Spotlight on Thank You

Earlier today I shared

Sadly, the Southern Girls Challenge Blog has now closed.
The Design Team members, past and present have shared projects to say
farewell and thank you in The Final Encore.
These cards are my special Thank You to Lou and Trace, the blog co-owners.

This post is to focus on my card using the "Flower Bouquet 2" digital stamp
from the Floral Bouquet digital stamp set by Star Jam Lines.


I opened the "Flower Bouquet 2" digital stamp in Silhouette Studio and added a digital "Thank You" (details below).  I added a round "window" to cut in the middle of the image, printed on X-Press It blending card, heat set then cut the circle out with my Silhouette Cameo.  To make a matting layer for the floral circle, I added a 1/16" offset to the circle window shape and cut with my Silhouette Cameo I coloured around the edges and the outer 1/8" of the circle with a Memento Tuxedo Black Dual Tip marker so that the black matches the black printing of the image and sentiment.  I coloured the circle of the floral image with Copic markers, went around the edges with a Memento Tuxedo Black Dual Tip marker and adhered to the matting panel.  I made a card base and adhered the card front panel in place with liquid adhesive.  To finish off the card, I put liquid adhesive on the back of the matted spotlight panel and carefully aligned it with the image on the card front.
