I have a Birthday card to share with you today. I have used the beautiful Catherine Scanlon Flower Frame 1 stamp which is available from The Artistic Stamper. I used the stamp for both the background and the main floral image. I also used my Gelli Plate to print the colour papers which I used for the flowers.
To start I printed the coloured paper. I added Distress Ink pads directly onto my Gelli Plate and then pulled off prints onto smooth white paper. The ink pads I used were Victorian Velvet, Tattered Rose, Aged Mahogany, Bundled Sage and Mustard Seed.
I then stamped Catherine Scanlon's Flower Frame 1 stamp onto the coloured papers with a Jet Black Archival ink pad. I cut out all the flowers, leaves and flower centres.
On a square card blank I stamped the Flower Frame stamp all-over with a Antique Linen Distress Ink pad. I stamped the sentiment using Walnut Stain Distress ink. The sentiment is from Grungy Greetings #1 set from The Artistic Stamper.
I printed another strip of paper on the Gelli Plate using the Antique Linen ink pad to colour the Gelli Plate. I cut a 'V' into the end of the strip before adding to the card blank. I added the cut-out flowers to the card.
To finish I added faux stitching, Glossy Accents to the centre of the flowers and dot of brown Dimension Pearls.
