Today we are sharing sneak peeks using Framed Florals (illustrated by Chaitali Narla), Bluebells Die.
I kept things a little clean and simple today and used the bluebell frame from Framed Florals along with the Happy Birthday Sentiment. I stamped this out on white cardstock from PTI then I used the bluebell fill stamp that comes with the set to fill in the flowers. I added a tiny bit of accent with Copic Markers just to round the flowers slightly. I fussy cut this and wrapped it with a bit of twine thread and attached a bow. I then glued on a wood veneer butter fly, popped the whole thing up on foam squares and attached it to the patterned paper. I then attached that piece to the Steel Gray cardbase, again on foam squares, rounded the two bottom corners of the cardbase and I was done!
To finish out the inside I also rounded the corners of the cardbase, then I cut a piece of white down to 3 x 4.25 and rounded the bottom corners of it. I stamped the bluebells again, this time in flannel gray ink and stamped the fill stamp over the top. I added a strip of coordinating pattern paper from the front (aka a scrap, lol) and done!
