I started this card this weekend! I love the colors and how it turned out! This card was created for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #33 (WSC33). Thanks Beate for another fantastic challenge! The saying on this card is not even stamped!! It is one of the new rub ons from Stampin' Up! This was the first time that I have used these rub ons. They are gorgeous!
All products are from Stampin' Up! except for the ribbon from Joann's and the cute flower eyelet from Family Treasures. The stamp set used is Boho Backgrounds. I also used the Polka Dots and Paisley set. I used whisper white, basic black, and real red card stock. To create the flowers in the center of the card I stamped the image with black stazon, then used my 1 1/4 circle punch. I then used my 1 3/8 circle punch for the real red circle and finally my scallop punch for the flower. I had fun creating the real red strip. I stamped the polka dots from the Polka Dots and Paisley set in VersaMark and then ran it through the crimper to give it some texture. That was then layered on to the black cs. To create the 3 flowers on the side of the card, I used one of the flowers (that matched the scallop flowers in the center) from the Boho Blossoms punch with a white brad in the middle. I stamped the swirly flowers with basic black on to whisper white cs. I paper pierced the black cs with my mat pack. Finally, I created the tag with whisper white and with a saying from the new Eastern Elegance rub ons! I used my corner rounder on the top two corners. Then I added a gorgeous red flower eyelet with my Crop-A-Dile and tied it all together with the black and white polka dot ribbon to complete the card!
I really like how it turned out!!! Thanks Beate for the challenge!!
