I'm on a roll. And it's all about a rose. And a set of cards for my neighbor for her birthday.
I used sketch #13 from Retro Sketches for my first card. Love this sketch and some great DT work with it too. You should have a look.
And although I decided to make all the cards different, I opted to go with one image from my new The Craft's Meow, Beautiful Spring. Let me tell you, I LOVE IT. Here's #1.
Heat embossed the rose on Neenah CS. Inked it up with Adirondack and Distress Inks - a la the rose "Gloria Dei". Cut it out. Stamped the leaf onto green scrap , cut out and toned it down by applying a bit of Distress Peeled Paint. Cut a piece of white CS and rounded the top using partial die cutting with a circle die. Punched a hole for the tag. Dry embossed with woodgrain folder. Added ribbon scrap. Adhered a strip of digital PP to card base. Stamped sentiment and adhered tag with dimensional adhesive. Did I mention I love it?!?!
It's Anything Goes over at Simon Says Stamp. I'm comin'.
Happy blooming roses to you.
