Floral Birthday Card - Coloring on Vellum

 Hello everyone!  

I’m back with another design team post for the I Brake for Stamps/Blank Page Muse sister stores!  Don’t forget you can use my affiliate code to get 15% off, and it works at BOTH stores!  


My card today uses all stamps from IBFS.  I stamped the bouquet on white vellum and then used black embossing powder.  I colored on the back with alcohol markers.  Some well placed little pieces of foam tape were completely invisible to the eye.

The inside of the card was finished with another stamp from the set in a darker pink ink.  I stamped over top with a sentiment.  I gave this card to a good friend for her birthday recently and she really liked it.  And I am happy to report we had both sunshine AND laughter on her special day!

The stamps I used today are Florals Sheet and Inspirational Plate #2.  

The background die is from Impression Obsession.  This was placed over a piece of watercolor cardstock with distress inks and gold perfect pearls. 

Thank you for visiting today!

Your bouquet is so pretty against that pretty die cut and watercolored background. Like how you did the inside too!

This is just gorgeous! The die cut panel over the water colored background looks great as does that beautiful bouquet!
