Paper Craft Crew 288 – Concord & 9th Painted Rose
Welcome back to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge! This week we have an inspiration challenge.
I knew exactly what I wanted to use for this challenge, as I had a beautiful new Concord & 9th set just waiting to be used, Painted Rose. Lookie:
GOJUS! This was actually a pretty fast card to throw together (relatively speaking!)
I stamped the rose using the Sea Shore mini ink cubes from Altenew. There is a nice photo tutorial about how to line up the stamps on Concord & 9th’s site. I then cut it out using the matching die.
I created the background using the Sketched Stripes Background stamp, which you can use to make plaids, but I just wanted stripes. For that rustic wood element, I also added a bit of cherry wood tape. It was a bit darker than I liked, so I pickled it using Hero Arts Unicorn White pigment ink. I added a strip of some rose gold washi tape from Prima that they discontinued when I wasn’t looking. I wanted that hint of pink that was in the photo, and I thought a bit of rose gold would do the trick, and it did! So I went even further and added some rose gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
This would be a great card for a wedding, a shower, an anniversary, or even a birthday! I love how it turned out!
