I am making some cards for my mom to give and I figured I might as well play some sketches at the same time! This one is for Sketch Challenge #19 by Waltzing Mouse.
I had so much fun making this card. I started by making the flower using my new Heartfelt Creations 5 petal flower dies and Bittersweet paper. I embossed each petal from the back of the paper with a traditional embossing tool. Then I embossed the middle of each flower from the front to cup the petals upward. Next I scrunched them so they wouldn’t look so perfect and inked the edges with Antique Linen distress ink. Then I punched holes in the middle of all the petals and threaded the stamens through the middle. After adhering it to the card, I added slivers of foam dimensionals under the larger petals to get more dimension.
I made the leaves by folding green ombre ribbon into leaf shapes holding them in place with Scor-Tape. The large flourish is embossed with pale pink powder. To make it pop, I darkened the pattern in the background DP with medium brown ink. I sure hope the Waltzing Mouse Design Team likes my card!
Here is the tag I created to go with it. I had intended to make this card using the last sketch I did and had set up the Just Rite Stamps so even though they didn’t work with this sketch and the flower I made, I decided to still use it by making this tag.
