Roses for OWH


Hi everyone! Today I've a clean and simple card to share. I'm actually working on making several of this card to send Operation Write Home. The beautiful rose image is a rubber stamp I picked up at a local rubber stamp expo last year.


My card base is Purely Pomegranate layered with White Cardstock then Old Olive Cardstock and a 1 3/4 strip of patterned paper. Next I wrapped metallic gold ribbon around the card base. The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!


CREATIVE DESIGN:
  • Stamps: Roses (Designs Unlimited)
  • Paper: Purely Pomegranate and Old Olive (Stampin' Up), White Cardstock (Papertrey Ink), Patterned Paper (Colors by Design)
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics RV11, RV17, RV19, YG93, YG95, YG97
  • Other: Metallic Gold Ribbon, Mounting Tape
