VersaGlaze Flowers

Here's a fun thank you card I made using a brand new technique!!!

I used the Stampin' Up! "Live Your Dream" set. I have not played with that set much and to play with it using a new technique was even more fun!!

I used glossy card stock and sponged in the background colors using Ballet Blue and Night of Navy. I sponged the edges using Night of Navy. I then layered it on top of Sage Shadow, Apricot Appeal and Whisper White card stock. All of which I had run through the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss folder. The white spot on the bottom part of the stems is from the flash on the glossy card stock. Sorry about that. I didn't pay attention to it when I was taking the picture. But then again it shows you that it was glossy card stock!!! LOL

The "Thank You" was from a rubber stamp I had special made. I used the oval punches and oval scallop punch for the words and layers. I added 3 black brads to the Sage Shadow piece and it was enough to finish off the card. Though as I look at it I'm not thrilled with the color scheme but it's done and all taped together so there's not much I can do about it but start over and I'm not going to do that today!!! I've got TOO many other things to tend to today!

Stay tuned, I will be posting that technique later in the week. First I have to type it up and figure out what stamp to use for the technique page and then to get a page finished to post here!!! It is a very fun and different technique.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Beautiful card and I like the color scheme. But, did I miss how you did the flowers? Are they just stamped, or embossed in some way?
