You Are Beautiful!

Hi Friends... Kendra here today to share my first card with the new Creative Cafe Kit for March.  The kit is called Fashionable Accessories and it's just filled with lovely girly images & sentiments.

The main stamp set for the kit is called "Friendship is the Best Accessory" and the rose bouquets I stamped are from that set.  I inked them up in Memento Luxe Rich Cocoa ink and then heat embossed them with clear powder.  After that, I colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut them with my scissors.  Once those were finished, I set them aside and worked on the rest of the pieces of my card.

To get started, I cut the card base and mats needed for the card: Kraft (5 1/2" x 8 1/2") and scored in the center; blueish/green cardstock trimmed slightly smaller than the card base; white embossed cardstock, 4" x 5 1/4".    I also trimmed the circles and scallop circle with dies and attached them together.

Since the white embossed cardstock was a bit too white for the card, I took some sage green chalk and applied it to card panel.  Then I attached it to the bluish/green panel.

Next, I decided to make the white seam binding ribbon a coral color to match the card a little better.  So I used a coral marker and colored it.  I tied the ribbon around the panels and secured it with some jute from the kit.  Then I attached that panel to the card base. 

To jazz up the white roses in the kit, I used a paint brush to add Memento Angel Pink ink refill to the each petal.

For the second rose, I added the Angel Pink and then painted on Memento Rose Bud ink refill to the edges.

I used the flower stem wires to attach them to the knotted ribbon.

Once I added the layered circles to the card with foam dots, I attached some of the Vintage Lace banner stickers from the kit and then attached my stamped roses with foam dots.

Have fun with this super girly kit!!  It will be perfect for Mother's Day!
