Rose Thanks

Hello Stampers ~ I have a Rose Thanks for you today.

Well yesterday was a very successful day in more ways than 1.  I got my 2 projects completed at the yarn shop.  Look for you hat in the mail next week Barb!  I then came home and clean my bathrooms and vacuumed my house.  Then I had rope lights above my cabinets I needed to replace so I did that.  I also have a bunch of Longaberger baskets up there so I took them down and cleaned the protectors and washed the liners.  Then I put my 2 trees together so they are ready to be decorated this weekend.  I did all that in a matter of 4 1/2 hours.  I was on a roll.  Today I have 2 workshops so I knew I would not have time to do much today so I got it done last night.

Today at the Card a Day Challenge blog our challenge is    

C.A.S.E. A Card Challenge:

This is a clean and simple card so I needed to make sure my card was clean and simple.  I do not have a large bird in my stamps so I thought I would use a butterfly.  Well my butterfly was not big enough so I went looking for another idea.  I ran across my Rose Wonder stamp set and knew I could use it.  I wanted to give this card to someone who loves red so I decided to use Real Red for my card.  I cut my card base at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored it on the long side at 4 ¼”.  Another panel was cut from the Real Red that measures 4’ x 5 ¼”.  Since I was going to be embossing this panel, I used my Embossing Buddy to avoid stray flecks.  Using this panel I stamped my rose using Versamark ink.  Gold embossing powder was sprinkled on it and then heated with a heat gun.  Next I used the same procedure for my sentiment.  Now that my sentiment and image were embossed, I was ready to add my ribbon.  I chose some of the 1/8” gold ribbon.  I wrapped a piece around the front and attached it to the back using Tear & Tape.  My panel was complete so I added it to the card base using dimensionals.  To finish off the card I added a gold bow using the same 1/8” gold ribbon.  My card is now ready to mail!
