MC Sept/15 - QF Checkerboard Card - ECD Hello - If You Need

Suzanne Cannon came out with a new jpg/svg file which will be available on the Silhouette onLine store soon and I was in a mood to make a card but didn't know what direction I wanted to go in so was procrastinating... this got me started BIG GRIN

I eCut the card using cream toned cardstock (card size 5.25"h x 3.37"w). I backed the openings with Sookwang tape and sprinkled with Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter in "copper" and then a bit of "Gold". Burnished well.

Stamped the flower branch (Penny Black "Garden Blooms") using Versfafine Black Onyx.

Adhered the hummingbird (Designs By Ryn "Hummingbirds 1" set). I had previously created an eCut file to cut all my hummingbirds, stamped it with the black and painted with Golden's QoR watercolors, then applied some Elizabeth Craft Designs silk fine glitter "Warm Diamonds" on the body area.

Colored a piece of white fun foam (see pic below) using Acrylic daubers in two shades of green and purple. Die cut and then shrunk with my heat gun. Adjhered to card using Best Ever Glue.

Added the Cloud 9 Designs "Rain Drops" in each corner and then added a copper toned pearl.

On the inside stamped the same flower branch and colored with Prisma colored pencils.

Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design "If You Need a Shoulder...) using the black and clear embossed.

I also added a piece of neutral toned scrapbook paper on the left side.
