Flower Patch with Flower Fair and Large Number Framelits WWYS #62

I have been commissioned to make some very special anniversary cards for Volunteers at my husband work Vision Australia. This card was made for a lovely lady Judy who I actually used to work with for 15 years service. I have used the What Will You Stamp #62 Challenge Blog as a starter for the card by using the Flower Patch stamp set.

As Judy is partially sighted I have played with texture, dimension and colour contrast on this card. I started with choosing the Brights Collection of Colours. Next I die cut all the flower and leaf shapes from the Flower Fair Framelits in Very Vanilla card stock and stamped them with Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Inks using the matching Flower Patch stamp set. I arranged the flowers and leaves into a Rich Razzleberry card stock piece embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder both flat and on Stampin' Dimensionals. I created the numbers by using the Large Number Framelit to cut "15" from our Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (which is rough) and adhered using double layered Dimensionals so they can more easily be felt. The card from was adhered to a Thick Whisper White card base. To finish the card I added Fine tip Glue pen to the leaves to add shine and a smooth texture.

If you would like to see some of how I made this card and some chat with friends. Please head over to Periscope to have a look. For those who don't have Periscope you can download the app to you mobile to tablet.
