Hidden Messages

Sorry I've been MIA for a week. We had our son and his sweet wife home from Ohio for a family wedding that took place on Saturday, so we've been busy~busy enjoying our time together. I must say it was a beautiful wedding but most difficult without my mom there to enjoy it with us. Life is hard without her but I know you didn't come here to hear me sob so I'll get right to my card.
Today's card was made for the Happy Little Stamper Sketch Challenge that's going on right now!
Here's the inspiration sketch

Here's my take on this sketch

I started by cutting my scalloped panel from MFT's Blueprints #20 and the front panel from Blueprints #13. I stamped the beautiful rose images from Altenew's Vintage Roses. I added a few random dots, stamped very lightly, from PTI's Petite Pots. I then cut the "thanks" sentiment out of the center using My Creative Time's Hello Frame Dies. I cut the sentiment out two more times using plain card stock and stacked them together to give it dimension when placed back into the negative space, creating a hidden message. The rest of the sentiment is from PTI's Embroidered Blooms.

There's still time to join in on the fun sketch challenge over at Happy Little Stampers. You can find all the details about this challenge as well as their other challenges going on right now, HERE.

Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~

  3. Gorgeous card Birgit. Your rose spray is so beautiful with the multi-layered stamping. I love the raised design of the die-cut thanks. I can imagine how difficult it was to cut into your amazing card front to create that, but it looks incredible. Great job! xx

  6. Love your gorgeous roses and the colors you chose. It has such a pretty vintage look. I am loving stacked inlaid die cuts these days, and yours is no exception. I think it will have the recipient in awe wondering how'd she do that!
