Today's card was created using the Natural Beauty stamp set from Stampin' Up which is actually the stamp set I used on the very first few cards I blogged. How is that for coming full circle! My card base Perfect Plum layered with a slightly smaller piece of Flourishes Classic White then Pale Plum cardstock. I embossed the Pale Plum cardstock using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder and distressed the edges for a softer look. The two banner strips are Kraft cardstock.
The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Flourishes Classic White Cardstock using the Natural Beauty stamp set and colored in using copic markers. For the leaves I used G94, G99 and V93, V95 and V99 on the flowers. I paper pierced around the edge of the image then layered it on to a slightly larger piece of Perfect Plum cardstock before attaching to the card base with mounting tape. To embellish the card I made two flowers by punching flowers from Perfect Plum cardstock and finished each of them with a button threaded with DMC White.
Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
