Leafy Swirl Rose Card

I made this card as a sample for the Large Rose stamp. I didn't know when I was making it that the Leafy Swirl stamps were also going to be on the show. It was one of those lucky coincidences but they do go very well together.

A while ago someone asked a question on a forum about what size cards people like to make. This was my answer "I think 8 x 8 is probably what I use most. I also like 6 x 6 and A5. Although for DT cards where I don't have to worry about envelopes, I just make them to fit what I'm making. Today I've made an 8.5 x 21cm card. It looks rather cute!"

They jokingly replied "Isn't that cheating?'. I guess in some ways it is but it also makes a lot of sense.

For this card I wanted to have the rose in the centre with the flourishes coming out either side of it. I stamped that out and then made the card to fit the topper. I think it ended up about 9 or 10 inches tall!

I stamped the sentiment onto some vellum using a black Stazon ink pad. The feather was stamped onto card and cut out before attaching it so that it looks like its just written the signature.

The ink bottle down the bottom is covered in Glossy accents to make it look like glass.

The red mat is white card coloured with the same red ProMarker as the rose.

Stamps Used
Pen and ink bottle stamps from the Remountable Artist Set
