It's Teapot Tuesday time again, and this week's recipient has been dealing with some serious medical issues lately and could use a little happy mail. She is an artist who paints a lot of trees and landscapes, and she loves tulips and roses. I had some gorgeous rose paper in my stash, so I knew right away that I would feature this paper on my project.
I started with a black card stock base. I cut a panel of patterned paper slightly smaller than the card front (about 1/8" smaller on all sides) and attached it to the base. I stamped my sentiment on vellum and heat set it with clear embossing powder, then die cut it. Because it was difficult to see the sentiment against the patterned paper, I also die cut a piece of black card stock in the same size to layer behind it. I attached the vellum to the card stock with tiny black brads. I wrapped black fiber around the card base and added my sentiment over the fibers using dimensional foam tape. Not much stamping on this card, but I love how the paper really steals the show!

Amy, this is so pretty!!! I am so glad you explained that your sentiment panel, I thought it might be some kind of metal at first because it looks a little silvery in the photo. Your background paper is gorgeous!!! Fantastic card for Denise!!!
