This Four Frames card is a bit of a step up from the ones earlier this week. I wanted a richer, more elegant card and decided to dress the card up with vellum, satin ribbon and an antique brad.
I heat embossed the roses from the Elements of Style stamp set with white embossing powder onto vellum paper and then layered onto an Old Olive pattern from the Paisley Petals designer series paper and Whisper White and Old Olive cardstocks.
I stamped the rose frame from the Four Frames stamp set (doesn’t this image match the larger one nicely?) onto Old Olive cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. After punching the stamped image out with the Decorative Label punch, I added it to the card above pinched Old Olive satin ribbon and an antique brad.
I really like the way this card turned out. It just might be the Mother’s Day card for my Mom.
