Good Morning Stampers!
Today's card is for someone very special in my life. Her birthday is in May but I won't give her name here because she is a subscriber to my blog. She may think it's for her but she won't know for sure because I have five birthdays in May that I have to make cards for and they all fit into the category of "special". I have two close girlfriends, one daughter, one granddaughter, one sister and one "new" friend. So I'll let them all keep guessing!
I used the stencil from Folk Flowers from the Occasions Mini. I sponged the colors, Regal Rose and Champaign Mist (shimmer paint) onto Very Vanilla card stock with a sponge dauber. You can't see the shimmer in the photo but it really is quite lovely.
I then added pearls (non SU) to different parts of the flower. I almost forgot! I ran the Very Vanilla card stock after it dried through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dot Textured Embossing Folder to give it a "springy" look. Speaking of polka dots – I was at Christopher and Banks the other day and tried on a polka dot blouse. It was so pretty and spring like but I thought, "it may look good for spring but not for this body!" I guess I'm pass the age where polka dots look good on me.
The ribbon is Ivory Organza (SU retired) and is one of my favorite ribbons. I don't know what I will do when I finally run out of this ribbon because it's one of my favorites and I love to use it on very feminine type cards. It's not obvious in the photo, but I put the heat gun to the bow until it started to crinkle up. Very pretty look.
The sentiment (from Vintage Labels in the Sale-a-bration Mini Catalog) was stamped with Regal Rose Classic Ink and punched out with the small oval punch. The 2nd layer is also from Vintage Labels - it was stamped with Regal Rose Classic INk and punched out with the Scallop Circle Punch. The bottom layer is Regal Rose card stock and was punched out with the 1 3/4" circle punch.
Well, that's it for today – thanks so much for stopping by.
