I selected textured cardstock for the card base. Squares were cut from white, gold and coral cardstock and two DSP designs. They were adhered and popped up with Fun Foam. I purposely die cut a circle frame in a smaller size so it would sit behind the flower when adhered to the card.
The flower and leaf images were stamped on white cardstock with Memento ink, color blended with alcohol markers and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. This gives the images a lovely patina. The floral image was fussy-cut and popped up with Fun Foam when adhered to the card. The petals were curled to add depth. The leaves were also fussy cut. I shaped and rolled the leaves for dimension and tucked them behind the flower with glue dots.
The wavy feature was die cut from cardstock and adhered to the card. Wink of Stella (clear) was added to give a soft shine but typically does not appear in photos.
To finish the card, I added sequins in orange, green and gold and touched up the center of the flower with Dazzling Details in gold. The inside of the card was finished with a piece of white cardstock and a coordinating wavy feature.
Have some fun and join in the challenge at the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 (SSW2) Challenge blog. In the meantime, I'll be driving into town to buy toner for my printer!
