Band Together

This is the birthday card I sent to Buffy (you all know who Buffy is by now) earlier this month.  Well, I probably sent it in August because you also know I am always early.  In any case, I wanted to send her something special and not one of my usual quick and easy cards.

To make her card I first embossed the flowers from the stamp set called Band Together using Versamark and White Embossing Powder.  Then I colored them using the light and dark Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Old Olive and Soft Suede Stampin’ Up!® Blends.  I actually tried to find a real flower that is similar to this one and color it as correctly as I could.  I am not the best colorer but I think I did pretty well on this card.  Blends make colorer so much easier because they blend so well together.  Then I cut the flowers out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered that to a piece of 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Brights in Old Olive.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut it out also using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I couldn’t find one that fit perfectly but you can make your own size by cutting it multiple times.  Here is a picture on how I did it.
