A Rose for You

Here's the product of my weekend stamping time. This is another one of my multi-layer, multi-panel cards. I love the colors and print in this Stampin' Up! Bella Rose DSP. Continuing with my Valentine's Day theme, I thought the Bella Rose DSP was quite romantic. This card could be used as a Valentine or simply to convey love and affection since it doesn't say Valentine anywhere on the card.

The card is built on a shell of Whisper White plus base layers of Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss. The Kiwi Kiss cardstock was clear embossed with the same rose stamp I used for the main image to give the base layers a bit of texture. For the main image, I stamped it, then masked it and sponged with Creamy Caramel and Chocolate Chip for a bit of depth (since I don't have an airbrush system). The charm is a Fragment by Tim Holtz. I stamped the rose again in Riding Hood Red, stamped off first and then stamped again for a lighter image. Then I stamped the 'Love" stamp from Verve Visuals Mixed Messages, punched it with a Creative Memories circle punch and affixed it to the back of the Fragment with Crystal Effects. The paper flower was made with Riding Hood Red card stock and several different sized flower punches. I dampened the paper after punching to shape it the way I wanted it to look. After I threaded the ribbon through the punched holes and had already glued it down, I decided I would have liked it better had I threaded it in a criss-cross pattern.

Both panels on the inside of the card were also finished off with multiple layers and machine stitching.
