Blue Rose

As usual, I’m trying to catch up on more challenges (and I’ll be gone this weekend too, so more non-stamping time, boo). So this card is for the CAS-ual Friday color challenge (cfc63).

I love these colors! When I stamped the rose, I only used the top 2 layers of the stamp so that there would be plenty of white showing through – I think it makes it look more graphic/modern.

As for the layout – I started by trimming the card base down to just 4″ wide (a trick I learned from Maile Belles). Then I embossed the scallop square – it is harder to get that straight than I thought it would be, gah! Finally the rose is mounted with dimensionals.

Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. I really want this stamp set from PTI, but I was concerned about having to use 3 colors of ink. I love the results you got by only using 2 colors. It turned out just beautiful!

  2. Your rose is just gorgeous, especially with the white highlights! I love the debossed frame behind it, too. Thanks for joining us this week at CAS-ual Fridays!

  3. Karen – LOVE this card. The rose looks stunning in the two colors, and the embossed square is perfect! Thank you so much for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
