Hi there, I'm sharing a quick and easy card with you today, a birthday card that I made recently for a friend. I've recently got into adult colouring, I hadn't really done much since childhood :) For this card I have used one of the pages from the Eastern Promise colouring pad in the Crafter's Companion Colorista range and Colourista alcohol pens. I have also used dies from Crafter's Companion, Tattered Lace, and X cut, Black Soot and Seedless Preseves Distress Inks, and silver gilding wax.
I removed the page I had selected from the colouring pad and trimmed it slightly, then blended black ink around the edges. I cut a piece of black card slightly larger than the page and matted the page onto it. I used some bright blue card as a base card and layered the focal panel onto it.
Next I die cut some flowers and foliage out of pink and black card. I cut words for the sentiment and some letters out of silver mirror card. I blended DI around the edges of the pink flowers and foliage, then shaped them. I added gilding wax to the black flowers, foliage and words,then shaped them as well. I layered the flowers together and added a gem to the middle. I also added a gem to the centre of the main pattern, and to the butterfly.
Finally I attached all the embellishments to the card. I love the results of this card, so bright and cheerful! I think it could be used for different occasions too, and for male and female cards. I used this page because I knew that my friend likes it, she admired it a few weeks ago :)
Thank you for dropping in, I hope you have enjoyed this project. :)
