Find Joy Every Day Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps! Ginny here to share a greeting card with a lovely sentiment. Finding joy every day would be a great life motto. There certainly is enough to be thankful for!!!

Find Joy Greeting Card

 I selected several great Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts chippies and gave them a base coat of white acrylic paint then played with the pieces until I had them just where I wanted them. Once I knew where they were the most happy I finished altering and layering them with the patterned papers.

 This paper seemed to be fairly feminine with a nice range of brighter and darker shades so I took advantage of that and did the same for the chippies.

The sentiment in the center is a coordinating sticker and just the perfect size to fit into this frame.

The birdhouse was finished simply with a light coat of metallic silver paint then a layer of velum added to the back to conceal the layers underneath it. The Hinge Strap chippie got multiple coats of Liquid Pearls in two shades and smooshed down with a cosmetic applicator being careful not to fully blend the colors. Smooshing instead of brushing helps to add a texture similar to hammered metal.

The Wrought Iron Chippie looks a bit like delicate lace to me and finished with a Pitt Big Brush marker in black preserves the intricate details and doesn’t gunk up the corners like paint might.

This Scribble Frame Birds stayed white….then was brushed with Coral Pearlescents and topped with Sugar Glitter Paste. It’s pale and dreamy and the perfect base for some dimensional flowers.
