And not a "cute" image in sight lol. When I saw this week's Mojo Monday sketch I knew exactly what I was going to do, especially after seeing Chris's amazing card that she made with her new digi-stamps. Now when I started this card Chris did not have her digi stamps uploaded for sale, and me being the impatient madam I am, I dug out one of my very dusty and sadly neglected rose stamps. I forgot just how much I love this style of card and stamping - I can't remember when last I did a card like this. Watch this space cos I'm definitely going to be using more of my floral stamps, as well as some of Chris's new floral digi stamps. If you haven't seen them yet pop over and take a peek. They are fantastic.
Okay back to the card. I had to go for a large card as the image is huge. The size of the stamp is 5 1/2 x 3 3/4" and there was no way it was going to fit on a square card. I used these gorgeous K & Co papers that I got for Christmas from my fab mate Karen. I used only one of the Nesties as matting two sizes would have overwhelmed the card, so I just trimmed the image and rounded the corners and I think it fits quite nicely on the nestie shape.
For the inside I stamped the image again and cropped it down with a round nestie. Another MS punch got an airing this time, and I've stamped scrolls with Versamagic Red Brick ink.
Co-Motion Rose coloured with distress inks and H2O's. The sentiment on the front is from Whiff of Joy. The swirl stamp is from a HOTP clear set.
The papers are K & Co
The doily is from the Ribbon Box
Organza ribbon from QVC (got a set of loads of reels yonks ago - the best buy I ever made from QVC)
The corner scroll is a Cuttlebug die from the Vintage set
Label punch is from Stampin Up
Pearls are Papermania
