I attached the bud stamp to the stemmed rose as I was stamping. I thought this would make it look better. I used versamark and gold detail embossing powder.
I used my Prismacolored markers and pencils to color in the flower. I used an Inkadinkado white gel pen for highlights. I colored first with markers and them added depth with the pencils. I used the Love Always stamps from the set as the sentiment and gold embossed them as well.
I used a picture matt I had in to trace the shape of the main panel. I used Whisper White and Kraft paper for this card. For the other two layers of the center panels, I simply cut around the panel leaving a bit showing. I used a gold gel pen to highlight each panel. I used Martha Stewart`s Lace punch on the right side of the final white layer. The base of the card is Kraft.As you can see in the above photo the inside panel also has a scalloped edge that extends beyond the front edge. I also used two ribbon which I tape together to create the bow.
For the inside of the card, I made a copy of the photo mat using whisper white. I used frayed burlap and milled lavender distress inks on both the whisper white and the pink insert. I left the insert blank for a handwritten note of love. Guess that is all for today. DH comes back from Toronto today so I guess I had better clean the house a bit. I am just like the kids, when Dad is away suppers are in front of the TV and housework is definitely not high on the list of doing.
