Vintage Framed Roses in Paris

Hi Friends!

Today I am sharing this card on the Artistic Outpost blog and wanted to share it here with you as well :-)   

For this quick Mixed Media card, I chose to highlight a portion of the Roses in Paris background stamp and paired it with ODBD Custom Dies- Ovals Dies and Ornate Ovals as well as the Ephemera Essentials 6x6 Paper Pad (all are available from Our Daily Bread Designs). 

To create this card:

1). On a piece of the kraft Ephemera Essentials 6x6 Paper, stencil brushed corduroy distress ink using a flourish stencil and stencil brush, trim the panel, mount onto a piece of black cardstock and lightly distress the edges with a distressing tool.

2). Add the strip of 1” black satin ribbon and mount the pleated red ribbon over the black ribbon (wrapping the edges behind the panel).

3). Mount the entire panel onto the white card base.

4). Die cut and emboss a piece of black cardstock using the Ornate Ovals Dies and set aside.

5). Ink the Roses in Paris background stamp with archival black ink onto white cardstock, heat set with a heat tool and water color using watercolor pencils, water soluble graphit pencils and water based markers.  Die cut and emboss with the Ovals Dies and adhere to the center of the Ornate Ovals die cut created in step 4.

6). Add the layered focal image frame to the card front with dimensional foam, apply a clear glitter pen to the rose petals to add shimmer and pearls to the corners to finish off the card.

This card was quick to create and I think would work well for a variety of occasions, don't you? You could send it as is or add a sentiment at a later date but I love the versatility of the Roses in Paris background stamp!

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by and visit- hugs and I hope you have a great weekend!
