I decided to use the gorgeous Calming Camellia set that you can earn when you host a $300 party (or place your own $300 (US) order). Wowza! The images in the set are stunning!
For my first card, I went with a monochromatic design. The large camellia image is perfect on its own. I stamped the image in Basic Gray Ink just off the right side of a 3-3/4" by 5" Gray Granite card stock panel. I added a few swirls and one of the sentiments from the set.
I adhered this to a 4" by 5-1/4" Basic Gray Card Stock mat. Then I added two lengths of Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon, tying a sweet bow at the bottom. I adhered this to a Gray Granite Card Stock card base and then added some Iridescent Rhinestones to finish the card.
I thought it would be fun to "colorize" this card--just like they've done with old black and white movies. So after I stamped the image, I squeezed some Petal Pink Ink into the lid of the stamp pad and colored the flowers with a Blender Pen. I did the same thing to color the leaves with Soft Sea Foam Ink. And, because I couldn't help myself, I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers.
This card uses Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon and is on a Petal Pink Card Stock card base. I embellished the card with Elegant Faceted Gems. You might also notice that I masked the sentiment to exclude the word "today" so I can use it as a sympathy card.I hope you enjoyed my creations and I know you'll really love what Elizabeth Price has in store for you.
