Hope Perches


You know how I love my embossing folders!  I especially love to use them with sentiments.  When a stamp set doesn't have an image, I tend to look through my embossing folder to see what would go with the sentiment.    For this card, I used the Bird Call Cuttlebug folder with the Hope Perches Plain Jane from Verve. 

I after I embossed the Sweet Blush cardstock, I rubbed a white craft ink pad across the embossed image to bring it out a bit more.  I stamped the sentiment in Berry Sorbet ink.  I added some scalloped borders with a border punch from Martha Stewart.  The little rose is a Fairytale Rose from Prima. 

Thanks for stopping by today and have a fabulous Sunday!  SUPPLIES USED:  Stamps- Hope Perches Plain Jane (Verve Stamps); Ink- Berry Sorbet, Fresh Snow (PTI); Paper- Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet (PTI), Pearlized White (Paper Accents);  Accessories- Bird Call Cuttlebug folder (Provocraft), Fairytale Rose (Prima Flowers), border punch (Martha Stewart), ribbon (Darice)pearls (Kaisercraft);  Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"
