My friend Jayne celebrated a special birthday yesterday and put on a lavish spread for her friends and family. I made her a special card and hope that she enjoyed her party.
So the card was a little larger than usual ~ I had a lot to say inside! Fifth Avenue Floral is a big favourite of mine and it is due to be retired at the end of this Ideas Book & Catalogue. I stamped the roses on Whisper White card stock in Versamark and heat embossed using white embossing powder. I then wet the whole image and placed a few drops of Cherry Cobbler re-inker in the centre and let it bleed with the moisture to over the whole flower. I love this effect.
Also wanted to mention the beautiful ribbon idea which is a combination of Victorian Lace, Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and Very Vanilla Grosgrain ribbon - the amazing Teresa Dabrowski prompted us to use our ribbon off cuts like this in one of her workshop wows in Canberra.
