Flying Colours 18th

Hello my crafting friends, good to have your company today, I hope you are all safe and well. I really do appreciate all your comments and I sincerely apologize if I have not got round to commenting on your blog, don't know where the time goes, I have not even been able to do any crafting this past week as I have been busy with 'life' things, they do get in the way of our crafting don't they?

Today I have a card I made for my husbands second cousin for her 18th birthday which was last week.

I knew I wanted the card to be Gold & Purple so I mounted a piece of Plum card onto my White Base card then I cut a piece of Gold card to size and stamped over the edges with Dragonflies, Butterflies and Feathers using my Versa mark glue pad then heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.

I ran this through the Rose Vine embossing folder then inked over the embossed parts with Black Soot, this gave it quite a vintage appearance. I matted this onto my card.

I die cut the decorative square out of more Gold card and placed it in the centre of my card, using the smaller die I die cut this out with more Gold card. I got some sticky numbers 18 and inked them with my Versa mark pad then heat embossed with Purple embossing powder. I stuck these in the middle of the smallest die cut and placed this on top of the larger die cut.

Using Black card I stamped the Butterfly and Dragonfly with Versa mark and heat embossed with Black embossing powder. I then chose some Pebeo  paints and painted the Butterfly and Dragonfly. The irridescent paints really make them stand out, especially on Black card. Once dry I cut these out using a craft knife and glued them into place on the card.

I wanted to put her name on the card so using Plum card and the Alphabet bunting I die cut the letters needed, stuck them onto some ribbon and placed them on the card as seen. There you have the finished card.
