It is May already... where is the year going?
The rosette was made with a Tim Holtz die and coloured before putting together.
I embossed a dark green layer then attached the other two layers to it, applying the whole to the base card. I tied the ribbon with the bow maker that my clever OH made for me! Makes tying bows really easy too...
I made this card for a friend. The image was stamped on card then a wax resist applied using embossed waxed paper ironed onto the card. A layer of distress ink was then applied to produce the patter on the background of the image. I covered the show with flowers and leaves and coloured the ribbon in a darker purple.
I scalloped a piece of black card for the background layer to the image then laid them onto a background embossed with the same folder I had used for the wax resist layer. Attached a scalloped ribbon to the bottom of the layer then attached to a square card.
The sentiment is from a Tim Holtz set and reads: Friendship can not be measured, only treasured.

I cut the base out of brown card then cut layers for the front, back and sides from the same card. These I textured with an embossing folder and the Cuttlebug. I added some lace curtains to the windows and rubbed some gold paint into the embossed door.
The fence was coloured with Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint and layered onto the house. The trees were stamped with a freebie from Craft Stamper and the birds and bird house were from a stamp set designed by Sue Law.
The roof of the house was cut from thick crimped card and attached to the house.
