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. http://richardgaray.com
