Hello, Hello, Hello! Happy Weekend! I hope that you have some wonderful plans! We are having lovely, sunny weather! After I spend some quality “me time” Stamping, I’m hoping to have the opportunity to go skiing and am just keeping my fingers crossed that nothing gets broken! I also wanted to take this opportunity to share this card with you….. Blackberry Bliss is one of my favorite colors and I think it works out so well with the Art Gallery Bundle.

Getting Started:

Colors used are Blackberry Bliss, Basic White, and Mossy Meadow.
The base of this card is Blackberry Bliss (measurement: 11″ x 5 1/2″), then folded in half and creased with the bone folder. The next layer is Basic White Cardstock (measurement: 4″ X 51/4″) and embossed using the Painted Texture Embossing Folder.

How to make the Art Gallery flower:

The Pretty Perennals bundle by Stampin' up! is used.
To make the flower, first stamp Blackberry Bliss (the darker color), then stamp Razzleberry (the lighter color) over top. When I stamped the Rich Razzleberry, I stamped it off on a piece of scrap paper first, resulting in a lighter color.

How to use the Gold Special Effect:

Additionally, the the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder is used to give the background some texture.
The gold that highlights the flower was done as follows: Squeeze a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on a scrap of paper. Using a straight pin, transfer tiny amounts of glue to strategic spots on the flower. (I was only wanting a few hints of gold to show). Press gold leafing into the glue and let dry, 1-2 minutes. Brush of the residue…. A small stipple brush works well. Adhere the flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Completing your Art Gallery Bundle card….

This card further uses Gilded Leafing Embellishment and Fine Art Ribbon from the Fine Art Gallery Suite Collection.  The Gold Enamel Glitter Dots further embellish this project.
The leaf was stamped in Mossy Meadow, die cut, then glued to the card front. “Happy Birthday” as stamped in Blackberry Bliss (Measurement: 3/8″ X 2″). The Fine Art 3/8″ ribbon is cut to 2 1/2″ long. Both the ribbon and the “Happy Birthday” are adhered with Tear and Tape. Finally, the gold glitter enamel dots are provide a subtle accent to complete this card. (Alternatively, you could use the elegant faceted gems that I am giving away for FREE this month with a $50 Order if you wish :). I hope that you’ve enjoyed this card made with the Art Gallery Bundle.
