Artisan Embellishment Kit with Something Borrowed

Well, day two of the Something Borrowed series, as I come up with some make & takes for the retreat I'm planning in February.  Today I married the Designer Series Paper with the Artisan Embellishment Kit for a design that I have had in my mind for several days now. I'm just thrilled that it turned out the way I imagined it!

  • I used a palette of Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral and Sahara Sand for this card and I love the warmth it gives. The Something Borrowed DSP is the background panel on a Crisp Cantaloupe card base and matted with Sahara Sand cardstock. The Something Borrowed panel is popped up on Dimensionals.
  • From the Artisan Embellishment Kit comes this little die cut panel of roses. It is Sahara Sand on one side and Whisper White on the other. I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the same dimensions and placed it under the roses. With a pencil, I lightly marked the center of all the roses, and traced the leaves. If there wasn't a center to the rose, I marked a little arc showing the outer edge of the center.
  • I sponged some Calypso Coral with a sponge dauber over the middle of all the marks for the centers of the roses. I then added more Calypso Coral around the center, but spread it out more so it was less saturated. I sponged some Sahara Sand ink where the leaves would be, then filled in the rest with Crisp Cantaloupe, again using a sponge dauber, and using it to blend the colours a little by overlapping. With the sponging finished, I used very small dabs of Tombow Multipurpose glue to adhere the rose die cut to the sponged panel. It is mounted to the card front on an angle.
  • The sentiment is from Remembering Your Birthday stamp set from the Annual Catalogue. I thought the font was just right for this card. I added it over some Sahara Sand Lace Trim, which is set on the same angle as the roses for interest's sake. A little Rosette Trim, also from the Artisan Embellishment Kit completes the look.
And Tuesday means:
