Hi everyone,

Coralynn here back on the BRI blog with another card.

I was inspired by my very talented and fellow DT member Marcie.  She did the colour blending in the middle of a card to help with a focal point and loved it so much I did something very similar to mine.

I started out with a couple of distress inks and blended them mostly in the centre of the card and overlapped them in the middle to give it more of a greener colour.  I took a background stamp from Hero Arts (any background stamp you have will work for this) and stamped it on with Versamark ink and heat set it just to have a bit of interest.

I them used the Lawn Fawn stitched oval dies and it's the two largest dies from the large set (wow that's a mouthful!)  I taped them together and ran them through my die cutting machine and to give it some interest I popped up the middle panel on foam tape.  

I then die cut out the flowers from Paper Smooches out of white card stock and glued them directly to the popped up panel and then added some glitter with the Wink of Stella glitter brush just because everything is better with glitter!

 I added the sentiment with Versafine black ink on a banner and popped it up with foam tape to the front panel.

Don't forget to stop by the BRI shop to have a look at the awesome crafty goodness Vanessa always has!

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!
