When I Think of You

Today's card was inspired by Nina-Marie's card with lots of colourful balloons in a white background.
My take is slightly different :) I decided on a white background with monochromatic leaves and a burst of colour with a bright pink flower.

The Altenew products I used are

Build-A-Rose set
Dotted Scales Debossing Cover die
Here's my card...

To create the monochromatic background, I used the 3rd layer leaf stamp and stamped it on white cardstock using Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades inks. Then I die-cut the background with the Dotted Scales Debossing Cover die and cut it slightly smaller than the cardbase.

Next I stamped the Rose and leaves on another piece of white cardstock and die-cut them out. The inks I used are Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen and Jet Black.

For the sentiment, I decided to split the sentiments into two tones. I stamped "I Smile" using Black ink on white cardstock and the bottom half of the sentiment on a thin strip of black cardstock and white heat embossed. Then I adhered the black strip just below the top sentiment where it should be.

To finish the card, I assembled it and popped the flowers and leaves with foam adhesive for some added dimension.

Last week I just couldn't put a card together so I'm super glad to be more productive this weekend.

Have a lovely day!
