ABC F for Festive

Our challenge at ABC for the next couple of weeks is F for Festive. We will accept, Birthday, Easter or Christmas as a festive card. I have chosen birthday for mine. We are sponsored by Magnolia-licious.

F Festive

I cut the card base and the patterned paper mats with a Go Kreate die. Luckily the embossed mats which were pre-cut, pretty much matched the shape of my Go Kreate dies. I inked my embossed mats to tone in with the multicolour patterned paper. My image is from Lili of The Valley and I have coloured her with the same distress inks that I used to ink the two embossed mats on the card. The patterned papers are from Craftwork Cards and the embossed mats are also from Craftwork Cards. I thought the emboss pattern looked similar to the multicolour pattern on one of my papers, which both came from the Refresher pad.

My flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, apart from the tiny purple ones which were from Anna Marie Designer. The butterflies are all Doo Hickey dies. The die peeking out from beneath the flowers is Joy Crafts’ 8 Pointed Start die.
