A Classy Card from the Grand Event

This card is very elegant, IMHO,  You will see in a later post that I cased it and made a similar card.

Isn't that pretty?  I really enjoyed putting all the parts together.  I found making the 4 part bow quite daunting at first but I got 'er done.  Not sure that I will do it again.  Time will tell. LOL!

The first part was to stamp a background.  Stamp set Brocade Print (SS-00016) was chosen and stamped in Pool Play (IP-0051).  It is a very pretty color.  Then, Two pieced circles were run through the Journey Grand machine ( JG- 0001) using the die Journey Circles (DI-0039.)

Both stamps come from stamp set Greeting Bouquet (SS-0139.)  The flower was stamped using Pomegranate Splash (IP-0008) and the greeting was stamped using Dark Roast (IP-0050).  It is such a rich dark chocolate.  I love it. 

The natural Journey Twine (AC-0005)was wrapped around the top layer 4 times and tied off in the back. Then the 4 part bow was glued down using small Journey Dots (AC-0083.)  The button comes from Journey Color Buttons II (AC-0098.)  It also was attached using the Journey Dots.  The greeting was then attached using medium Journey Foam Squares (AC-0085.)

The card was layered using card stock that matched the colors used in the top layer.  So there was Pool Play (CS-0092), Pomegranate Splash (CS-0027) and Dark Roast (CS-0091) as the base card.  And viola, the card is beautifully put together and is "Yummy and Delicious" as Richard Garay would say.  Check out his blog for more ideas.

I hope you enjoyed the journey into making this card. See you at next posting!
