One of my hubs dear friends is having surgery and
the hubs asked me to go to the store
and pick up a card.....
Sure, I'll go to my studio and purchase one.....LOL
I asked him "What do I do in my studio just about everyday?"
He replied, "I didn't want to be a bother you."
Bother, how can it be a bother when
I love doing it and any excuse to make
something is as good as any.....right???
Here's the card I came up with....
The stamp set is called Fabulous Florets from SU!
I stamped the the flower heads on yellow cardstock using versamark and then used black embossing powder....then fussy cut them out.
I stamped the leaf onto newsprint cardstock and embossed it with black as well.
I stamped the stem w/leaves with gray ink and did it twice more
without re-inking to get the subtle effect.
Layered it onto black cs and then all onto a kraft card base.
On the very vanilla piece I used the ticket corner punch.
I pop dotted the flower heads and leaf onto the front.
It's not too frou frou for a man is it????.......
I wanted it to look elegant without being too fussy.
Until later, petals.........Gotta split......TFL!!!!!
