Mixed Media Birthday Card

I was challenged to use Junk Mail on a project.  My flowers are made with envelopes.  The security envelopes (many of them) have some great patterns to them.

The flowers were die cut with a Spellbinders die and painted with different Tattered Angels paints or mists.  I even painted the centers of the flowers.  The ribbon was colored with one of the paints which had a little water added to them.  The perfect way to get a coordinating ribbon for your project.

The background paper from Canvas Corp was painted with their Gerber Baseboard Paint.

I cut a strip of the paper and painted the backside and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on the paper.  The sentiment was matted in black.  I did distress the edges of all the paper.

Canvas Corp Brand Black & Ivory French Script

Tattered Angels High Impact Paint – Yellow

Tattered Angels Baseboard Mist Paint – Iris

Tattered Angels Baseboard Mist Paint – Gerber


I am going to enter the card in the monthly challenge at Happy Little Stampers where the challenge is texture.

The texture begins is the distressing along the edges of the paper and then the flowers have texture in them with their different layers and the bow.

Thanks for stopping by.
