I used 3 colors for my card: pale plum, kiwi kiss, and not quite navy (all SU inks.)
I know it's "rosie posie" again, and you'd think after making 16 cards, I wouldn't pick up it up again for awhile... but I love it, and it. was. right. there. hee hee! Ever just use a set because it's on the desk-top? Such a lazy crafter :)
I stamped all the images in full-strength and then again without re-inking. Made it really fast to fill up the space! I then stamped the hero arts envelope pattern in the plum color over the whole thing. The gingham border on the side wraps around to the back of the card, like a book spine. Love that look. On the front, I added a scalloped edge, peeking out from under... The gingham border was stitched down on either side.
I then cut out the large flower and some leaves. The leaves were stuck down to the card, but I played with their edges to give them some dimension. The flower was mounted on foam squares to give it some more height. The card-base looks a bit purple in that second photo, but it's really a nice navy blue :)
Hope you like it! Have a great weekend.
