A Classy Rose

Good Evening, sorry I did not return with a card yesterday. The weather here was unusually warm and my day turned into a extremely productive day just not in my craft room. I took advantage of it by doing some yard cleanup, how nice to get rid of the winter remnants left. I then had a totally unbrainy idea, considering condition of my back, to clean up the garage. I can tell you today this was not at all a smart move if you get my drift. URGH I did however, manage to organize and sort through another section only 99 more to go!

Here is a card I wanted to share it was created for a dry embossing group's sketch challenge. I cased the scalloped edging . The idea came from another dry embossing friend Shelly, who sent me a RAK that I fell in love with. To create you use the largest Classic Scalloped Paisley Nestability and mask off the part you don't want cut or embossed. After cutting and embossing this tri fold card I ran the upper section through Cuttlebug "Swiss Dot" folder and attached this very soft Anna Griffin paper to the bottom. I completed it by creating a closure band, attached the embossed rose to an oval Nestability to complete it. I did brush ink to edges to give a slightly aged look using my favorite ink.

It turned out awesome Nettie. I wouldn't have even guessed it was an LI stencil! This would make a great Mother's Day, Sympathy, Get Well or Wedding card. I think this may be one stencil that I need to get.
