Hello friends and happy holidays to you all! I hope you’ve had the opportunity to share the season with friends this week. Speaking of friends, we have made some lovely friendship inspired cards and can’t wait to share them with you!
The Flower Flourish Cutting Dies make a beautiful flower vine! I used green Pastel Cardstock, Flowers, Flourishes & Feathers Paper Pack and Stitched Stackers Cutting Die for the card background, vine and flowers.
I sponged green ink, from Pigment Ink Pad Bonanza, on the edges of the green vines, leaves and flowers.
I die cut large and small flowers from both lavender and purple Flowers, Flourishes & Feathers Paper Pack and used a paintbrush handle (an excellent substitution if you don’t own a stylus) and foam mouse pad to curve each petal. I also inked the petal edges with either lavender or burgundy ink.
After coloring her image with Le Plume Pens, Debbie cut out the image and added Crystal Lacquer (coming soon to Paper Wishes) to the vase portion.
When the Crystal Lacquer dries the glossy finish looks like water in the vase.
Debbie also added Peppermint Jazz Embellishments to the poppy centers and black buttons to the card front.
Thanks for joining me today! And from all of us at Paper Wishes, Happy New Year!
