This card uses the Friends Never Fade stamp set from Stampin’ Up! For the paper, I used Pink Flamingo DSP, Tempting Turquoise CS, Pumpkin Pie CS and Rich Razzleberry CS. For the background paper, I brayered a Texturz Plate with Tempting Turquoise and then ran it through my Sizzix machine with a piece of Tempting Turquoise cardstock. I really like the effect. The ribbon is Rich Razzleberry 5/8” Grosgrain Ribbon and Pumpkin Pie ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon. I layered the ribbon for a unique effect.
For the sentiment, I embossed the image with white embossing powder. I also mounted it on a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock that I had embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder from Sizzix/Stampin’ Up! I made the flower with Daisy #2 die from Sizzix/Stampin’ Up!, and in the center I used a Tempting Turquoise button. Rather than just using cardstock to make the flower, I used watercolor paper. I then colored each flower using an Aqua Painter, Pumpkin Pie reinker and Rich Razzleberry reinker. I’m really happy with how the flower turned out. I think it has a lot of character and dimension.
