CAS-ual Friday: Delicate Branches card

A simple birthday card I made for someone special...

Hero Arts Delicate Branches background stamp & SRM sticker sentiment

It was made this way:


1) Cut a piece of kraft coloured cardstock to size (to fit a standard card).
2) Stamp Hero Arts Delicate Branches stamp in Frost White Colorbox ink.
3) Cover stamping with white embossing powder & heat with a heat gun.
4) Colour the branches, flowers and some leaves) with Copic markers.
5) Apply Distress Ink (with foam applicator) to softly colour the edges.
6) Add the kraft cardstock image to some turquoise cardstock (for a mat).
7) Stick it on a white top-fold card & add the SRM sticker on a little flag.

a gorgeous weekend,
