Hello, today's card is a shaped easel card.
This card began as an A4 sheet of silver mirror board that I scored in half and then die cut using Spellbinders 'grand large scallop oval' dies. Next I die cut a mat for the top and bottom parts of the card from glitter card using the same dies as the card base. These were adhered to the card blank, taking care to only adhere the top one half way, which I did by adding the glue to the bottom half of the card only and adding the mat to it. Using some patterned paper I die cut and embossed a mat for the bottom of the card using Spellbinders 'labels 14' die. From the same patterned paper I die cut and embossed mat using Spellbinders 'grand large scallop' die for the top part of the card. These were them adhered to the glitter card.
Next on white card I stamped the sentiment and main image using Crafters Companion SWALK stamp set 'Old friend'. These were cut out and embossed using Spellbinders die labels 14 for the sentiment and grand large scallop for the main image. Whilst they were still in the dies I distressed the edges with evergreen bough distress ink. The sentiment was stamped with a flower stamp from the same stamp set and some ladybirds from a Country Companions stamp set. These were coloured with promarkers as they were stamped with black soot distress ink. The main image was again coloured with promarkers and glossy accents was added to the water to make it look real. Gems were added to the centers of the largest 2 flowers. Two butterflies from my stash were also added to finish off the card. Finally the sentiment and topper were adhered to the card base.
Hope you like this one, I think everyone has someone they regard as an old friend.
