Flower Basket in Oval Cut-Out

Happy Birthday card with Flower Basket in oval cut-out.

“Flower Basket” was stamped on ecru card stock with a black Memories ink pad and colored with Glaze pens. Prior to coloring, a mask was cut and the background was sponged with a sea sponge using a Champagne Encore pad. The edge of the oval cut out was edged with a moss green Color Box Cat’s Eye pad and this piece was layered under the cut out. Background paper was glued to the back of the front of the card and an eyelet was set in the lower right corner which was edged with the moss green pad. The corner was then folded up and attached with double sided tape. “Happy Birthday” was stamped with a dusty rose PSX stamp pad on ivory card stock, trimmed with deckle scissors, edged with the moss green pad and placed at the top right corner of the card.
