Hello everyone. Today I am sharing a card I have crafted for a friend whose birthday I forgot.... Oops. Truly I am not a good person - I often forget birthdays until the day of. Last year every one of my girlfriends got their cards late - except the one who got hers two weeks earlier. Well I guess I am on the same schedule again this year. All I can say is my lack of timeliness in no way is an expression of how much I care for the recipient!
This card was fun to make. I used the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month set, "Happiness is" along with my Silhouette Cameo to make this card. I started with a basic light pink base card and added a strip of pretty floral cardstock. On to that I add this beautiful Battenburg Lace cut. The Battenburg Lace is a cut file available at SVGcuts.com. I LOVE this file. In addition to the Battenburg cuts, there are also number of other lace cuts included in the $6.99 file. I used the basic square Battenburg cut, stretched a bit to fit my card front.
I stamped my double layer stamped roses onto the light pink cardstock oval on the card and onto smooth white cardstock. I used scissors to cut out the roses stamped on white. I placed the cut out roses over top of the roses stamped on the oval, raising the larger rose with pop dots. I added two leaves. The roses were stamped in CTMH ink. The bottom layer is Blush and the top is Hollyhock. I love the CTMH pinks!
I have to tell you that I love this Battenburg lace cut and plan to use it a lot more often. I cannot wait to see this cut as a background on a scrap page!
