Happy Monday crafty friends! Today I am sharing the card that I made for my Mom's birthday in early November! I can share it now because she checks my blog lol!
This one was made with Simon Says Stamp brand exclusive (sentiment) and the magnolia is actually an exclusive STAMPember collaboration with Clearly Besotted Stamps.
This card design was completely inspired by Cynde Whitlow from The Pink Envelope blog, if you don't follow her I highly recommend her YouTube tutorials. She is such a talent! She inspired me to go with some no-line Copic colouring on a larger image and add an inked frame.
I started by stamping my magnolia and coloring it in (all colors linked and listed below) Once that was complete I die cut my panel using my favourite Avery Elle Wonky Stitched rectangle die. I taped off all four sides with PostIt tape and very lightly blended some Evergreen Bough distress ink (the paper is Neena 80lbs cardstock)
I let the Distress Ink dry completely before embossing my sentiment from the fantastic Simon Says Stamp Sketch Flowers set with Simon's Silver embossing powder. I added some Pretty Pink Posh clear drops to finish off the card!
