Seed Pearl Snowdrops...
how about another gentle card as an antidote to all the bright colours and lights of Christmas!
I stared by stamping the main element from the Snowdrops set in black archival ink onto coconut white card. I swapped the sentiment to the Chill its your birthday as I thought it more appropriate for the icy topping I was putting on. Next I cut out the stamped image using a circle die from Sue's first release . I then added a piece of double sided adhesive over the stamped image and cut it out by hand. then I added microbeads that show the image through but give a look as if the image has been frozen.
I matted these on more white card and from mounted them onto a few layers of card. I cut one of the Scandinavian borders and added antique white double sided ribbon ( the thin ribbon from the pack) over the centre and some white PVA dimensional glue at the junctions. I added the circle over the top and a bow with a shaped camellia flower to hide the knot.
A few double pierced layers ( sorry they are my favourite base dies so seem to be popping up on everything!) and finished.
Hopefully a gentle birthday card for anyone born in the winter of spring?!?
