This card was made playing around with some designer papers and a slightly different cut.  The front of the card is roughly 4″ x 4″ while the back of the card is a regular size of 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.


The flower was stamped, and water was immediately spritzed on it before the ink could dry.  This allowed the ink to react and blend with the water on some areas of the flower.


Lots of fun challenges:

  12. Oh, I like the unusual and very creative cut and design! I’d never thought of doing that with a top fold card, but I’ll file the idea away for future reference. Love your use of the pretty designer paper. A wonderful and fun birthday card. Good to see you, Susan!
