Hello everyone! I needed to make another birthday card and came across this SSS Bouquet of Flowers stencil that I hadn't had the chance to use - so I made a one-layer CAS (Clean and Simple) card with it:
I am SOOOO looking forward to spring - especially the last few days as it got gloomy and COLD here (and some more snow too) - so making this card was a good way to bring on Spring LOL!
I sponged various Distress Inks over the stencil which I then spritzed with my Distress Sprayer to create the splatter effect. I then rubbed on just a bit of the Tonic Nuvo Embellishment Mousse on the flowers and stems for a tiny bit of shimmer. It was really hard to capture in a picture - hence the odd angle - but in the light it shows up!
I finished off the inside of the card with another stencilled flower, and a sentiment from the SSS It's Your Birthday! stamp set, which as I mention in the video was designed by yours truly! Since I was making this card for a friend I thought it'd be nice to use a set that I designed on it as well :).
To see how this card came together check out my video below:
