Dear Friend

HI and welcome!  I made this card for a few challenges - Mojo Monday, The Card Concept and Seize the Birthday Anything Goes theme - definitely not playing with the One Layer Toppings Option here 😉

This card has more layers on it that anything I've made in a very long time, but I still quite like it.  I used lots of patterned paper and a NBUS set from Altenew.  I'm calling this Clean & Layered.

The images were stamped with Altenew inks and the sentiment embossed with gold embossing powder.  It's hard to see in the photo but the two vertical strips are gold - one plain gold and one gold dots on white.  I didn't want to cover up the scripty paper so for the rectangular panel, I used vellum.  I painted the flower with Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen and finished the card with some glitter drops.

Thanks for visiting.

Products used:

Stamps:  Best Buds, Budding Thanks (Altenew)
Ink:  Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Frayled Leaf, Forest Glades (Altenew), Versamark
Cardstock:  White, Black, Live Beautifully Patterned Paper (CTMH)
Dies:  Budding Thanks (Altenew), Inside/Out Stitched Rectangles (MFT)
Accessories:  Gold EP (SSS), Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen, Nuvo Glitter Drops


Edited to Add:  This card got a shout out at Card Concept.

This is beautiful! I love the big, wordy background and how you layered the flower on vellum. I think vellum is the unsung hero of card-making!

This is so pretty. The bold gold & black with the hit of pink is a fabulous colour combo. Love the vellum too. Thanks for playing along with Seize the Birthday
