Gather the Rose of Love

Hello and happy Saturday. Today is a free week for us so I chose an older image from the Stamp It collection. You'll find this image and other great products at Crafter's Companion site. Below I'll tell you a little bit on how I made the card.

                The image was stamped in black dye ink, trimmed and then rubbed with Distress Ink Antique Linen. It gives it an aged look. I layered it to two patterned papers and inserted a brad. I also used the stitch punch at three sides of one of the patterned papers and also on the brown strip. A couple of dies were used to cut out a scalloped border and the small ribbon to the right. More brads were added to the woven ribbon also.
Hope you enjoyed this image. It would make a nice Mother's Day card or even a Birthday card.
Stop by next Saturday when we get into making Father's Day cards. Be sure to check out the other designer's cards.
