90th Birthday

This is a card I've made for an order for a lady at work for her Nana's 90th Birthday. I've used one of my favourite stamps from an Elusive Images set. I stamped it twice and cut the rose out using a square Nestability. I've painted the flower with Distress Inks and then used Victorian Velvet DI around the edge. The embossed panel is made using the Victorian EF and I've stamped inside the folder using the Bella Toile Stampin' Up background stamp then embossed the card. I've rubbed Victorian Velvet over the top of the embossing and punched the edge with a Martha Stewart punch.

The text has been done on my PC and then I've cut them out using a Tim Holtz Sizzix die and rubbed some more DI around the edge. The rose in the centre of the bow is the same main stamp and I've stamped it onto shrink plastic and cut out the flower head.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges :

  5. OMG, Sue, this is totally AMAZING. I'm drooling here! That stamp is fabulous and I thought the script was part of it until I read that you created that on your computer. I want that font - what is it? I have been looking for a great script font and that fits the bill perfectly! Gorgeous color work and a cool technique to cut out the rose and layer it over itself. And the tabs for the sentiment - wow, this card is just full of wonderful touches!
