July 26/11  "Ovals"

ID: MC July 11 - Ovals - Love We Keep HB card
7"w x 5"h

Created: July 20, 2011


This is another digital image I recently won from Pink Cat Studio and wanted do use it as well.

This card also uses a quote stamp by Quietfire Design

I folded my white cardstock in half and die cut it with a Grand ovals Nestabilities die, keeping one edge just shy of the die. Then folded one of those ovals in half to create the easel. Cut a couple of  purple ovals with an electronic cutting machine. I die cut another oval from white cardstock for my main decorating surface.

I used several embossing folders, using my hard rubber mallet to selectively emboss where I needed. Craft Concepts "Wings" #900-000  for the floor of the easel. Crafts Too "Blossom" # CTFD3048 for the bottom of the main oval. I left a thin area for my ribbon which I twisted & glittered (micro fine Ritz glitter "Lavender"), then did a strip of faux stitching using Sizzix Tim's "Zig Zag" folder from the Pattern & Stitch set #657198. The upper area with the words is a Cuttlebug "Love is in the Air" set #2000221, and I only used a couple words from it and the small heart.

I colored the digi image with Prisma colored pencils, then added some Glossy accents to the vase . I had printed a 2nd image to cut out the buttons, which were also coated with Glossy Accents.

I used 3D pop dots for the vase and flowers, then used more pop dots for the buttons.

The quote was stamped with Versafine Imperial Purple and clear embossed. I die cut it with another Spellbinders oval, sponged some Victorian Violet on the edges, creased it and adhered that to the floor of the easel. I added 3 small gold half pearls.

I punched out the butterfly using Martha Stewart's Punch Around the Page corner punch "Monarch Butterfly" #42-50017. Used my Quickie Glue pen and then sprinkled with Ritz Micro fine glitter "Stardust"

The last detail was adding the 2 letter brads HB which stand for "Happy Birthday"
