#123 Rose Plaque

Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - anything goes!
Sponsor & prize this week - Digi Doodle Shop - $10 gift certificate

My card this week for ILP uses an image from our sponsor, Digi Doodle Shop called 'Corner Roses' and it comes complete with a bracketed shape for you to add your own text if you wish. (P.S. Digi Doodle have a number of free sentiments if you are in need of any [though perhaps at this point I should mention, not this particular sentiment], so it might be worth your while checking them out - though please, not before you have finished reading about my card. LOL).  Of course, you don't have to use this added extra shape but me being me, removed it and then re-added my own cut out version. This shape I then replicated to make my own red card base (cut using my Cameo) and cut a second version slightly smaller version of the same bracket shape from white card. This had the digi floral image printed on it & was cut as a print & cut, again using the Cameo.  Next, I got out my Promarkers to colour the roses.  I wanted to give the roses a 'special' feel so made them one of the fancy varieties. What is more, in the language of flowers, yellow roses with red tips mean friendship & falling in lurve - so how perfect for an anniversary card to indicate you are still falling for the same person day after day. Ahh - how romantic, eh?  LOL. Probably totally lost on the recipient of course, but I can but try. LOL.

So, I then added my red satin ribbon topped off with a similarly cut sentiment (I actually used one from Raindrop Echo Designs) out of which I had also cut a small heart to reveal the red mat beneath.  The sentiment's mat was then attached to the card base using foam pads & I dotted a single gem to the cut out heart. The reverse of the plaque has another similar white version for the 'square-bracket shape' for me to write the recipients names on later. 

The reverse - even more CAS! - but you get to see the stand shape too.

As all this was totally flat, I needed to create my 'plate stand' and this particular version I made a little more upright than my previous ones.  The overall effect is relatively CAS I suppose -especially for me, LOL, but hopefully interesting enough just the same and what is more, even with the sentiment on foam pads, will lie flat in an envelope for posting.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog today.
