ID: MC Aug16 - Marigolds You're Fabulous - ECD Happy Birthday - Friendship card
size: 6"w x 6"h

Created: August 26, 2016

I saw the UTube for making these Marigolds by Susan Tierney Cockburn, so had to make them BIG GRIN

Also using one of the newer "A Way With Words" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs ("Happy Birthday"), designed by Suzanne Cannon (also available HERE). 

And using a quote stamp  from Quietfire Design  and an electronic file available on the Silhouette onLine store.

("Friendship Isn't a Big Thing..."); Silhouette ("Fabulous")


Scored and folded my pumpkin toned card. Layered a piece of dark brown Ruche cardstock.

Die cut the marigolds from white cardstock and colored with Distress acrylic Daubers "Mustard Seed", "Peeled Paint" and a touch of "Forest Moss". Added the deeper red flower detail with a Prismacolor marker "Scarlet Lake". Tooled with a loop tool and assembled.

eCut the "Fabulous" from white cardstock and also a shadow layer. Painted the word with the yellow dauber and the shadow layer with "Walnut Stain" both while on the mat, then very very carefully removed the word layer (those thin strokes are really thin... but gorgeous), adhered it to the shadow layer.

Die cut the letters for the "You're" using Elizabeth Craft Designs "alphabet" die set. Painted them with the yellow dauber and hit the edges with the red marker.

Adhered all the elements adding a yellow narrow ribbon bow.



On the inside: Stamped the dragonfly (CC Designs "Dragonfly Floral") on white cardstock, inking the stamp with Distress minis, misting with water and then stamping.

Die cut the "Happy Birthday" from a yellow and red cardstock. Adhered to two layers slightly off set and then onto the inside.

Stamped the quote using Versafine "Vintage Sepia" all over and then here and there with  Black Onyx, clear embossed.

Adhered the inside element to the inside of the card.
