PTI’s January 2013 Blog Hop…Card #3

ETA (01/27/2013): A much better photo of this card~

Here is another card I made for the Blog Hop:

First, let me apologize for the photo quality. It was raining today and I had to take my photos indoors under very poor lighting conditions.  This photo doesn’t do the card justice.  This card is so much prettier in person.

What I did: I stamped the background with the woodgrain pattern in VersaMark ink.  What inspired this background pattern was the very table I craft on!  It looks just like my table!  Inspiration is definitely all around! :)  I stamped the small flower in Pixie Dust then the details in Rocket Red.  The larger flower is stamped in Rosebud and the details were also stamped in Rocket Red.  The centers to both flowers were stamped in London Fog (it’s probably hard to see).  The leaves were stamped on kraft cardstock in VersaMark ink.  The flower & leaf elements were all fussy cut.  The large flower is mounted on with foam tape.  The flags were originally going to be just kraft cardstock.  But, I felt it needed something more and I decided to cover them in washi tape and then stapled them to the panel.  I’m really glad I did that.  I think it gave the card a little more balance.  The panel was then adhered to the card base with foam tape.

I’m really happy with how this card turned out.  I enjoyed the creative process and I love how the colors just pop off the black background.  It was definitely a fun card to make.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!
