We have new neighbors who moved here from out of State... so felt a welcome to California was called for!
Here is a side view that allows you to see the "banner" greeting:
IMAGES: "Poppy Bottles" from Stampendous Clear Stamps; letters are from All Night Media "Jazz" font
Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the image panel; Greeting is on Georgia Pacific "white" at 110 # wt. CS; blue base card from my endless stash Neenah
INKS: Image stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics: Vase – BG0000, 000, 01; Flowers – YR02, 04, 07, 09; GR82, 94; W7 Greeting stamped with Versafine Black, edges distressed with Ranger's Distress Inks - "Tumbled Glass"
TECHNIQUE: The image was stamped twice and colored and then, using a ruler, I drew a light pencil frame which intersected the image on four points, allowing the image to “escape” the frame. I used a craft knife then to cut out the frame and the flowers and vase outside the frame. I used distress ink around the edge and then foam tape to mount the panel up off the base card. The 2nd copy of poppies is cut out, sculpted and mounted with foam tape on the top of the originals. The greeting is stamped on a long, narrow piece of paper, the ends are V-cut, scored twice on each end and finally mounted on the front of the card with foam tape to raise the center. The ends are folded under to complete the 3-D banner.
