Today's card I'm sure you will find a little different. I needed a birthday card for my nephew's bride. Since it was her first birthday in our family, I wanted to do something special for her.
One of their tattoos is very unique, at least to me. I decided I wanted to use that in her card design.
Here's the completed card, and then I'll go through how I made it work.
To make this card, I took their photo into Photoshop and used one of the filters to make a photocopy of the color print.
I've referenced below the Copic colors that I used.
Her fingernails of course needed lots of sparkle. For the "Pinkie" finger I added clear Wink of Stella . The two 'Gold' colored nails are then covered with Platinum Stickles. For the other 'Red' one, I added Silver Stickles over the design she had on the nail. Also on her engagement ring, I added the Silver Stickles as well.
For the background I used Penny Blacks, Paper Scroll, which it's hard to see the stitching with the patterned paper. When you glance below, you can see how the die is stitched like a Treasure Map under the list of Products. That of course led me to the scripture from Matthew 6:21... perfect for her birthday.
It was easy to measure the space available and generate the scripture in two pieces to fit. I printed those on the light gray, die cut with a small oval and added them to the card. I used a light gray cardstock to make the card base to fit about 1/2" bigger than the paper scroll and secured the completed image to the card base. I also die cut another Paper Scroll out of white cardstock and secured it inside to send my message to her.
