Friend birthday

cardz4galz Challenge #195

Welcome to our new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz and we hope you have fun with the spring flower theme. Although roses are probably not a flower one would choose as a spring flower I have 2 in my garden that flower very early and one has a wonderful scent.

The stamps are from 2 sets, one is a Penny Black floral set and the other is an MFT sentiment set. I also used a swirls debossing die from Altenew and a stitched frame die from Paper Rose. Using Versamark I stamped the images and then heat embossed them in gold. Then I used some Distress inks as watercolour and added colour to them. I did 2 layers for each to add strength and fussy cut them before gluing together. Using a rose gold shimmer stix dauber I went over the background piece as I felt it was quite stark but didn’t want to add colour. I also added some shimmer to the roses.

It is a simple card but I think quite effective visually. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it.

  1. Beautiful! I like the eye catching details. The swirly background is perfect for the framed roses. I may have to CASE your card when I have the time.

    1. Many thanks. I was a bit worried about the shimmer on the background at first but once it was fully dry I liked it myself.


    1. My original intention was for something quite different but somehow this evolved and I liked the result.


  2. Sometimes I forget how to use a frame creatively. My mind sees things very literally at times and I get stuck for an idea, but this one turned out to be a creative way to do a card.
