I had time to stamp for myself the other day which was so nice. I have been inspired by all the beautiful cards created with the Vintage Vogue set from the current Autumn/Winter mini. As yet I haven’t got that in my collection, so I played around with what I had. Here is the end result. WARNING: Anyone with an aversion to pink (*Lynda*) should look away now!!!
I stamped the leaf from “Fresh Cuts” in Pretty in Pink around the edge of Whisper White card and then sponged the edges. I did the same with a smaller piece of Whisper White. On this piece I stamped the words from Cottage Garden in Rose Red. I inked up the Sanded background in Pretty in Pink ink and kissed the solid flower from Cottage Garden set. This gave a different effect to the flower. I inked up the small flowers in Rose Red and cut the larger one out and adhered this to the centre of the flower. I raised up the flowers with mounting tape. With the ribbon I adhered sticky strip along a strip of white card and ruffled up the Rose Red grosgrain ribbon onto it. I added some glue dots on the outside to help hold it into place. I then adhered the strip onto the card. I did the ribbon separately as I was a bit worried about messing up the whole card if I got the ribbon stuck on wrong. You could stick it straight on if you were feeling brave!!
Here is a close-up of the flowers.
To finish off, the inside:
I hope you like my version!!
Happy Stamping! 🙂
