Floral Shutter Birthday card

Good Morning everyone.

Today im sharing a shutter card  i made for a friends 70th birthday.  I went with purple as the main colour as i know she loves purple and lots of flowers. 

A4 Shutter card, made from white card and tattered lace shutter die set.  I first die cut lots of flowers from a sheet of kraft card covered with purple foiled swirls & purple mirri card. I then shaped and glued the flower layers together to build up lots of dimension.  I also die cut lots of foliage from green inked card.

From white card i cut panels to fit the card front and dry embossed them, well actually debossed as i liked the look of it, i added a touch of green pen and then green glitter to the debossed flower centres.  I went with green as a contrast to all the purple.  I inked around the edges with purple distress ink and attached to the card front. 

I computer printed my sentiment in purple and black and die cut into an oval, inked the edges with purple ink and lots of purple glitter dots around the edge - i know she LOVES her glitter.  I then arranged my flowers and foliage.  Gold gems to finish my flowers. 

Showing it from a slightly different angle

This shows the purple foiled kraft card better and the true colour.

Just showing the card from above when its stood up on display. 

and as many of you know i also like to add detail to the back of my cards.  Here i used a pale purple paper so could easily write my greeting on it and 3 purple cats as she also loves her cats and this is my 3 furry gals - Tilly leader of the gang, Jess following the leader and little Suki being naughty😀
