Bunch of Roses Card
Here we are with another flowery card. Again, I hope it is something a bit different that you will like.
A green A4 sheet was folded in 2 to make an A5 base card. A piece of glossy A5 white card was trimmed back a bit to show the green border of the base card. This was then masked off and green distress ink was added round the border using a piece of Cut'n'Dry foam. When this was dry it was over stamped with a small bunch of roses from U-Mount stamps using black Stazon ink.
The main image, the larger bunch of roses from the same stamp set, was stamped with black Stazon and embossed with clear powder. This was coloured in with Cosmic Shimmer mica powders mixed with water and green ink from a Big'n'Juicy pad. When dry, a frame Shapability was used to cut out the centre section and the frame. Note, some of the image is included on the frame so this was an aid to lining it all back up again later when the card was assembled.
For the centre section, the edges were coloured with two tones of green Distress ink so that there was no white card left showing. The frame was also coloured with the ink so as to achieve a good contrast between the frame and the white of the backing card.
The centre was placed back into the hole in the frame to ensure good positioning on the page. The centre was bonded in place with double sided tape. The frame was then lifted away and mounted onto the card with foam pads to give some depth to the card.
