This is the rose(GinaK) I told you about the other day. I love the way it was drawn.
I have an aunt and a Mother in Law who like roses and have October birthdays.... I'm trying to get a head start, but you know I won't mail it in time anyway.... it's sad... Oooh, I hope my aunt doesn't see this. I don't think she checks on a regular basis. Any way, I don't know if you can tell by the pictures, but the leaves* are stamped directly on the beige layer. To get the leaves in position, I actually stamped in the roses without worrying about masking because I was going to cover them up. I stamped two roses and two leaves on a separate piece of paper and colored them in.
The top rose is glued directly on top of that layer, the lower one is popped out with really thin pop dots.
*ETA, all the leaves except the two that hang over the edges of the square were stamped directly on the beige layer.
I scored a new Martha Stewart punch today and used that here too. The paper is Scarlet's Letter from Basic Grey.
OK, I just had a revelation. Instead of waiting until closer to the birth date and probably risk forgetting to mail it in time or not at all, we are going to sign this and mail it tomorrow. She'll get it early and... oh no! I hope I don't give anyone a heart attack or anything from the shock. LOL.
I was going to add another card made with the same rose and paper, but blogger isn't letting me add anymore pictures so I'll save that one for another day.
On a Personal Note:
Thanks for all your concern about my migraine. It's finally better as of late Friday afternoon. I think it was the chocolate I allowed myself to have. To be specific, I had Pepperidge Farm Milk Chocolate Milanos. I'm going to decide that they cured the headache, so I'll have a good excuse to eat them again next time.
Have a blessed weekend, send someone a card or something.... do as I say, not as I do!
Seriously, I actually went to the post office today with a handful of cards... better late than never! Choosing Joy! Jacki
