Good Morning! The star of today’s card is the All My Love DSP, along with the roses from the Cake Soiree stamp and die set. As a bonus, the font is so beautiful!
The layout for the card is inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #386. I was surprised and pleased at how the sharp angles of the sketch complement the soft floral themes in the DSP and rose die cuts.
Starting with the DSP with the roses and Crumb Cake background, I cut a rectangle. Then, I placed the large rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangles dies on an angle at the bottom. I was careful, not to overlap the top of the die with the top edge of the paper, because I didn’t want it to be cut. Then I ran it through my die cutting machine and got a lovely stitched edge on the bottom. I then adhered it to the Lovely Lipstick mat and carefully trimmed the angled bottom on my paper cutter.
I die cut the large rose from the Cake Soiree die cuts in Whisper White and Flirty Flamingo. I used one of the leftover pieces to trace the image on a piece of Whisper White. Then I colored it using the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. I colored the center with the dark marker. Then using the light marker, I blended the color outward and colored the rest. I then cut it out with paper snips and adhered it to the back of the white die cut with the fine tipped glue pen. I left the Flirty Flamingo die cut without a backing.
Then I stamped the solid rose using Flirty Flamingo on Whisper White. First, I inked up the stamp and stamped it off. Then, using an ink dauber, I added more ink to the center of the stamp. This gave me an image with a darker center. I used the matching die to cut it out. I was really pleased at how well these roses matched the DSP!
I die cut a stitched circle from Crumb Cake, and stamped the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick. I die cut a scalloped circle from Lovely Lipstick and mounted it to the back of the stitched circle. I die cut some of the open leaves using some old Pistachio Pudding scraps and attached them to the back of the solid rose with a glue dot. I then arranged the roses and and added pearl accents, popping the center rose with dimensionals. I adhered the circle to the card front using dimensionals.
The inside of the card is pretty simple, only being accented with a strip of the floral DSP and matted with Lovely Lipstick.
In using this stamp set, I felt that I should make a cake card because the cake is so beautiful. But the roses go well with the DSP and make a nice statement on their own. I will just have cake cards later! Thanks for stopping by!
