Lavender Bouquet Birthday
by Trina Pham


Hello everyone.  I have a CAS (clean and simple) mini slimline birthday card to share today featuring the Lavender Bouquet dies from the 2022 May release.  

Started by die cutting the lavender flowers from scraps of Bristol paper.  Using a foam blending tool, added Shaded Lilac distress oxide ink (DOx) to the flower sections.  Used the direct-to-paper method to add Shabby Shutters distress ink (DI) to the stems.  A dark purple Tombow alcohol marker was then used to give it some texture and dimension.  Created the vase by die cutting from alcohol marker friendly paper using a Nested Globes die then trimming off the rounded end to get a flat edge.  Added shading to it with Copic Sketch markers C1, C0 and C00.  


The white card base and the background panel were trimmed to 3.25”x6.25” from heavy weight white cardstock next.  On the panel, stamped the sentiment from Poppy Stamps Birthday Blowout with Shaded Lilac DOx ink and heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder.  Masked off the left side and bottom, then ink blended Blueprint Sketch DI.  Splattered with white and black gouache paint for some texture.  Assembled to finish.

That does it from me.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.
