New Card

I hope everyone had a great day.  Mine was pretty relaxing,  however it is getting quite late and this is the first time I got to sit at the computer today to post a new handmade card.  I did get a couple of hours earlier to organize my craft room a little and to come up with some new ideas and cards, so that was great.  So I was sitting there looking at this Metallic Copper stamp pad and I was like yup this is what I want to use today for some new cards.  I tried a few different things before I came across this flower stamp.  It is from the Stampin Up set called Cottage Rose.  It’s from 1999 catalog so it’s quite old but I thought it was perfect.  I stamped the big flower with the copper metallic ink  and layered it with Creamy Caramel paper.  I then attached t3 brown eyelets to the bottom corner.  Next   I embossed the happiness always with gold powder. That saying is from the set called Happy Harmony.    I then layered that also with the Creamy Caramel paper  and then tied black organdy ribbon on the bottom..  Next I took a smaller flower stamp from the same set and stamped little flowers on the whole background with the copper metallic ink and then attached the pieces together.  I think this handmade card turned out great. I feel that is is very elegant.  This is usually not my style.  I showed this to my sister and she was like you made that.  So I guess maybe my cards are changing some.  I keep looking  at all your great cards and I think that they inspire me.  Have a great night .
