Dream Catcher Greeting Card

Standard

Hello there friends! Ginny here with a nearly mixed media project. Why is it nearly? Well I didn’t get out all the jams and jellies and create my own background but I did add inks to already gorgeous patterned papers and some Prills for fabulous texture. Andd I altered the chipboard so I think that counts right? lol

The inspiration for this card was the starry patterned paper.  Of course I decided it looked like a whimsical night sky so I searched through my chippies and found a dream catcher. What luck!

Because the chippie is long and narrow…or short and wide depending on how you arrange it…I thought it lent itself to a 4 x 9 card. It really becomes a focal point as it takes up most of the center of the card.

The dream catcher is finished with a base coat of flat white acrylic paint then topped of with an embossing powder that’s mostly white but also has flecks of blue and gold. It makes it look like I did way more work to get a mottled finish.  Another fun stash find was the acrylic moon charms, they are large…but clear…so they don’t overwhelm that top corner. I finished it off with a pretty loopy bow and vintage button.

The florals coordinate perfectly and follow the curve of the chippie. Since I added moon charms I thought why not some stars as well? They are die cut from holographic cardstock for extra sparkle.  Once the arrangement was complete I adhered some Prills in random places to bring that texture that I love. I’ve also included it in the areas around the card that I had distress and squished up a bit. Last but not least is a few flat back pearly accents.
