Today is the birthday of my best friend, Kathryn, and the card I'm sharing with you is her birthday card.
As I always have to post her card, as she doesn't live near to me, I've kept the embellishments quite flat so that it would go in the envelope ! I started with the background and used a Wendy Vecchi background stamp which I've stamped in Coffee Archival ink. I've then blended Stormy Sky DI over it. The butterfly wings are from an Oxford Impressions set and I've stamped them with the Coffee Archival ink too. The doily is a Tim Holtz die that Santa very kindly brought me, and I've blended Old Paper, Tea Dye and Vintage Photo DI over it. The luggage ticket is also a Wendy Vecchi stamp and has been aged using DI.
The main image is one of my favourite stamps at the moment and is also from the Oxford Impressions set as is the sentiment. They've both had Old Paper and Stormy Sky DI blended over them. The ribbon is seam binding and I've used Weathered Wood and Faded Denim Distress Stains to colour it. The card has arrived safely and, unlike last year, I actually remembered to write on the inside too !
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
