I started by cutting out a white piece of cardstock, using the top note die. I then stamped the tulips using pretty in pink, then did the overstamp in regal rose. The stems and leaves were stammped in old olive and accented with always artichoke. I was up for a challenge, so I finished the card by doing the brick wall technique found at SCS here. Anyone who's tried this technique, knows what I mean by a challenge. There's lots of little pieces to keep track of and put in the correct order. When I got all the pieces glued down into place, I embossed the entire layer with the dotted swiss folder. I love all the texture. A ribbon, bow and a hodge podge hardware piece (I know, I'm dipping into my precious, hoarded hardware again!) completed the look I wanted. Of course, you need a pretty envelope to go along with it too. I always stamp a coordinating envie. Even though this card was a lot of work, I think it was worth it in the end. The card is not the typical A2 size, it's actually an A7 size (completed card measures 5 x 7). Thanks for stopping by today.
