Elizabeth Craft Designs: Surprise! Happy Birthday Els Blog Hop!

Surprise! Happy Birthday Els Blog Hop

It's Els van de Burgt's birthday and what better way to celebrate then to celebrate with a surprise Birthday Blog Hop with the Elizabeth Crafts Design Team! Happy Birthday Els!

Here is my birthday card for you:
This card was created using Elizabeth Craft Designs Floral Background stamp. I don't use my background stamps enough and I love when I get an opportunity to colour and use my copics. So for my card today I decided to create a spotlight card. Colouring in only a section of the card and leaving the rest as is - simply stamped in grey ink. 

After the card front was stamped I restamped the image using black ink on a copic friendly card that I had die-cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs - Stitched Fishtails. This section was coloured in. Before I assembled my card together I added twine to the top of my fish tail and elevated it using foam tape. I also die-cut my card front using Elizabeth Craft Designs - Dashing Rectangles die and adhered this to a cardbase. Of course it wouldn't be completed without some glitter and sequins. I also added extra interest by applying glossy accents to small areas of the flowers.

Supplies Used:

Kids Choice Glue

Copic Markers
Copic Friendly Card
Grey Cardstock
3d Foam Tape/Glue Dot
Paper Trimmer
Glossy Accents
Wink of Stella - Clear
