Here's the sketch:
I started with a standard white A2 size card base, that I layered with Poppy cardstock. The patterned paper is from Close To My Heart's La Vie En Rose collection. I added a strip of Poppy cardstock that I embossed with a quatrefoil pattern to mimic the patterned paper. After playing around with the piece for a bit, I decided I actually like the debossed (back) side of the cardstock, so I glued it to the card facedown. The roses, leaves and sentiment are from the January Stamp Of The Month: Beloved Bouquet. The leaves are stamped in Fern and the roses in Poppy inks. The background for each element is a second generation impression. I then stamped the detail layer at full strength. (I love two step stamp sets. They are super versatile!) The sentiment is stamped in Black Archival ink. I fussy cut the images and popped them up with dimensional adhesive. I then added Black & Gold ribbon for a final touch.
Here are some close ups:
I hope you enjoyed this bit of Midweek Mojo. Tune in on Friday for a Kraft-y Hearts Blog Share featuring another look at the La Vie En Rose collection.
Have a wonderfully creative day!
