Corner Garden Birthday


My second daughter's 21st birthday was this past Sunday, and this is the card I made her. She's always liked these type of floral stamps, so I just had to use it for her card.  I really love this Corner Garden stamp! The flowers are gorgeous, and they're all on one stamp!  

Of course, I just had to use my Blendabilities to color it in. I used the six color packs that became available first, plus the Crumb Cake & Smoky Slate packs. I really like how these colors look together.  I also used the Color Lifter to make sections of the flowers and the butterfly lighter.  By the way, the butterfly comes from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set.  I think the butterfly really adds a lot to this card. I only put adhesive onto the center, back of the butterfly, and then attached it to the card. Once attached, I bent the wings up to make the butterfly look like it's flying.

I used the Smoky Slate Blendabilities pack to outline the flowers & leaves. After I drew lightly around the images with the fine tip of the lightest Smoky Slate marker, I softened the lines up by coloring over them with the Color Lifter. Doing this really makes the images look three dimensional.

I've listed all of the supplies I used to make this card, along with links to all of the products, below.
