Finally, after several false starts (and stops) I decided to call it a day (or three) and just went ahead and took the photos for my blog. Here it is! I'm not thrilled by it, but hey, I've made worse! ;-)
The idea was to make a love card that would work all year round (talk about getting your money's worth!). This would work for Valentine's Day, Anniversary or as a make-up card after an argument about leaving used socks under the bed!
|The papers are from MME's "Pretty Please" pack. The stamped image and sentiments are from Papermania's "Anniversary" set. I stitched the panels because ..... it's what I do! ;-)|
|I die cut the pink CS with Spellbinders Fleur-de-Lis Rectangles, inked the edges with TH's Tattered Rose distress ink and applied Liquid Pearls around the border. I also inked the stamped image with Tattered Rose after fussy cutting it.|
|I stuck a pale pink mulberry paper rose on the side, applied some clear rhinestones and smeared some Crystal Stickles to create a misty effect. I used a mini glue dot to adhere the blue organdy ribbon to the stalk.|
|Foam squares give dimension to the focal image.|
|Kept the inside fairly simple with some stitching around the white panel.|
Thanks for visiting. Hope to see you again at my next post!
