This weeks Card of the Week was created combining two of my favorite stamp sets: Style Beautiful and Greenhouse Garden. And the technique used on the flower I found in the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog on page 101. I've been drooling over that page for some time now and finally had an idea breakthrough. I love having that gorgeous Idea Book and Catalog as a reference for inspiration, don't you?
Card base is standard 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Not Quite Navy folded in half.
1st layer is 4 x 5 1/4 Very Vanilla, with the small medallion from Style Beautiful stamp set in Riding Hood Red Classic Ink. To this layer I also tied the Very Vanilla satin ribbon just above the line of stamped medallions.
Next layer is 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 Not Quite Navy.
On top of that is a layer of 3 5/8 x 3 5/8 Very Vanilla stamped with the sentiment and the largest medallion from Style Beautiful in Not Quite Navy Ink.
The flower was stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock. The 2 flower stamps were inked up with Riding Hood Red classic ink only on the edges with a sponge dauber. The top detail layer of the two step flower stamps were inked with Soft Suede and stamped on top of the Riding Hood Red layer. Then the flowers were cut out and layered on top of each other. The flower was finished with a decorative brad from the new Antique Brads, another one of our great new accessories. The layered flowers were set on top of the large medallion with stampin dimensionals.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
