I love this card

so I want to share it with you. I made this card for the PC call but didn’t get picked up!
I did receive happy mail for three projects. Thank you so much PC magazine!
I love the background stamping. I am so happy with the result.

 Here are the supplies and instructions on how I made it:)

Cardstock: Vintage Cream and Pure Poppy from Papertrey Ink. Stamp Set: The Sweet Life, Delightful Dahlia and News Prints Stamp Sets from Papertrey Ink. Ink: Pretty Ink Pink, Tangerine Tango, Real Red, Sand Sahara, Certainly Celery and Olive Old from Stampin’ Up! Archival Jet Black Ink. Accessories: Orange  rhinestones from Kaisercrafts, Red Bakers Twine from Twinery, Cutterbee scissors.

  1. Make card base. 
  2. Trim 4 ¼’ x 5 ½’ cream cardstock panel.
  3.  Stamp second generation news print and three step stamping of the rose cluster.
  4.  Fill the gaps with leaves. 
  5. Stamp the rose using the three step stamping technique on a scrap piece of cream cardstock and fussy cut it.
  6.  Stamp the leaves using the two step stamping technique and fussy cut them too. 
  7.  Glue the flower and leaves as a cluster.
  8.  Stamp the sentiment on the strip of red cardstock. 
  9. Adhere it to the stamped panel. 
  10. Adhere a piece of red baker’s twine to the back of the rose cluster and mount it to the panel using foam squares. 
  11. Accent with the rhinestones. 
  12. Finally glue the panel to the card base.
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
