Roses and Thanks

If there is one thing I's layers and dies to use to create them!  I've got lots of both used to create this Thank You card:

This card starts with a standard black cardstock A2 base (5&1/2" by 4&1/4") and the next layer is 5&1/4" by 4" piece of black swirl print paper (Photo Play Belle Vie).

To create the copper lattice:  Cut the JustRite A2 Butterfly Card Front die out of white cardstock, coat in embossing ink of choice (I used Ranger Embossing Dauber) and emboss using copper powder (I used Ranger).  Next step to give it a unique texture, I dabbed randomly (and lightly) over the copper embossing powder, and then used Ranger Black Soot Distress embossing powder.  This piece was glued directly to a soft script piece of patterned paper, then foam taped to card front.

Next layer of a piece of floral patterned paper cut into a large banner and mat on black cardstock.  Glue to center of card front.

For the center sentiment:
Layer 1--Vintage Labels Die (largest) from black cardstock
Layer 2 &3--Hello Decorative Oval Frame Die (plain oval from pink patterned paper and then scalloped oval from black stripe patterned paper--this layer is foam taped)
Layer 4--Vintage Labels Die (next to smallest) cut from white cardstock and brushed with Scattered Straw Distress Ink--this is stamped with border and sentiment from Small Oval Wishes stamp set.

The roses are from the Small Oval Wishes stamp set....stamped in Black Tuxedo Memento ink, colored with Copic Markers, and fussy cut out.

Add rhinestones and a bow to finish.  (PS there is a little sneak peek of a June release die....the gorgeous damask details peeking out from each edge of the sentiment oval!).

Thanks for stoppin' by today....stop back soon!  Sharing some exciting news soon!
