My Swap Entry
This is the card I did for the Spring Bloggers Swap Group 3. I decided to use the set I got a the Regional Seminar in Atlanta. This set will be available in the upcoming catalog. This layout is what I call my 11Valerie11 layout. I stared with my Sarah Designer Series Paper. I knew I wanted to use it so I drew my colors from it. I stamped my stems first. I double stamped the one on the left to get a taller stem. I had to tape off one of the leaves while I inked up the stem the second time. After inking, I removed the tape and stamped. Then I stamped the blooms. Once on the white panel and once on white scraps. After coloring everything in I cut out the blooms on the scrap and mounted them on top of the other blooms using brads. I then embossed the sentiment (which is hard to see in the photo) using blue embossing powder. I finished the card off with some ribbon and paper piercing along the top of the card.
