Art Deco Style Gone Green!!

Hi There

Hope this post finds you all well.  I would like to share this card that I have made for my friends Birthday.  I know most Art Deco Cards are usually Black and White or Black and Red but her favourite colour is Green so I have stepped away a tad from the Norm!  I have always loved the Art Deco Images you can buy as ready made toppers but find a lack of Digi Stamps for this era!!  This one is from Art By Miran and is called Brittany 1920's Flapper.  (She does a couple of different ones)  I have coloured her using Promarkers.  To make the Art Deco Fan shape I drew three triangles onto Green Glitter Card starting with one that fit in an 8" square and then made the next two an inch thinner  I then repeated this process onto the Green Polka Dot Card but made them 10mm smaller to allow for layering and then put them all on top of each other and cut the bottom off! I then cut another triangle and put this the other way up to look like the bit that you hold onto!  I mounted the whole thing onto a 4" Card Blank but as suspected it could not hold the weight and fell over hence the card stand lol!  It is my understanding that Art Deco Cards are usually quite plain so I added a Bow, some Square Green Gems and a Green Marabou Feather.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is Hand Stamped and mounted onto the Green Glitter Card!
