add the patterned paper so that there is more visual interest. I next stamped a banner from the same stamp/die set with Versamark and then gold embossed it same as the floral image. I stamped the greeting with second generation Sorbet ink (CTMH). I centered this banner on top of the ribbon and attached with glue tape. Lastly, I added some rose gold sequins from CTMH. And there you have it.
Thanks for popping by,
