Sugar Nellie Country Garden Birthday Card

Morning Everyone,

Today I am showing you a card I have made for my friend.

The card is made using a Sugar Nellie stamp called Country Garden, as it is summer I thought a nice summer colour would be appropriate and went for yellow. The card is an A5 card blank in a cream/yellow colour, half the card is covered in backing paper with yellow flowers and purple bows on it. I went for this backing paper to pull the purple out from her top. The image is stamped and coloured in using Promarker pens and then mounted onto a Nestabilitie Die, which has been chalked in green. The card is finished with a bow, gems, a handmade flower and a greeting made from the Cricut Machine using Create a Critter saying "Happy Birthday"
