Daffodil Gate Fold Card



I felt like coloring today, but wanted to color something new, so I dug out some of my dover books. I saw this design in the Art Nouveau Stained Glass Pattern Book, and decided to turn it into a gate fold card. It's not as pretty as I had hoped it would be. I traced the design, then transferred it onto some white Core'dinations Pearl Cardstock, then went over the transfer with a gold Gelyroll pen, and colored it with Copics. At first, I only colored the flowers and leaves, but it looked kind of boring, so I colored in the background with a pale purple.

Then I cut around the design, and tried to find something that would fit in the opening.I finally decided on this stamp from JustRite, and stamped it with VersaMark, embossed it with gold EP, and colored the bird with Copics.

Last, I used Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles to cut it out, and shaded it with Brilliance Lavender.

Pretty, I like your gatefold card, reminds me of spring...I am counting the days...smile...
Sounds like you have a lot of snow your way...we didn't get as much as they were calling for around here...sure did not disappoint me...I'm not crazy about snow. But it does make for nice crafting days...
Hope you are keeping warm and having a good week. Blessings, Jill
