We have arrived at the weekend and a long one for some of us as well. We are hoping to go to a local garden, sometime at the weekend, to see the Spring flowers. On Monday we are visiting my parents to celebrate our birthdays that all come very close together. May is an expensive month.
Today a new challenge starts on the Alphabet Challenge blog the letter is E and the theme is Embossing Folders.
I was rather taken with the Beautiful Rose embossing folder and stamp set that came with issue 148 of Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine and this is what I used to make the main part of this card. I embossed the Beautiful Rose embossing folder on to white card and I cut an aperture in the card with a circle die. I cut a smaller circle in a darker pink card to fit inside the aperture. Behind the aperture I embossed some white care with the Bed of Roses embossing folder. All the embossing was inked to bring out the detail of the folders.
The Beautiful Rose was stamped onto watercolour card with black Archival ink. I used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens to colour the image and then I used my Brother ScanNcut to cut it out and leave a border.
The Happy Birthday sentiment came with the Beautiful Rose set and it was stamped onto a Pierced Flag.
This shows some of the detail of the embossing folders.
It certainly is a beautiful rose this will be another card for my box of cards. I did enjoy colouring the rose I think I will be using this stamp a lot.
Have a great weekend.
