3D Vintage Vogue ....

The new Stampin Up catalogue launches today .... anyone else been eagerly awaiting today to get their first order in? If  you haven't already got your copy ..... where have you been? .... there are so many new stamps, colours, dies and ..... fabric!

My Mum needed to make a Ruby Anniversary card for a friend, so she put Cherry Cobbler in my mind. The flower was made from 4 of the big flowers, removing another petal on each layer and then adding the cut away ones to build up the middle. The centre was finished with a mix of Basic Pearls and Rhinestones. Even though the flower is 3D, it will flatten to fit in an envelope ready to pop back up when it's opened.

I am loving the music notes wheel, it's so versatile, I've used it on Christmas, Wedding, Birthday designs already.

I like to decorate the insides of cards too, especially to give somewhere to write the message when I have used a dark coloured card for the base.

If I was going to make this card again, I don't think I would add the flower again; it looks so different flat than on the front of the card.

Su Materials used:
Stamps: Vintage Vogue, Music Notes Wheel, Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Inks: Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake
Dies: Topnote, Little Leaves
