Center Step Card - Mudra Lotus Blooms

Hi friends, today I have a very special card to share. It's special because after a long time I made a special fold card.  As I was looking at my old creations, I realised how many different types of folds we used to create as opposed to the simple top folding cards that we make nowadays. So I thought why not try something different with these beautiful watercolored Lotus Blooms.

To begin with, I watercolored and fussy cut my stamped images. Then I created a center step card base and distressed the front part with distress inks. I splattered some water droplets on it to give a nice look on the background. I adhered a couple die cut image on the first step fold and added the lotus bud and a leaf at the last fold of the center step card. 

I arranged the floral images and leaves on the front portion of the card and embellished it with some mdf leaves and added a few sequins to complete the card.

Sending Hugs - PABD Humming Blossom

Hello everyone!! I am back with another card using PABD Humming Blossom Stamp Set. I ordered myself some of their newest releases and got my friend who visited India recently, to bring them for me here in Manila. I also wanted to try out their stencil so took out my Dreamweaver Stencils Metallic Gold embossing paste and created the layered background using it. 

To start with, I took a big sheet of paper, almost 6x8", and embossed it all at once so that I can use it for various cards. Trimmed down a part of it for this card and adhered it to the card base using a strong double sided tape. Before that I also distressed the edges a bit to give a torn look. 

I stamped the floral branches several times on watercolor paper using Versamark ink and embossed it with Ranger Gold Embossing Powder. Then I colored them all in different colors using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. 

I used a die cut to create a focal image for my card. Then I stuck the floral branch on the bottom right using foam squares. I trimmed a part of the branch to stick it towards the top left of the die cut. It made it look as if the bird was sitting on the branch. 

To embellish my card further, I added lots of seed beads and few rhinestones here and there to add glitz to the card. 

The sentiment is also from PABD - Lotus Delight Stamp Set. I embossed it in white and popped it with foam tape on the card. 

The card actually has a royal look with all the gold in the background and gold embossing and golden beads. The pictures are not doing full justice to it :( But I hope you do get the idea :) 

Here is a look at the card from various angles.

This is the all the coloring that I was referring to earlier :D

Thanks a lot for dropping by!!
