A Retro Card for a True Friend :-)

Hi Again, Stampers!!

I decided to create a card using the colors in this week’s DD50 Dynamic DuosChallenge along with a soon-to-be retired set, Printed Petals.  The flowers in this set seem a bit retro to me, so I decided to go with a more contemporary card :-)   A bit out of my comfort zone but that is what I love about weekly challenges :-)

Again, if you have a chance, stop by the Dynamic Duos site- they are starting their new Design Team rotation next week-can't wait to see the creations from the new team (they already provide so much inspiration)!

To create this card:      
Using the Embossing Buddy® , de-static a piece of Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral and stamp the floral image using Versamark™ ink.  Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool to melt the powder.  Once cooled, carefully cut out each flower and use the ¾” Circle Punch to punch out the center of each flower.

Use the 1” Circle punch to punch out two circles from Blushing Bride and one from Calypso Coral cardstock.  Adhere the floral center circles onto the cardstock circles to form the flower centers and mount onto each flower.

Another view to try to photograph the Rhinestones :-)
Use the Big Shot™ along with the Elegant Lines Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Calypso Coral and a piece of Blushing Bride Designer Series Paper.  Mount both onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and add the ½” Basic Black cardstock strip to hide the seam between the two.

Cut the horizontal strips from Basic Black cardstock­ they are approx. an inch wide and add the ½” wide panel of Blushing Bride on one strip and Calypso Coral on the other two.  Emboss these strips using the Big Shot™ with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.

Adhere the horizontal strips to the card front and add the flowers using Glue Dots™. 
Add the sentiment layer and Rhinestones around the floral centers and at the edge of the sentiment to finish off the card.

This is such a fun, modern card. Fun patterns and textures, and I love how you used the colors with black - adds a nice drama to it. Thank you so much for joining us at Dynamic Duos this week. ;-)
