ID: MC July/14 - Easel Camellia - Hug HB card
size: 5"w x 5"h (easel closed)

Created: July 25, 2014

Another blossom made with my faux Blossom Impression tool...

I'm also using a Birthday sentiment and part of a quote stamp from Quietfire Design on the inside, and an eCut word "Hug".

 Happy Birthday; You're Never Too Old;


I electronically cut the petals for the flower, painted them with Distress acrylic daubers (Spun Sugar & Picked Raspberry), covering the petals completely with the Spun Sugar, and then almost giving a dry technique with the Raspberry to create streaks. When dry, misted one side of the petals with a mix of Perfect Pearls & a couple drops of purple Dylusions spray. When that was dry, misted one side with water and used my Quilling Mini Mold and my shaping gadget to shape the petals, set them aside to dry and harden. Then assembled them around a punched out circle using a glue gun. Shaped the bud and adhered with the glue gun, then added some leafy elements to the buds.

I folded my white cardstock, then cut with my EK Success circle cutter to create a circle card, leaving a small section of the fold in tact. Folded the front circle in half to create my easel. Cut another circle to create the front of the card. Cut a circle slightly small from white Ruche cardstock. Sponged Distress "Picked Raspberry" on the edges of the single circle, then adhered the Ruched cardstock circle, then adhered both of these to the front of the card.

Adhered my various die cut and eCut elements. The Rose background circle, was inked with Distress pinks and clear embossed. The Leafy Branches were stamped with a misc leaf background stamp.

The stamp the Birthday sentiment on the curve, I first cut some slits in my unmounted rubber stamp, so that I could shape it when placing on my acrylic block which is covered with "Tack n Peel". Inked it with Color Box pinks and some purple, then clear embossed. Shadow outlined with with a very fine tipped black pen.

Finally I added the pink toned pearl flourish .

On the floor of the easel I adhered a piece of lace, then another piece of lacy ribbon, then a piece of Sari ribbon. Stamped the Damask background (Flourishes) using the Picked Raspberry pad, then embossing with Pearlescent embossing powder.

Stamped part of the quote on a piece of white cardstock using Versafine Black Onyx. Die cut with Spellbinders "Lacy Circle" set, sponging with a dirty pink sponge.

eCut the word "Hug" cutting away some of the flourish details from the design. Applied Quickie glue all over and sprinkled with Stickles glitter "Thistle". Adhered it to a black shadow layer, then onto the circle. Added the word "a" with a black pen. Adhered this with 3D foam tape as the stopper.
