ID: MC May/17 - Easel Sunshine Lily - ECD Hello - Just Living- HB card
size: 7"w x 5"h (easel closed)

Created: May 4, 2017

I've had this card on my desk for a while and just never got around to finishing it... Then the gals at one of our get togethers were making a bunch of Heartfelt Creations "Sunshine Lily" and I thought I'd make a few as well...

The background paper is something I thought the gals a few weeks back using Colour Burst, Versamark and an outline stamp. Love the way it turned out.

I'm using an A Way With Words die "Hello" from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

And using a sentiment and quote stamp from Quietfire Design, 

("Happy Birthday Plain and Simple" 7pce set);  ("Just Living is not enough...")


Scored and folded my dark brown cardstock to create the easel, cutting another piece the same size as card for the front.

The background piece was created on white cardstock with  Kaiser Crafts "Rocks", inking the stamp with Versamark, sprinkling some Colour Burst in various colors, pouncing gently with a Perfect Pearls brush (like a cosmetic blush brush - you want something very very soft), then lightly misting with water and stamping. Repeated to cover the whole cardstock, then trimmed down to 5 x 7". Die cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Rectangles" several times and used all the pieces (negative and positive...). Adhered to card.

Created the flowers using an oxide background I made, shaping the flowers, adhering the elements together then misting with Perfect Pearls "Sunshine Yellow" spray. Dried then added the center glob using Nuvo Crystal Drops "Golden Sunset".

 The flourishes are a new die I just got Tim's Bigz die "Scroll" cut from white cardstock, colored direct to paper with Distress "Peeled Paint" then with "Mowed Lawn".

"Hello" was die cut from the oxide background papers, then Glossy Accents applied when on the card.

The word "sunshine" was masked from the rest of the stamp, inked with Distress Picket Fence and embossed with white embossing powder.

On the floor: Stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Adhered more of the scroll flourishes, adding the black rhinestone flourishes and a salmon toned little bow.

Stamped the "Happy Birthday" using the black on a scrap piece of the background, clear embossed, trimmed down to the same size as the front border, adhered to a scrap piece of the brown cardstock, then adhered part of it to the floor.
