This is my card for cc345. Karen is our hostess and she chose a great color combo. This week it’s regal rose, blushing bride and lucky limeade. I skipped dessert because I couldn’t get gold embossing to work with my card idea.
I decided to go with a collage because this is also for the “hope you can cling to” challenge hosted by Patty B. She wanted us to make a collage.
I have never made a collage card before so this was a first for me.
I used the Stampin-Up set garden collage. Stamped it in versamark ink then embossed with white ep. I sponged the bg with blushing bride, regal rose and lucky limeade.
I used blushing bride dsp-“text pattern” and stamped leaf images from the Verve set-“great friends” in lucky limeade.
My flower is also from the same Verve set-stamped in regal rose on regal rose cardstock and dsp. I added some glossy accents to the flower center. I stamped the leaf in versamark and embossed it in lucky limeade then cut it out.
I used white mesh ribbon from May Arts and regal rose grosgrain ribbon from Stampin-Up. Punched a couple of butterflies to complete my card.
