A Rose Is a Rose
Happy Hump Day Peeps!!!
The card I am sharing today is not made with any sketch or challenge at all........gasp, I know, but I had borrowed this set from a friend and wanted to use it so I would know if I wanted to get it myself, well I DO NEED it and I DO WANT it.......LOL!!!
I do have to tell you tho, if you don't like to use the stamp a ma jig, this set might not be for you. Also, on this card anyway, I did alot of cutting. The base of the card is chocolate chip and that is followed by some whisper white. The regal rose DS paper is from a retired hostess print pack.
I cut a top note die with whisper white to mount the flowers on. I used pretty in pink and regal rose ink for the roses. The leaves are stamped with old olive and always artichoke ink. I stamped the sentiment, from the sale-a-bration "Whimsical Words" stamp set, with regal rose ink. This would be a great "mailable" card because I didn't add any bling or ribbon, I don't think it needed it, those flowers are amazing all by themselves. I also finished the inside of the card, I usually do, with some white card stock and DS paper that matches, nothing to interesting but I thought I would show you this one:
I left it blank to add a sentiment later or a personal message depending on how I decide to use it.
I think the roses are very "vintage" looking.....don't you?
Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
