MANHATTEN ROSE

First off I must give credit where it is due. I found this awesome technique at Patty's Stamping Spot.
She has a wonderful vidoe tutorial. My sister needed a few cards, so I gave this technique a whirl. I LOVE how it turned out. It is great for making assembly line type cards when you need a few. I like it too, because it has such a great WOW factor without tons of work.

It is also great because the results are beautiful and it won't require extra postage to mail since it is still a thinner card.


I made six cards in total. I was also able to use my new Oval All stamp set and matching Oval Scalloped punch. This technique uses the brayer...so I got some practice with that again today too. I then just stamped a few leaves from an old SU Daisy flower set.
I added a butterfly from the Martha Stewart punch. It is stamped in vellum, and layered on matching card stock. I then added some dazzling diamonds glitter.
Hope you like them. Have a great day.
Gloria
