D2B Artzy & Gelli Arts Hop

Hello crafty friends,
Today's project is for the Dare 2 Be Artzy and Gelli Arts Products Hop. Here is the project I created for the blog hop. 

My project is an A2, top folding card. I started with a white cardstock base.

I used the Gelli Arts 5x7 Gelli plate to create both of my backgrounds. I used a combination of inks and Totally Tracy Texture Stamps from D2BA. 

I layered them on to my card base.

I added a bow.

I used the Totally Tracy Find Your Purpose Stamp Set for the beautiful flower. I stamped it out twice using the D2BA Sunset Yellow Ink pad and then colored it in. I layered them one on top of the other and added some foam tape between them for a little dimension. I added some Glitter to the center.

I used the Wild Orchid Ink  to stamp the sentiment.

Be sure to head over to both the Dare 2 Be Artzy and Gelli Arts blogs and check out what the rest of the designers created. PLUS you have a chance to win some great prizes!
