Elegance with Anna Griffin


I couldn't wait to make this card. I LOVE Anna Griffin images, and Anita has a fabulous kit of borders in her Anna Griffin Elegant Borders Clear Stamp Kit. It includes 21 of Anna's Favorite borders, and they are GORGEOUS!! It was tough to choose only two, but this is what I came up.

If you click on the photo you can see the details better.

I stamped the borders onto Birchtone Light (Prismatics) with Perfect Plum (Stampin' UP!), and glitzed it up a bit with Ultrafine Transparent Glitter (JudiKins), and Multi-colored Mini Rhinestones (ZVA Creations).

The main flower was made with the Stampin' UP! diecut Flower Daisies #2. I diecut them them, spritzed them with water and rolled them onto a stylus. They maintain their shape when they dry.

Hope you're having a fabulous week!!
I'm getting ready for my son to come home from his Freshman year at college. Woo-Hoo!!!

Happy Stamping my blogging friends!!
Tosh

What a stunningly elegant monochrome-style card. It reminds me of those old sepia-tinted photos.

Amazing! I can't get over your clever ideas and they manner in which you carry them out. Your daisies are just unreal curled to perfection. I wish I could get the remains of my eyelashes to curl so evenly. I adore your card, Tosh. You did a fantastic job. Dare I say, you've outdone yourself. Again.
