ID: MC Apr/15 - Quill - Garden Vine Celebrate - Enjoy Your Day  card
size:  6"w x 7"h

Created: April 8, 2015

Got another one of Suzanne eCut files and really liked the look of it, so of course had to cut it... And again paired it up with some of my quilled flowers, this time Blue/White multi coil petals.

I'm using a couple quotes on the inside from Quietfire Design as well as the 2 eCut files from Suzanne available on the Silhouette onLine store.

("Butterfly Circle - May the Wings" 5pce set); ("Twirl & Enjoy" 3pce set); eCut file "Garden Vine Panel Card" & "Celebrate"

I eCut the Garden Vine card removing the perforations for the fold. Scored the card to offset the front at 2.75"w. Painted the front panel only using Distress acrylic daubers "Mowed Lawn" and "Forest Moss". Dried, then adhered a piece of white Ruche cardstock to the back of the opening.

eCut the word "Celebrate at 6.5"w and a shadow layer. Inked the top layer with Versafine "Toffee" and sprinkled with 3 colors of embossing powder, returning the excess back to the container before sprinkling with the next powder ("Lettuce", Metallic Finish Green, Queen's Gold") - heat set. Painted the shadow layer with "Antique Linen" acrylic dauber, when dry adhered the 2 layers together and then on to the left side of the card front. Keeping the card closed, trimmed the inside including the eCut word to 6"w.

Adhered the quilled elements at the end adding the large white half pearls.

On the inside: Cut another vine piece to use as a stencil and the same daubers as the front. It did seep under the stencil a bit, so when dry, I used the stencil again and an olive colored pencil to outline the design.

Stamped the quotes using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Used a Quickie glue pen and Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Dark Gold" for the little butterfly detail.

eCut an ampersand, inked with the black and embossed with Black embossing powder and adhered to card.

Embossed the right side using Anna Griffin "Rosa" embossing folder and my hard rubber mallet. Hit the high points with "Tumbled Glass" and my dirty pink sponge... The pink was way too strong, so used my acrylic dauber "Picket Fence" and painted over it lightly, dried and hit the high points again with the blue pad. Much better...

The larger butterfly is a detail from the Garden Vine set. I serendipitously cut it at a good size as a butterfly on an embossing folder (Couture Creations "Serene" from the Serenity collection) using my mallet. Hit the high points with "Tumbled Glass" and sponged with a dirty green sponge.

Adhered the butterfly only partially so it would act as  a closer for  the front. Added the green rhinestones for the body.
