Oh So Eclectic Birthday
T his is a birthday card made for my July Stamp Class featuring the Oh So Eclectic stamp set and matching dies. This card was CASEd from a card made by Wendy Cranford
Stamp Sets: Oh So Eclectic, Happy Birthday Gorgeous
Cardstock: Emerald Envy base, Whisper White 5-1/2" x 2-1/2" , Lemon Lime Twist scrap
Ink: Emerald Envy, Berry Burst
Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper 2-1/8" x 4"
Eclectic Layers Thinlit dies, Clear Faceted Gems, dimensionals. Multipurpose Liquid Glue
I first stamped the flowers from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set in Berry Burst--stamp the background first and then the detailed stamp. At the bottom of the Whisper White piece I stamped the sentiment.
Next I turned to die cutting. I cut out the two flowers, the leaf out of lemon lime twist and the geometric design on the whisper white piece. The flowers are designed to show no white but if you don't cut them exactly, just sponge some Berry Burst on the edges.
I attached the designer paper behind the cut out piece using snail and then added the entire piece to the Emerald Envy card base.
I added the first flower using fast fuse and then added the second flower using dimensionals. Using some Multipurpose glue I attached the leaves slipping the piece behind the flowers. To finish the flowers, I added the clear faceted gems to the flower centers.
Since the card base is so dark, add a piece of Whisper White to the inside. I also stamped the sentiment "make a wish" to the inside with emerald envy.
