This was for my friend’s birthday a few weeks ago. I found a gorgeous gift bag with 1920s images on it, and decided to make a card to match. The main colours on the bag (other than black) were pink and turquoise so I focused on using them.
The art deco stamp was stamped onto white paper, then coloured with chalks for a soft pastel effect. This was mounted onto a metallic cream cardstock that had a slight pattern. This in turn was mounted on turquoise cardstock that had been embossed with flourishes using my manual die cutting and embossing machine. The cream base card was stamped repeatedly with a lily flourish stamp and then the assemblage was placed on top.
Envelope has been stamped with the same lily flourish as the card. a large white paper flower has been attached and a pink pearl added to the centre.
