Miss you My Friend

I really enjoyed the lesson With a Twist at Altenew Academy.  It's fun to use a favourite technique and adding something unexpected.

Here are the products I used on my card:

Cross Stitch Flower die
Cross Stitch Flower Stamp set
Sweet Rose Bouquet Stamp set
Layered Medallions Cover Die A - Altenew
Layered Medallion Cover Die A
I am in love with the new Altenew cross stitch stamps and dies so I thought it would be fun to use the cross stitch die with a twist.

The twist component on my card is instead of using the stamp which matched the Cross Stitch Flower die, I used the Sweet Rose Bouquet stamp.

On a piece of white cardstock, I run the Flower die through my die cutting tool. Next I created a mask for the flower die and another mask for the area around the flower.  With the help of MISTI, I stamped the flower stem using Altenew Inkpads Evergreen and Forest Glades. Then I placed the mask around the flower and the stem area. 

Using the stamp set Sweet Rose Bouquet, I stamped the flowers using the Cherry Blossom inks and the leaves and stems with the Green inks on the area of the Cross Stitch die imprint.

For the background I die cut the Medallion Cover die and used it as a stencil and sponged some Distress inks Worn Lipstick and Shaded Lilac.  The sentiment is from the Cross Stitch Flower stamp set.  To finish off the card, I added some flower sequins.

What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by and Have a Great Day!

What an imaginative twist you gave this card Kary - I love it! The texture behind the stamping is fabulous and unique, and I love the wee bit of cross stitching stamp that you included
