Here’s a simple, but elegant, card we’ll be making next week. I got the idea from Ronda Wade, then tweaked it a little with some ideas from my friend Christine Giuda’s card (here).
I stamped the poinsettia image from Joyful Christmas two times on Vellum card stock with Gold Encore Metallic ink, then embossed with gold powder. I colored one with a Cherry Cobbler marker, then the other with Blushing Bride. I cut them out, and layered the center of the Blushing Bride flower on top of the Cherry Cobbler flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Easy! A little Dazzling Details for the center, a Garden Green sentiment and you’re ready to layer it to the card.
Didn’t you love Rachel’s tutorial yesterday? When I saw her blog post, I had to reblog it. She did such a wonderful job of explaining the flowers. Honestly, I tried to make them several times a year or so ago, and they just looked horrible. Rachel’s tutorial made it so easy. Tomorrow I’ll be posting another card that I liked – but there was just something a little off. So when she stopped by today, I asked for advice. She told me exactly what I was thinking (yay!!), but I wanted to be sure I was on the right track before I started cutting.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy – and have a wonderful day!
