Tissue Paper rosette....{Happy Birthday}




Hey blog friends!  Today I am sharing a card inspired by the Tissue Paper magic Challenge in the Moxie Fab World, the sketch challenge over at Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch blog and the colors from the Playdate Cafe.

the card....

My clean and simple card (!!!!!!whaaaa?  clean and simple hardly ever happens here).  Yup, had to let the pretty crepe paper rosette shine all on it's own so clean and simple it is.  I used the single-ended banner stamp from Waltzingmouse to make the double ended banner and also pieced together my sentiment and swirl from three different stamps from the Back in the Saddle set, also from Waltzingmouse stamps.  I love how WMS stamps can intermingle with each other....all it takes is some masking and careful inking of only the parts of the stamp you need.

I happened to have the perfect shade of Playdate Cafe Lime green crepe paper in my stash!  I assembled the rosette by covering a punched scalloped circle with adhesive and randomly ruffling the crepe paper as I went around the edge of the punched circle.  After the rosette was complete, I die cut it with the scalloped circle die from Spellbinders.  I love how those neatly scalloped edges turned out!  Another favorite technique in action here....I adhered Want2Scrap baby bling in red to the intersections created by the embossing on the lower half of the card.  Such a pretty touch.

Thanks for coming by today!

Hello Dana! I'm smitten with your CAS creation. I have that same fleur-de-lis embossing folder and have had trouble getting ideas to use it. You've given me inspiration! THanks for playing with us at The PLay Date Cafe. :)
