SSC214...

For a card which started out as a bit of an idea in my head, it turned into a very complicated one.  After colouring, ripping, tearing, stamping, then stamping, colouring, inking, embossing I think I am happy with the final result but....

The card was created from the challenge over at Stamping 411 and you know wthat that means - All measurements have been done for you.
 
Here’s some possible measurements to get you started:
1.Layer One – Card Base cut at 5.5 x 8.5, scored and folded
2.Layer Two – 4 x 5.25”
3.Layer Three – Die Cut or other Shape – approximately 3.5”
4.Layer Four – 3.25”
5.Layer Five – 3”

I cut my 2nd layer using Whisper White Cardstock, stamped using my SU Wheel & Basic Grey Ink.  It has been so long since I have used a Wheel that I quiet enjoyed it again & must remember to use them more often.  I randomly coloured the image using my Aqua Painter & Pink Pirouette Ink. I wasn't too concerned about going out of the lines or how I coloured it as I think it looks a little better this way.  This was adhered to my base card - Pink Pirouette Cardstock.
 
I cut my 3rd layer using Pink Pirouette Cardstock but didn't do a border as it looked a little too much when I did, so I skipped it.  I do hope the operators will forgive me for this.  I then stamped the flower images using Basic Grey & Pink Pirouette Inks stamping randomly over Whisper White Cardstock.  This piece was run through my Bigshot using Embossing Folder - Perfect Polka Dots.  I adhered this to a piece of Basic Grey, adhered to the Pink Pirouette, added a piece of Satin Ribbon, tied a bow & then adhered to the base card.  I applied Basic Pearls to the middle of the flowers. 
 
Now you ask how could this take me hours to create & finish, but believe me it did!  I nearly gave in a number of times, but wouldn't let it get the better of me.  This is for a special 50th Birthday.  I know it has no greeting, etc but I like them to be blank sometimes, especially for such a special occasion!
 

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Vintage Vogue
Ink - Basic Grey, Pink Pirouette
Cardstock - Pink Pirouette, Basic Grey Whisper White
Embossing Folder - Perfect Polka Dots

Now, I must go & do what I am supposed to be doing - printing & creating invitations!
 
Until next time, Enjoy!
