Rose | Start Your Day Card | Melinda

Happy Saturday Shimmerz friends,
Melinda here with you, and today I am sharing a card featuring the Shimmerz Fresh Start Stamp Set.

Here is a look at my completed card. It  is an A2, top folding card created with some black cardstock as the base. I then added another piece of black for a mat.

Here is a closer look at the background. I cut strips of 3/4” wide white cardstock and then ran them through my die cut machine with a wood grain embossing folder. I then spritzed the paper with some Jenni B Bleu Vibez spray. I hit the raised parts with my white pigment ink pad and then dabbed some additional spray onto various areas to get the depth and variation of color.

Here’s a closer look at the square mat the roses sit on. It to started out as plain white cardstock. I spritzed that with a combination of Jenni B Blue Vibez and some Glorious Day Vibez. I love the mix of warm and cool colors. I matted that onto a lace square panel I created and cut from my craft cutting machine.

Here is a closer look at the flowers. I used two of the three layered stamps in the Fresh Start Stampz set. I then brushed just a touch of Pink Bubble Gum Blast Shimmerz  Paint to the flowers and added some pearls to the centers.

I stamped the sentiment with some gray ink and then mounted it to my card. Here you can also see the little pearl embellishments to accent the frame.

I finished of the card by adding a border of seam binding down the middle and then adding a bow to that.

Here is one last look at my completed card. It really is not too hard to reproduce and is a lot of fun to add these beautiful sprays and paints to see what beautiful effects they create!
