Last night was our demo meeting and of course, we were swapping! This month we were focused on Valentine’s Day – so I made this card
Isn’t the flower wonderful? Ilina Crouse has a tutorial for this flower on her blog. The center of the flower is one of the new Pretty in Pink Sending Love Epoxy Brads. I love how it matches one of the papers from the Sweet Pea Paper Stack that’s in the flower. And look at the ribbon . . . . this is our new certainly celery satin ribbon and . . .it’s embossed! Crazy isn’t it! To emboss the ribbon, simply spray it with heavy starch and iron it, then run it through the big shot inside an embossing folder. Voila! You have embossed ribbon. I used an extra cardstock shim with mine to get a deeper impression. The saying ” Love you much” is embossed using white embossing powder and the stamp is part of our new set Well Scripted.
The main background of the card is Very Vanilla - I used Rose Red, but I rolled off prior to rolling the card stock to give a lighter look. I used the Very Vintage Wheel. Then I lightly sponged it with Certainly Celery ink. It’s layered on Certainly Celery( also rolled with Certainly Celery Ink) and Rose Red Cardstock.
Oh, and the leaves under the rose are certainly celery cardstock punched out from the new 2 step bird on a branch punch. They are the birds wings. I rolled these with the Very Vintage well as well because they seemed a little plain before.
Hope you enjoyed this one!
