Friday Sketchers - Valentine Roses

This is my take for the Friday Sketchers. Tried to keep it simple and clean. I also tried to create a shabby chic look by distressing and sanding the edges. Am not sure if I managed so would appreciate any comments, ladies.


Card Blank
Red, Black and white cardstock
Black Ribbon
Papermania Love Collection Kit
Papermania Large heart brads
Everyday tower brad
Scalloped scissors
Flower stamp (swapped image)
Fancy Pants - Swirls Stamp
Faber Castell Water colours
Pebbles Inc. I love you rub ons

How to

  1. Cut a red panel, slightly smaller than card blank. Cut an even smaller panel from the love collection kit. Tear the edges of the last piece, sand and distress the edges. Use the rub-ons to write the sentiment, making sure the word 'love' is in the circle.
  2. Stamp/colour the image. Use a printer to create the oval frame around the image and cut. Cut a black frame using the edging scissors.
  3. Put two brads on two corners and fix the ribbon behind the larger panel as shown.
  4. Assemble everything as shown and stamp the flourishes to finish off.

Your card is great, nice to see how you have interpreted the sketch... I've had a go at this one too and it's up on my blog. You do clean very well. I love the flourish stamping down the side. Thank you for your kind comment on my blog.
