Hello friends, I hope you're doing well! Today I'm sharing a card made for two challenges - Addicted to Stamps where the current theme is birthdays and with The Paper Players, were the challenge is to make a CAS birthday card.
I essentially made a one layer card with some embossing and just a bit of splatter for a little added interest.
In my stash I had two components of this card, one the embossed background and the other a piece of Bristol previously ink blended with shades of Distress Oxide Ink. I decided to keep it simple, in line with the challenge, with just one die cut image. I used a leaf die to cut it out, maximizing the as much color difference as I could.
Next I adhered the embossed panel directly to the white card base, then gently added the black and gold splatter, first to the panel alone, then a bit more after laying the leaf die cut on it. When the splatter dried, the leaf branch was glued to the base just along the main stems so the leaves could pop up a bit. The sentiment was gold embossed on black paper, die cut then added to the base with foam tape. The last touch was to add three sequins. Very simple and easy, especially using things from my stash!
Thank you for taking time to visit, I appreciate it very much! Take care and have a great week!
