Vertical Birthday Wishes Card Making Tutorial

Hello and Happy New Year! Thanks again to everyone that participated in the Season's Givings Blog Hop. My winner is posted here in case you missed it. Today I have a card featuring images from my latest stamp set, Vertical Greetings from Gina K Designs.

 Start by stamping the poppy image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

 Start coloring with Copic marker YR07.

 Add YR04.

 Then add YR12.

 And fill in with YR000.

 For the stems, use YG95. After coloring, cut out the image.

 Cut and emboss ivory cardstock using Spellbinders® A2 Matting Basics A and sponge Memento Pistachio ink while still in the die template.

Stamp the vertical sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I adhered the flowers to the die cut using 3D Foam Squares. The card base is made using Pure Luxury Fresh Asparagus cardstock and I embossed a frame using A2 Matting Basics A again. To finish the card, I embossed a strip of vellum using Spellbinders Harlequin M'Bossibilities™ side B added vertically to the side of the card base, along with a strip of DCWV Burlap Paper added horizontally.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm comfy here in California, but thinking of all of you who are suffering bitter cold temperatures. Stay safe and warm!
