Yogi here today - It's that time of year when my Lily of the Valley will start to sprout. I've got loads of them in my garden...
I'm using one of the newer quote stamps from Quietfire Design, as well as part of an Xmas sentiment stamp.
("Always Believe..."); ("Tiny Christmas Wishes" 3pce set)
I'm using a bunch of digital products from Suzanne available on the Silhouette OnLine store. Click on any image to purchase.
I started with 8.5 x 11" cardstock. Cut the cardstock to 6" x 11". Scored vertically at the 6" point. The measure vertically to the 5" point and diagonally scored. Note: if you're using a wider than 11" cardstock, measure whatever is past the 6" point and measure that vertically so you have the same measurement on the base as the vertical side.
I had the orangy frame leftover from a previous Oxide background. Adhered to front.
Electronically cut all my elements. Inked the fairy, the word "Fairy" and the "Happy Birthday" using Distress pads direct to paper with layers of "Iced Spruce"; "Peeled Paint"; "Broken China"; and "Salty Ocean" then clear embossing the words.
The leaves were inked with the Iced Spruce and Peeled Paint. Veins put in using a colored pencil. Elements adhered and then adhered to card.
Masked the rest of the words from the stamp, inking only the word "wishes" using Versafine Black Onyx .
On the floor: Created a shadow layer for the "happy birthday" words from the cream cardstock. Adhered the two together, scored down the middle, then adhered the bottom portion of the word to the floor as my stopper.
Stamped the quote onto a previously decorated cardstock (Colour Burst Liquid Metals) using the black and clear embossed. Adhered to floor.
The butterflies were cut from the Liquid Metals background and adhered to front and floor. Gems adhered to bodies.
Final touch added the rhinestone flourishes.
