When these tough times come upon us, sometimes we need a quick card to show our appreciation. I decided to use the new and fun SP & Company set, Mix 'n Match: Family. Such a wonderful and versatile set with a gorgeous swirly font for some of the larger, leading words and a type font for all the members of a family from your grandmother to your niece!
I wanted to use a sentiment as the focal point of this card and was searching my stash for something to alter. I came across these plain white, paper flowers and decided to customize them for my needs. I think I have converted myself to altering embellishments with my Copics from now on!
First, I picked out the designer paper I wanted to use on the card and matched my Copics. I then set about to color the flowers. These flowers have a nice texture, so all I had to do was lay down my lightest color as the base, swipe the medium red up from the center to about the middle of the petal, and swipe the darkest red from the center out just below the medium red. The flower is finished off with some die cut felt leaves and a yellow glitter brad.
Versafine Onyx Black ink. I use a clear detail embossing powder and never have trouble with beautiful coverage. Some dimensional foam tape pops the designer paper up from the card base and you have a beautiful, customized card for a friend in a matter of minutes!
