Happy Birthday-Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb
Hello, and welcome to the March Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb collaboration. We decided in honor of Spring we would create a floral card in honor all of the beautiful things that are blooming right now. To create my pretty little springtime card I started by layering some pretty yellow patterned paper onto my white card base. I'm not sure who made the paper since it was sent to me by a craft friend in a destash sale she had. But I loved the buttery color and decided to let that dictate my color palette. I die cut a wonky edge panel from white cardstock using a Gina Marie Designs rectangle die and then stamped the birthday sentiment from the Verve Stamps Poppy Birthday stamp set at the bottom using Versafine onyx black ink. I then stamped the floral images using fresh lemon and citrus burst Altenew crisp dye inks and then stamped the outlines on top and cut them out using the coordinating dies from the same set. I then die cut the stems and the leaves and stamped the outline image for them and colored them in using a Copic alcohol marker in YG61. I glued the stems directly onto the focal panel using my Zig two-way glue pen and then popped the flowers and leaves up using some scrapbook adhesives foam squares. I added some white enamel dots to the center of the flowers using Ranger enamel accents and then popped the whole thing up off of the card using some foam tape. I added a few buttery yellow enamel dots from My Mind's Eye Now and Then collection and added some beautiful shimmer to the leaves and flowers using my Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen. I love this clean and simple look.
For my coffee choice this month I opted for Barissimo Seasonal Blend Pumpkin Spice iced coffee! It really hit the spot after my run this morning!
Be sure to pop on over to Deb's blog and see what she created for us this month. And if you like my card be sure to leave a comment. I read and appreciate them all!
