Seeing the latest trend being slim cards I measured the card to achieve two slim and two normal A5 card fronts, then cut the slim from the A5 panel... see this post
For my A5 cards - I scored the middle - positioned the stencil and used Tattered Rose Distress Ink to blend over all the flowers, moving the stencil about too. Then I chose darker colours to add to the flower centres - DI Aged Mahogany on the left section and DI Abandoned Coral on the right -- and used a fine brush to deepen the centre spots.
For my first card I added a matching coral coloured layer and stamped and silver embossed the sentiment.
With the second card I stamped the sentiment in grey and clear embossed then added a deep red border layer and a brown card
I am posting these cards to NBUS challenge #16 ..... AND .... Seize the Birthday challenge #195 - Non-neutral card base ..... ALSO ..... Yes, Virginia July Show and Share.
