Birthday Blooms & Hardwood for GDP049

Hi Crafters!

Today I have a little number I knocked up for the Global Design Project #049 Challenge. What do you think? I'm really happy with how it turned out!

I have used a Thick Whisper White cardstock base (A4 cut in half & folded in half) with a layer of Daffodil Delight cardstock & then I have used Dimensionals to prop the top layer up. I have used Versamark, Copper Heat Emboss Powder & the Heat Tool to do the Hardwood stamp onto Whisper White cardstock & the flower from the Birthday Blooms stamp set onto Shimmery White cardstock. Then I have used an Aqua Painter to colour in the flower using Pear Pizazz, Flirty Flamingo & Daffodil Delight - these were the colours from the GDP Challenge.

I have fussy cut the flower out & in doing so, all the little edges got turned up. I decided not to flatten it out as I thought it added dimension to the card & looked really pretty. I have also wrapped a little Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon around the Hardwood layer.

On the inside, I have stamped the flower in Daffodil Delight, the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo & the dots in Pear Pizazz. All of these stamps are from the Birthday Blooms set.

  1. Gorgeous Jessie. You've reminded me that I haven't inked up Hardwood for a while. Should remedy that. Thanks for the inspiration and for joining in with this week's Global Design Project!
