Sometimes you need an extra special card. I needed one that expressed my deep caring for a friend and I wanted to make it special and convey caring. I thought about this stamp set called Rose Wonder that has this great sentiment that I know she will appreciate. I thought I would share it with you to show the layering that you can do to a background to make it extra special.
I applied a watercolor wash and then some stamped off sentiments, and then some stenciling and finally some embellishments.
I used the cut out leaf first as a stencil on the back, then flipped it back over to glue to the card front.
The inside needed some extra attention as well, so I stamped another sentiment and added a flower too.
I made a step by step video for the background, which you can see here.
