Happy Birthday with Gayatri

Hey everyone, Welcome! This is Gayatri with you. My last project for July here. I have a floral card to share with you today. I also created a bokeh background for the floral cluster. Here is the card for you.

If you are following me on Instagram, you will know I am sharing distress ink blends each day. The background I used here is blend #4. The colours I have used on this background are Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserve, Ripe Persimmon, Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed Distress inks.  Then I used W&W’s Scenery: Bigger Bang Confetti stamp set (limited edition) to stamp solid circles on the background using white pigment ink to create bokeh background. Since the background is colourful and busy, I want to keep the focal point simple and clean. So I white heat embossed the images from In Bloom Addie’s Garden stamp set on heavy weight vellum. Then used the coordinating cutaway to die cut them and glue to form a floral cluster. I adhered this cluster on the middle of the background panel.

For the sentiment, I die cut In a Word: Happy cutaway in black and gold glitter. I glued them slightly off set to make the gold glitter as the drop shadow for the black die cut. I know its not traditional. Usually its black die cut that is the drop shadow. I adhered the Happy sentiment on the middle of the floral cluster. The secondary sentiment is white heat embossed on a strip fo white cardstock and sponged with Carved Pumpkin distress ink. I adhered this below the large die cut sentiment using foam adhesive. Finally to finish off some sparkle from jewels.

Here are couple of closeups of the card.
