Easter Blossoms

You know when you have a thought in your head that you think will work…but it doesn't come out how you imagined it?  That's what happened with this card!  Although it wasn't what I originally had in mind, I liked how it turned out.




On this card, I started by stamping the cherry blossom branch from Easter Blossoms with Early Espresso Classic Ink on Springtime Vintage Designer Paper.  Then I used a White Gel Pen to color in the blossoms…it is a very cool look!  I distressed the edges with the Distressing Tool, curled the corners and then layered it on Early Espresso cardstock.  I distressed the edges of it, too!


I ran the Soft Suede thru the Big Shot with the Finial Press Impressions Folder and rubbed on Early Espresso Classic Ink on the raised areas.  I placed it on a base card of Blushing Bride cardstock.  I added a strip of Rose Red cardstock.  I made a bow of Very Vanilla 3/8 Taffeta Ribbon and put a Vintage Brad in the center and added it to the front with Mini Glue Dots.  Finally, I added You're A Gem from the You're A Gem stamp set, stamped with Early Espresso Classic Ink.

Connie , I just love your blog you never cease to amaze me .  This card reminds me of old vintage wallpaper you found in your grandmother's home and you place it on a card to honor her. Thanks for sharing 🙂
