Good day, crafty friends! This week our challenge at 613 Avenue Create has the option to Use a Rose. It's Spring, and flowers are everywhere (so are allergies)! Our sponsors are The Stamping Boutique, Melonheadz Illustrating and Eureka Stamps. I've used Eureka Stamps sentiment image Bouquet of Angels.
I needed a card for a friend who is undergoing a serious health issue. I thought the sentiment was perfect. This is a really simple card - no stamping at all. I didn't start out to create a no stamping card, but it ended up that way. Here it is:
I cut the rose from patterned paper that I had. I actually have very few flowers in my collection of stamps, and only one (I think) is a rose and it wasn't exactly what I wanted. So I grabbed the paper and fussy cut the rose - therefore, no stamping. I used a Spellbinder oval die for the sentiment, dusted it with pink chalk, and distressed the edge with pink ink. The decorative oval is cut with an Spellbinders Floral Oval die. I added some rhinestones and done!
