Amanita Card

Hi everyone :-D

I want to share with you a mini card I made today for my friend. It´s this Amanita Card

To make this card, I was inspired with an Amanita Box I made and shared here on my blog recently. That little box is a gift for my friend. I thought that a similar card will be perfect with it.

How I made this card
I cut out a card base from a brown textured paper. Card dimensions are 76 mm x 101 mm (3" x 4").
I cut out a panel from red/white polka dot paper and distressed edges with Tim Holtz´s Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy. 
I stamped mushrooms from  Paper Smooches 'Forest Whimsy' stamp set on Kraft paper bag, colored them with colored pencils and universal white pencil, fussy cut them and colored edges with black permanent pen. 
I also punched out 4 1" scalloped circles from Kraft paper bag. 
I decorated corners of the panel with scalloped circles and bottom center with mushrooms (Amanitas). I did this in découpage technique, using fine brush and découpage glue and varnish. 
After the panel was dry, I glued it to the card base and added thick coat of transparent varnish on mushrooms´s dots to pop them up and to create glossy accents
I also glued a stripe of textured paper, punched with  MSC Edger Punch, Scallop Dot.
