Hello friends! I hope you all have arrived safely in the new year and I wanted to delight you with a fresh and new card right at the start of this wonderful 2016!
I thought that this birthday card I made last year (well, 2015 🙂 ) was the perfect card to begin the new year we just welcomed. And I needed something else than christmas cards, of which I don’t want to see anything anymore for the next 10 months. For this card, I used a Penny Black cling stamp and colored it with Copic Markers. I was inspired by my crafty friend Sonja Kerkhoffs who made me want this stamp really badly.
Since the friend I sent this to likes, well, darker colors, I decided to challenge her with my bright and happy florals. I added a few dots (yes, that’s for all of you who moan when I don’t add them) with my Copic markers around the flowers; I also added a few white dots on top of the flowers and black dots on the leaves. Of course there had to be some sequins by Pretty Pink Posh to add sparkle.
Since I noticed that my crafty friend (for whom I made this card) often uses small strips of paper or color to accentuate her cards, I did the same and added a small strip of double sided adhesive to the side and poured glitter on top to make it spaaaarkly 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this fresh and colorful start into the new year. May your crafty spirits be strong, your health lasting, your happiness growing, and your dreams fulfilled 🙂
