Thanks Partial Cut Wreath Card

The Honey Bee Mother's Day stamp I mainly purchased because I wanted some Mother's Day sentiments. However, it did come with a lovely floral wreath stamp, so I thought I would make a card with this.  

I hadn't totally planned it out when I started, so it kind of developed as I went along.  

I started by stamping two of the stamps out onto a piece of card with Momento Tuxedo black ink, as I knew I was going to colour them with Copics, and that is a copic friendly ink.

I then went ahead and coloured them in, I however missed colouring two parts of the stamp, one was the flower centres and their was something else I didn't fully colour, see if you can spot it in the photos.  I didn't realise I hadn't until I uploaded the photos to do the video and saw it haha, silly me!

After that I fussy cut around the stamps, then stamped the sentiment on a piece of card and cut it out with an oval die. 

It was at this point that I thought about doing a partial cut on some the the stamps so that I could get parts of the stamp to sit forward and other parts to sit behind the oval sentiment.  I quite liked the look.  I glued it all in to place.

At this point you could just stick it onto a card base and that would be the card finished, but I thought it looked a little plain, so I decided to do some ink blending over a stencil to just give a bit of interest on the card base.

I put some craft foam onto the back of my sentiment and wreath pieces and stuck that down onto the blended background.  

The final touch was some nuvo crystal drops dotted around and that was the card complete.  

I have a video of making the card.
