40th Birthday Flowers

Hello there, today I have a card to share that I made back in August for my Sister-in-Law for her 40th Birthday. I am now finally getting around to sharing it.

I started off by stamping the WPlus9 Kind Soul flowers on to a panel of Fabriano watercolour paper with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. The panel was then coloured using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens, a paintbrush and water (the colours I used are listed below the supplies section). Once the panel was dry, I die cut it using the largest rectangle die in the Mama Elephant Cloud Nine die set.

I then took the Altenew Mega Numbers dies and die cut the 4 and 0 from the middle. I cut a further four numbers from white cardstock. I adhered the panel flat to an A2 white card base with tape runner and then stacked the white cardstock numbers up and added them in to the gaps. The image panel ones were added on top to complete the design through the panel.
I stamped the sentiment from the WPlus9 Strictly Sentiments 1 stamp set on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was then cut in to a strip and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Sparkling Clear Sequins.
