Hi everyone! It’s Lisa with you today. As October winds down I thought I’d make one last pink card to celebrate all the women who have fought, ARE fighting, have beat, and have sadly lost the battle with breast cancer,
There is TONS of dimension on this card. From the “Hope” ticket tag, the rose itself, to the panel that it’s all on. It’s thick, shimmery, shiny, and super pretty.
The roses are watercolored, stenciled and sprayed over (which really makes them “pop”), on one rose I used a glaze for that high shine (with a teeeensy weeeensy bit of glitter on top), I rounded two corners and then adhered the panel to a grey panel that was cut to size using E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable. On the grey panel I also rounded two corners and on the opposite corners I added the beautiful Pink Creative Photo Corners (a portion of the sales of the Pink Photo Corners will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation). I inserted the Memo Pin through both layers of paper and then wrapped the ribbon around the panel. I used the Dodz™ Medium under the ribbon to secure the ribbon in place.
On the front of the card base I used dies and patterned paper to cut the 3 panel. To secure to the card base I (again) used my E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable. Now I was ready to secure my panel! And, of course, I used plenty of 3D Foam Squares Regular, White to do this. I tucked a few under the “Hope” tag, too.
Here’s a few close-ups:
I do hope that you enjoyed today’s card as much as I enjoyed making it. It was truly a labor of love. ♥
