Gran's Birthday Card
I chose my background paper resized it to the size needed then i used one of the new die matts from the new updates they recently added and punched it onto the polka dot paper ,i added my own text into this shape & matched the colour of font to match the paper colour then i added the flower clusters to the two corners ,i copied another two of these clusters and added that to my a4 card so i could use them as decoupage on the front of the card also a ribbon was added .
I managed to add all of this onto the one A4 sheet of card so i then printed it out ,cut out all the separate pieces then started to layer them onto my scallop card blank with double sided foam pads .
I used my promarkers and went over the flowers a little ,then added glitter and some flower gems i came across plus a butterfly.
I did similar with the inside of the card but left out the decoupage flowers i just added everything flat to the inside. I went over the text & flowers with a sakura pen to add a little shimmer and went around the edge of my scallop card with a promarker.I think it looks pretty good !
