Hugs & Kisses

Hello Crafty Friends... Mitsyana Wright here!!
And I'm back again with Fleurette Bloom Stamps... whom has just asked me to be a part of their Design Team!!! Eeeeeek!! How cool is that??!!

I don't know about you but hearing great news like that always make me feel loved! And I've been in a very lovey-dovey type of mood lately... lots of warm fuzzies!


And what says love better than red roses...I think roses are very romantic, by the way!

 So, I made this simple, elegant, and "tres romantique" card using Fleurettes new Roses in Bloom set.



I started by stamping my image a total of three times. 

Next, I colored them  and I added highlights using a white gel pen.

I cut out two of the images by hand, and the third I die cut using a stitched circle die. Then embossed the die cut with an embossing folder.

I added foam adhesive to the back of the flowers and layered them onto each other for more dimension and removed one of the flowers for the very top layer.

I used this light green paper  and created a A7 (5"x 7" folded) sized card base.

Then die cut printed text paper  using a stitched rectangle die. 
I used a tape runner to attach my rectangle to the front of my card base.

I used the same circle die from earlier and traced around the outside diameter of the die as a template. Then hand cut out the traced shape and layered it under my paper pieced roses.

I added foam tape under the circle for more dimension then adhered it to my card front.

I die cut a pennant and the letters XOXO and adhered the little flag to the card, slightly tucking it behind the circle.

Lastly, I added a heart shaped cabochon using a clear quick dry adhesive.


You can really see all the added dimension with all the different layers (above picture).

Finished Card

I really hope you enjoyed my project for today and that it filled you with 
a bit of love, a little romance, or even some heartfelt inspiration.

Wishing you lots of hugs, kisses, & Valentine Wishes,
Mitsy
