Wow! It's been a long time since I sat down to make a card! I've been using cards from my stash.
I put this card together for my daughter. Today is her birthday. Happy birthday, Jenny!
My card base is 5 x 7" cream card stock. All patterned papers are by Melissa Frances including the rose sticker. I used a new Spellbinders die, Romantic Rectangles Two, to cut the lacey edge rectangles. The edges were inked with Distress Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. I also stamped faint script around the edges of the background paper. I stamped "you are so special" on a narrow strip of sticker to add to the rose piece. The embossed foil was cut and embossed with a new Spellbinders Gilded Life die, Petite Lace. Love the lacey look! The foil is gold. I sanded it lightly to reveal some of the silver color. Then I sponged Spa Blue paint over it and wiped off the paint on the embossed areas. My card actually started with this piece! It was an experimental piece that I really like so I found papers to go with it. The seam binding was misted and crinkles to look old and tied into a loose bow. I've tucked a small stick pin with a bead into the bow.
