HAPPY FAMILY DAYS - CARD

Hi Everyone! This is Holly and I have a birthday card to share with you today. 
My 'flower' is made using Spirelli and if you are not familiar with it, you can find great instructions HERE.  It reminds me of the Spirograph set I had as a kid.
This card uses paper from PRIMA which was cut to fully cover the card base and another piece was used to cut the oval using SPELLBINDERS NESTIBILITIES FLORAL OVALS .
SPELLBINDERS SHAPEABILITIES FOLIAGE was used to cut the leaves from scraps of the same Prima paper. All these pieces were sponged along the edges using RANGER DISTRESS INK in Forest Moss, with the leaves being fully covered in the ink, then crumpled and pinched into shape.
The oval had Victorian Velvet ink added and the base piece had Victorian Velvet and Tea Dye sponged on as well.
After stamping Happy Birthday from HAPPY FAMILY DAYS with jet black ARCHIVAL INK  a scallop circle die from SPELLBINDERS NESTIBILITIES SCALLOPED CIRCLES was used to cut the base for the spirelli. After the thread wrapping was completed, Victorian Velvet ink was sponged over the edges. The same ink was used to stamp the four corners of the base piece, using the decorative designs from the HOME-CONGRATULATIONS set, masking the house from the image.
Forest Moss ink was used to stamp the FLOURISH onto the oval.
To complete this card, the base layer and oval were attached to a folded card base. Foam dots were applied to the spirelli blossom and it was positioned over the flourish stem. The leaves were tucked under the edge of the blossom and ribbon accents were added.
I love how the inks, papers and ribbon match so nicely.
 
Again, another fun time working with great products from Quietfire Design.
Thank you for stopping by!

  3. I love all the details of this lovely card and the clever use of the scroll as a stem for your sweet spirelli flower.
