Have A Blooming Happy Birthday


Hello everyone, today I have a birthday card which was made for a friend.  I wanted to make a bright summery card and chose to use a gelli plate background which I made previously using yellow and orange distress inks and added stencilling and stamping and a 3D butterfly to it. 



I used Paper Artsy Jofy Collection JOFY11 stamps and Paper Artsy PS059 flower stencil on the gelli plate background using ripe persimmon distress ink to add a contrasting colour with a little broken china on the butterfly wings, dots of white Sharpie pen were added to the center of the flowers.  The gelli panel was mounted onto two papermilldirect white hemp card squares then onto a pre scored yellow card blank.  The butterfly was stamped onto a scrap piece of card, coloured  cut out and attach over the stamped image.



As the butterfly stamp was on my desk I stamped it onto the envelope for a little added extra.


Pop over to the papermilldirect blog to see my tutorial showing how I made the gelli plate background.
