Welcome to the Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Sweet Pea Release blog hop. You should have arrived here from Teresa’s blog. Let’s get into the card.
My card today was kept to a simple color palette of black and white. Using this color palette really puts the focus on the Sweet Pea. I stamped the image onto black cardstock with Versamark ink and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. Before I heat set it, I also stamped out a simple happy birthday sentiment to be heat embossed as well.
After I finished the heat embossing, I trimmed down the black cardstock so I could layer it on a piece of matte silver card panel which as a 1/4″ larger than the black panel.
Now it was time to adhere this panel to an A2 card base and add a few matte silver pearls to finish off the card.
