It’s my mum’s birthday today and I wanted to make her a special card. She loves flowers so I decided to use the stunning beautiful branches thinlit dies to create some hydrangeas. I started by silver embossing my sentiment on a piece of whisper white cardstock measuring 5.5″ x 5.5″, using the Watercolor Words stamp set.
Next I die cut the flowers and stems for my hydrangeas from some dazzling diamonds glimmer paper. Once all the parts of my flowers had been die cut, I set about watercolouring the glimmer paper flowers in bermuda bay and island indigo, pink pirouette and rose red, and wisteria wonder and perfect plum, and the stems and leaves in pear pizzazz and cucumber crush.
I adhered the hydrangeas to my card front using the fine tip glue pen and added rhinestones to the centres of each flower for a little sparkle. Finally, I die cut the ‘mum’ using the retired little letters dies from silver foil sheets, before adhering them with dimensional strips, and finishing with a metallic enamel heart. I attached my card front to a whisper white card base measuring 5 3/4″ x 5 3/4″ to make the flowers really pop. Happy Birthday Mum, hope you have a wonderful day 😘😘😘❤️
