Welcome to the Altered Pages Blog today.
We are in the final days of our collaboration between the Altered Pages Design Team and Rubber Stamp Depot. Can I just tell you that I had a lot of fun incorporating the deeply etched red rubber stamps into my projects this month. Here is a sneak peak...
Today's post is part II of a journal page turned Birthday card
(original journal page pictured below) and the part I post can be found here.
I will be honest...I loved the journal page so much that it was hard to chop it in half, but I am very pleased with the end result and it is for a most wonderful person, my Gram who turns 86 this June! So, this card just had to be beautiful. Plus, she LOVES butterflies!
Okay, on with the show...
I started by creating the actual card using a cream colored sheet of card stock and folded it in half.
I inked the edges of the front of the card using Stazon Midi in Gothic Purple and Spiced Chai.Next, I grabbed the Circles Background Stamp , Versamark and Gold Embossing Powder and created a little embossed edge on the right side of the card.
I then attached the portion of the original journal page that I tore from my journal and inked the edges. I left justified this piece to show off the gold embossing.
Now, it was on to the inside of the card.I began this step by lightly and randomly stamping the entire page with Delicata Ink Pad - gold.
I then grabbed another page from my Dylusions Journal that I previously used to off load my brayer when working with my Gelli Plate as mentioned in part I. This was made with pale blue and gold metallic acrylic paint. I added the Circles Background Stamp using Stazon Midi in Spiced Chai .
This same stamp was used in the journal page so I wanted to repeat it on the inside of the card. I then tore a section to fit on the main inside page of the card and attached it using double sided adhesive tape.
Next, I used another section of the pale blue background, stamped Happy Birthday with Versamark and embossed it in gold. I hand tore that section out, inked the edges and adhered it with double sided tape . I added one of the butterfly images used in the original journal page to keep everything tied together.
And, here you have the completed inside of the card.
I love how the blue ties in with butterflies flying in the blue sky.
Here is the final piece.
I am pretty pleased I must say and can't wait to send it off
to one of my most favorite people!
