Rose for You

Morning all. I just finished this card to enter in Crafty Individuals April challenge- Time for Summer. Initially, I envisioned the card as a vase with a rose in it. After adding the Crafty Individual stamp image, it kind of looked like the lady's dress. I will give this card to my mom for Mother's Day on May 13.

The card measures 8 1/5" x 5" when folded flat. I dry embossed the heart shaped die-cut lightly. I stamped and heat embossed the roses with white embossing powder on vellum and colored the image with markers. I then fussy cut out the rose images and layer them together. When the card is folded into <> shape, the rose pops into 3D. I also heat embossed the background with some French script.
The lady with a bird stamp is from Crafty Individuals.

Hope you enjoy this visit and thanks very much for stopping by.


I will enter this card in the following challenges:
