Thank you rose

Hi all,

I'm back with another post.  Although this card looks as though it is black and white, it is actually black and cream which I think look good together.

I made this card way back in 2007 for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Craft's and used their beautiful shadow rose stamp, there was a large and a small image, this card is made using the large image.  I think this is a stunning stamp  but I'm not sure if it is still available.  

The base card was made from cream cardstock in a landscape style.   Onto this I matted some black card, cut slightly smaller than the cream.   I cut out two  circles  2" in diameter and glued these to the right-hand side of the card.   I then punched out two 1" black circles and glued one to the bottom cream circle and the other on the edge of the bottom circle.   I punched our two leaves from black card and glued them to the top circle.  I then did the same for the bottom circle but used cream card.

I glued a narrow strip of cream card down the right-hand side  and matted a narrower piece of black card on top of the cream

I then cut out a another cream circle and stamped the 'thank you' stamp onto it using a black inkpad.  I'm sorry I cannot remember the make of that stamp as it has been in my craft stash for some years now lol !   I matted this circle onto a slightly larger circle of gold card and put a gold brad through the centre and glued this to the long strip on the right of the card.

The shadow rose was stamped onto some black card and heat embossed using a cream embossing powder.   It was then matted onto some gold card and glued to the left-hand side of the card.

Well that is it my friends hope you like it.   If you ever have any questions about any of my creations, please feel free to ask and I will endeavor to answer your query.

Take care of yourselves until the next time and happy crafting lolls.
