Graceful Garden ~ Inspired by Paper Pumpkin

Today’s card was inspired by one of the designs in March’s Paper Pumpkin kit which has a lovely vintage theme going on.  So I have chosen to use  Fresh Fig and Crumb Cake with the Graceful Garden Stamp set and lots of sponging.

One of the greetings in the stamp set says  ‘for you’ I think this is such a simple message that can be used for just about any occasion, birthday, thank you, anniversay, sympathy……. and so on.

Card base:  8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Fresh Fig Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4

Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Crumb Cake Card

Ink Colors: Fresh Fig, Crumb Cake and Versamark

The large rose from the stamp set was stamped using Versamark – you could use Crumb Cake ink to get the ‘tone-on-tone’ effect but Versamark gave me a softer tone.  The flower is cut from Vellum Card, using the Pansy punch and the leaves with the Leaf punch.  I used my bone folder to put the ‘veins’ in the leaves to give them a little more life.  Everything was sponged with Crumb Cake ink to give the vintage look.
