Good morning! I am back already with another card. Having so much fun following the Allsorts challenges and this week I decided to play along again. The theme this week is "pink", so I created a pretty pink floral card.
I recently discovered PSX stamps, especially love their detailed floral stamps and although these stamps are really old and no longer being made, I think they make the prettiest cards. And I love that they are wood mounted!!! This is another one of those old stamps. I heat embossed the image on xpress it blending card, then colored with copic markers and a colored pencil for a little more shading. An old Stampin Up background stamp was then used on the image panel and edges were inked using distress ink. I thought distressed edges would look nice with this vintage looking image, so I distressed all edges and used my sewing machine around the image panel. Some pretty corner die cuts (Whimsy Stamps die) were added to each one of the 4 corners. A little clear button and twine finishes off the card.
This is the inside. I heat embossed the sentiment (old - by Stampin Up) and used the same flower stamp but only the top portion of the stamp. The dark card stock looks black, but it's actually dark brown.
This card has also been listed in my Etsy shop if you're interested.
Playing along again in these challenges:
