Fifth Avenue Get Well

I had some card kits left over from my last workshop and wanted to see what I could come up with for a get well card.  This is the first time I've inked up any of the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set.  I think it turned out okay - not great, but okay.

The idea for the embossed border was CASEd from Sandi McIver's brilliant idea here. I never in a million years would have thought of that on my own! 

The rose was stamped in Melon Mambo on watercolor paper, softened with blender pens, then outlined lightly with Crushed Curry and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals. The ribbon is the reverse side of the Rich Razzleberry Polka-dot Grosgrain ribbon.  I love that you get two looks from one ribbon!  Swarovski crystals completed the card.

  1. Oh my goodness, did you really cut up an embossing folder? How brave! What a beautiful card!

  2. Love your card. The colors of the rose really caught my attention. Did you just insert the edge of the card in the folder for the embossed edge?
