One-layered Birthday card

Saturday, 26 December 2015

Heyy friends !!

Here's wishing you all a merry and joyous Christmas !! I'm sure most of you must be busy enjoying the holidays with your near and dear ones :)

I'm quickly sharing a card I made yesterday. It's a one-layered , very clean and simple card I made for my grandmother who will be celebrating her birthday on the 31st of this month. :)  I hope she likes it.

Here's the card (please click on the image to view it in it's original size and best quality):--

So, I started off by stamping three floral images on the folded card base, 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 in size. Stamped the same images thrice on a piece of masking tape, fussy cut these and used them for masking the stamped images on the card base. After masking, sponged some distress inks around them to create a sweet little garden scenery. Then, removed the masks off the flowers and water coloured them using distress inks. The stem and the tiny leaves were hand drawn.
Finally, stamped the birthday sentiment and added a white pearl each in the centre of the flowers to add some interest to this CAS one-layered card.

That's it. Quick. Clean. Simple. Pretty. Don't you think? :)

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a beautiful day !
