A Rose In Winter


Hello again, hope you're having a great weekend! I'm popping in to wish my husband's oldest brother and his wife a Happy Anniversary! Happy Anniversary, Paul and Chia!!! And yes, you've seen this patterned paper a couple times now already!!! Can you tell how much I love it!

Today's card base is paper pierced Angel cardstock. Next I punched the corners of a piece of Kaiser Plush Empress Sophisticated patterned paper (try saying that 10 times real fast!) and layered it on to a slightly larger piece of Gypsy Rose cardstock. In each corner I placed a Pewter Kaiser Pearl then I wrapped dotted organdy ribbon around it before attaching to the Angel card base.

The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on paper pierced Whisper White cardstock using the Hero Arts Special Moments cling mount stamp and was colored in using Tombow and Stampin Write Markers. This was then layered on to a slightly larger piece of Gypsy Rose cardstock. Using a 2-Way Glue Pen I added some (OK, a lot) of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. The image was attached to the card base using Scotch Foam Mounting tape to raise it up a bit and give the card some depth. To finish off the card I added a bow at the base of the flower stem.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
