Framed Roses

Hi and welcome!  After a very busy weekend, I finally managed to get into my craft room to make a card that wasn't for upcoming DT work.  I saw a video by Therese Calvird showing how she created a stamped, framed, card and I just had to give it a go myself.  And I have to say, I love the results.

I took a panel of white cardstock the same size as a card front and stamped and masked the roses from Vintage Flowers.  Once I was finished, I die-cut the rectangle frame from the center of the card. The sentiment was silver embossed onto the center panel.

I then layered the three pieces onto a card base, adhering the center and outer panels directly to the card base and the frame using foam tape.  Simple, but effective.

I'm going to enter this card into the current Work It Wednesday floral challenge, Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes and the Share Joy CAS challenge.  I don't have any Taylored Expressions stamps, but I plan on rectifying that oversight soon :)

Thanks for visiting.
