A Friend

Hello my friends! Today I'd like to show you a card I made in the beginning of February. That time I was waiting our first flowers to bloom - Snowdrops and Snowflakes. They are very pretty and give hope that soon other colorful flowers will start to show their beauty. Our white flowers are blooming for few weeks now, but for Today they are all frozen - winter came back.

A day before I made this card a package arrived and it has a lovely flower dies (Blooms Four) from Spellbinder. I just had to try them out. I love these flower you can make with them. For my card I made three flowers. They all are a bit different from each other. Center of each die-cut is inked with Memento Dandelion ink. After assembling the flowers I added a pearl to the middle.

Leaves are also cut with new die - Sprigs by Spellbinder. I placed a 2 1/2" Tearif-ific tape to a strip of white cardstock and die cut two branches with leaves and one swirly sprig. After removing the protective sheet I covered sticky tape with Luau Green Microfine Glitter and burnished it in.
Tiny flower are made with Martha Stewart Flower box around the page punch. They are actually leftovers but I used them instead the border which for the punch is made for. Flowers are toned with Dandelion ink and I put small drops of Viva Pearl Pen in center of the.

Most awesome part about this card is the background. Sticker Paper was covered with Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft. It feels so soft and nice. Then I placed it between the embossing folder and run it through the die-cutting machine. 

Sentiment is from Shabby Chic Birdhouse Stamp Set #481. It's stamped with Tuxedo Black ink. Banner is hand cut and inked with Pear Tart Ink.
You can see full directions how this card is made in here.
