A Quick Card

I needed to make a card for a birthday quickly so decided that I would use a Stampavie image and used Sarah Kay's Juliet in the field of nasturtiums and coloured it with Copic sketch pens.  I really like this image and it is quick to colour in.

After colouring, the image was cut out using Spellbinders Lacy Ovals. This was mounted onto another Spellbinders oval die cut.  The backing paper was one that I had in my stash but I cannot remember what is was.  The edge was made with Martha Stewart Floral Band Double Edge Punch.

The flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I wrapped a ribbon around the background card and fastened with a bow. 

The greeting was a peel off and again a Spellbinder die was used to cut the tag to put the peeloff on.   


  1. Lovely card Elaine, the image is gorgeous, the papers and detail are fab.

    Hugs Julie x

  2. Hi Elaine, I love this card especially the image which you've coloured to perfection. I'll be at Jayne's workshops in June and the first one in July so hope to see you there.xx

  3. This card is gorgeous. The image is so sweet. And I love the tartan background paper.
