Muse #210 - Happy Anniversary Birds

Hi there

It's whizzed around to my turn to be your designer again over a Muse card challenge.

This is the card I made for my brother and sister-in-law for their first wedding anniversary.  I hope there are plenty of elements you can draw inspiration from so that you can play along with the challenge; the layout, colours, dry and wet embossing, vellum, stitched panel, image coloured with pencils.

I heat embossed the sentiment in white onto a strip of blue vellum which I wrapped around a panel of cardstock I embossed with a hearts embossing folder.  This was adhered flat to the cardbase.  I then stamped the images, coloured with pencils and die cut with a stitched rectangle die before popping up on 3D foam.  To finish I added some Glossy Accents to the water splashes and the water in the bird bath.

Materials used:

  • Embossing Folder: We R Memory Keepers - Next Level 'Dotted'
  • Vellum from stash
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Bird Bath; Altenew - Vintage Roses (sentiment)
  • Ink: VersaMark; Memento - Tuxedo Black
  • Die: MFT Die-namics - Stitched Rectangles
  • Coloured with coloured pencils
  • Accents: Glossy Accents

House of Cards - April Challenge - Feather Images and/or Colours
