Budding Borders with Rococo Rose

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog today.

For today’s card I have used a few stamps from the Budding Borders stamp set, sandwiched in between Rococo Rose Designer Series Paper, which have come together well and made a really nice feminine card. 

A sheet of Thick Whisper White A4 cardstock was cut to 5 13/16” on the long side, then one of the pieces was scored at 4 1/8” and folded to make the card base.  Using a sheet of DSP from the 2019-2021 In Colours, two pieces were cut from this (the patterns required were back-to-back on one sheet) each measuring 1 7/8” x 5½” wide.  These were attached to the card base.  Using the Budding Borders stamp set, the rose border was stamped in Real Red ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, then the leaf border was stamped in between in Pretty Peacock ink.  I coloured the roses in using Rococo Rose from my Stampin’ Write Markers, then the leaves were coloured in using Pretty Peacock from the same set.  I cut this to 15/16” x 5½” and adhered centrally to cover the join in the DSP.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, stamped with Versamark, followed by Rococo Rose ink then covered in Stampin’ Clear Emboss Powder and heat set.  This was cut using the smallest oval in the Stitched Shape Dies, then attached to complete the card.
