- This card started with a drawing of a basket which I sketched, traced in black ink and scanned into the computer. Below is a copy of the resulting digi stamp which you can click on to reveal a larger image, download, save, and use in anyway you wish.
- To make the card, copy the basket on a piece of Cryogen White paper, and trim the paper to 3.5 inches square. On another piece of scrap cryogen, stamp the small bouquet in the Daisy Patch Bouquet two times. Color all images with copics alcohol markers or markers of choice, and cut out the two stamped bouquets.
- Sponge the edge of the basket background with the chalk ink. Overlapping the two bouquets slightly, adhere to the basket with glue dots.
- Assemble the card in card stock layers shown in the photo below. Notice that the edges of the white 5.5" card has been distressed on all four sides with chalk ink.
- At this point you could add some glitter to the centers of the flowers and call the card complete. However, I wanted more dimension, so I stamped the three smallest daisies from the Daisy Patch Flowers set two times each, colored with markers, cut them out and shaped them with my fingers to curve the petals slightly upward.
- Attach these flowers with glue dots on top of the main image according to size and add brown glitter to the centers using the Sakura glue pen. Add the punched out butterfly with another glue dot and add sparkle glitter to the wings, and brown glitter to the body. (Tip: Always add your darkest glitter first.)
- As always, don't forget to sign your work.
