Welcome Little One ~ LED Tea Light Vellum Card

There is an open challenge at MFT Stamps called “2016 Card Design Superstar” and I decided to participate. I love MFT Stamps and I figured what have I got to lose?

 

For my card below, I chose the Magical Dragons and Essential Sentiments stamp sets plus a whole bunch of die-namics I have in my stash.  The supplies I’ve used will all be listed down below.

 

I first stamped the images on Strathmore watercolor paper using VersaFine vintage sepia. Since the card is to welcome a little baby, I didn’t want to use black ink because I wanted the colors to be soft without any hard lines. I then used my Zig clean color brush markers to color the images. To make the colors softer and more pastel, I blended my coloring with my watercolor brush. Once I was satisfied with the colors, I set them out to dry and proceeded to partially die-cut the birch trees on my card base.  To build my forest scene, I die-cut the stitched cloud from the end of the rainbow die-namics set, rolling fence with the matching hill, grass fields, and I also used the stitched mountain die-namics to create the starry sky and cover my partial die-cutting on the top of the card.  I also die-cut the little hearts using tag builder blueprints no. 5.  It was a bit tricky to adhere the vellum cloud and the smoke speech bubble to the card but I was able to hide the adhesive behind.

 

Here are the photos of the card. I have taken a few shots with and without the LED tea light so you all can see how beautiful this turned out.

The last step I made was to stamp the smoke “speech bubble” using my Versamark ink, and I heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I then adhered the little heart in the middle of the speech bubble. I wanted the image to look like the mother dragon was saying “I Love You” to her little one.  Can you imagine a new mom receiving this card?   She can also display this in her nursery.

 

Here are the supplies that I have used. They are all from MFT Stamps.

The card above is my first entry.  I hope you like the card that I made and got inspired. Have a wonderful day!
