The Stampin Up colours to be used were;
I had seen a card with a die peeking over the top of the card base and I really liked that effect.
I folded the base of the card creating a card that measured 11 cm by 15 cm which fits the post office preferred A5 envelope size.
The image is a Mo Manning digi called Hush. I had to print it out a couple of times on ordinary printer copy paper to get the right size to fit the die but once that was established I printed the image out on X-Press It blending paper.
Before we go on I would like to talk to you about digital images. I find them really easy to work with and just copy them into a word document and resize from there. I love Mo Manning images but use a lot of other ones too. I'm not affiliated with any company and make no income from my hobby. The best thing about digi's is you can resize them and it takes about five minutes from you choosing your image paying for it and down loading it. Copic work perfectly with printer ink (well mine anyway) and with this image I also used a Stamp'in Up water based marker and an aqua brush. I was just careful not to get the paper too wet. I also mounted the image onto some craft foam with PVA glue just to pop it a little.
The greeting is from a retired SU set called "A Word for You". I spent an hour hunting for this stamp set (I have way too many stamps) thinking it was wood mounted, eventually finding it in with the clear mounted sets.
I stamped the greeting onto some vellum with Versa Mark - Watermark and then heat embossing with silver embossing powder. I attached this with two mini glue dots tucked under the ribbon. Everything else apart from the craft foam was attached with X-Press It high tack double sided tap including the paper flowers. I finished off the card by layering the Spellbinder Nestie enchanted Labels 28 (middle one) on top of some SU Pink Pirouette and Sky Blue, and there you have it. Hope you enjoyed the post, cheers Marg
