This beautiful card is very special because I created it for my husband's grandmother for her 80th birthday! She loves receiving cards so I make a special point of sending her one each month just because! The gorgeous Tulips are a digital stamp from the Digi Doodle Shop. This week over at the Digi Doodle Shop's Best "Anything Goes" so head on over there and enter your latest creation in this week's challenge!
My card base is a 5 3/4 x 11 1/2 piece of Basic Black cardstock folded in half. I cut a 5 1/4 square piece of PTI White cardstock and layered it with a slightly smaller piece of Wild Wasabi Patterned Paper from the Stampin' Up Prints Pack. The shadow layers are each 1 3/4 x 5 1/4 strips of Basic Black layered with a slightly smaller piece of Berry Sorbet embossed with the Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls Embossing Folder. I made the bow using 5/8" White Silk Ribbon following this awesome "Single Tied Bow" tutorial from Amazing Paper Grace then pulled a separate piece of the same ribbon through the backside and wrapped it around the card base taping the ends down on the backside before attaching this entire layer to the card base.
The image was printed on PTI White using my Epson Photo Printer and colored in using copic markers. I paper pierced around the edges using the Stampin' Up Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack then layered the image on to a slightly larger piece of Wild Wasabi then Basic Black cardstock before attaching to the card base using mounting tape. To embellish the card I added a couple Kaiser Rhinestones along the edge of the image and a button threaded with DMC White in the center of my beautiful bow!
Hope you have a very special day!
