My dear sister Margie recently had a birthday and this is the card I made for her. Margie adores pink and all things feminine so I wanted to make a card to match her preferences. Apothecary Art just seemed to fit the bill. The flower image is stamped with Memento Black Ink & colored with my Blendabilities. I just had to use them for Margie!
This set can be found as a bundle so no fussy cut! After I used the matching Apothecary Art Framelit to cut out the image I cut two more of the same size from Melon Mambo Cardstock to use as my backing pieces for the sentiment.
The image was stamped again with Melon Mambo Ink so that I could cut out the banner. The edges of the banner are curled with my bone folder and then the image is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Before attaching the main image, I embossed the Whisper White card base with the Spring Flowers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A piece of luscious Wild Wasabi striped paper from the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper adds a pop of color without being overbearing. A piece of Melon Mambo 1/4" Cotton Ribbon softens the edge between the dsp and the embossed image. A small piece is also tied onto a heart from the Basics Hodgepodge Clips (50% off now)
How could I resist some sweet Pearls for the flower centers and the bottom right of the card. I know that I am definitely going to miss the Apothecary Art stamp set & the Basics Hodgepodge Clips. Be sure to get yours before they are gone for good as they are on the Stampin' Up! Retiring List found by clicking here.
