As promised… the whole card!

So here it is, the whole card that I have been teasing you with (sorry! 😀 )

I made this card for my Dad for his 80th Birthday! He does love to garden… so I thought I could give him flowers … right?

I used 2 new stamp sets called:

3 Step Hydrangea

Hydrangea-sample-wtrmk

Whole Family

Whole-Family-Stamps-wtrmk

Both will be available in the Kitchen Sink store on April 7th. I added the topiary stems, shading at the base of the vase and some extra shadowing on the leaves (so the flowers popped), using Copic markers along with the blender marker (love those markers!).

Hope you like what you see.

Materials Used:

Stamps: 3 Step Hydrangea and Whole Family from Kitchen Sink Stamps.

Paper: Very Vanilla, Bravo Burgundy and Night of Navy from Stampin’ Up!, Ivory Color Connect Stripe from The Paper Co. and Clover Velvet paper from SEI.
