You Are Loved


Today I'm sharing a "rustic" version of Graciellie Design's 
most recent digital stamp release: Together.


To create this card I:
  • Embossed a piece of Kraft Card Stock with the 3D Lumber embossing folder from Tim Holtz
    • Inked over it with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink (Ranger)
    • Matted it on black card stock and glued it to a cream colored card base
  • Printed the rose image from Together on an old dictionary page
    • Colored my image with Prismacolor Pencils and fussy cut it
  • Mounted my roses on a coffee stained doily
  • Added two pieces of Washi Tape to the upper left corner
  • Inverted a sentiment from the Together set and printed it on kraft card stock
    • distressed the edged and popped it up off the card with mounting tape
  • Added a burlap string bow to the stems of my flowers
