My amazing and beautiful sister-in-law has a birthday coming up and I wanted to make her a nice card. She is sweet and sassy, and when I saw the Color Challenge with Dimension over on Embellish Magazine, I was inspired to make this card. The colors are vibrant and fun, just like Lizz.
For this card, I wanted the colors and the dimension to be the main focus, so I didn't actually do any stamping. Instead, I cut out and popped up a frame in Bermuda Bay and then colored and layered some chipboard flowers to match the color scheme. I ran some ribbon through the frame across my embossed background and added a stem and popped up some leaves for more dimension. The sentiment is a rub-on and for a final touch I paper pierced a simple line along the bottom of the card.
