I had fun making this card, and tried a new die as well as a new technique.
Love this die and how it cuts just part of the card, and you can have the drama of the under layer showing through.
As it was a birthday card I embossed the sentiment in gold, (despite it looking bronze here)
The flowers, a freebie stamp with the Craft Stamper Magazine, designed by Elizabeth Borer, were stamped in Espresso ink and painted with twinkling H2O paints, masking them off to give a grouping and some dimension. Before adhering them I embossed them from behind to give some dimension, and added some foam tape to keep that dimension.
They still looked flat, so I stamped another flower, painted it and added it over the corner image, again embossing the petals and using foam tape - then I stamped another image and coloured the centre only and cut that out and embossed it and again used foam tape to keep the dimension - my first attempt at decoupage!!
This gives some idea of the finished dimension.
The final details were micro beads for the flower centers and some sequins.
