Today I am showing you a card made for a June birthday, which gave me the perfect opportunity to use my new set of stamps from Altenew. I chose the smaller of the two rose sets, it has stamps for two different roses some leaves and a branch as well as several smaller flowers. I actually started this card by cutting the oval shape from a snippet of white card using a die from Spellbinders Elegant Ovals. I did this because I wanted to make sure the roses fitted into it properly. I used just one of the roses from the set and turning it slightly for the second one. I stamped the right hand one first using three different shades of ink and I'm sorry I can't remember exactly which ones. I then made a mask to cover it while I stamped the second rose and then masked that one as well and stamped in the leaves. I then placed it back in the die and brushed lightly in the background with Tumbled Glass DI. I matted this onto a snippet of mauve pearl card, die cut with a Li'l Inker stitched rectangle die. Another NBUS item. The base card is a white 15cm square and the front is covered with some pale blue patterned paper from my stash, cut to fit with the scallop blade in my cutter. This was inked around the edges with the Tumbled Glass ink before sticking it to the card. The little flowers are stamps from the same set as the rose and I stamped them with Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky DI and a yellow pad for the centers. The greeting is from Choclate Baroque and stamped with Stormy Sky ink. I fixed some narrow lace to the bottom of the stitched rectangle before sticking it to the card. The bow is made with pale blue seam binding, and the butterfly is die cut with Cheery Lynne dies, using a snippet of the backing paper for the open layer and another snippet of iridescent paper for the solid one. These were glued together and fixed to the card by just the body. I then added a little pink Stickles to the wings and two tiny pearls to the body.
