This beautiful peachy rose comes from Healing Hugs,a “Distinktive” stamp set. Distinktive stamps are made with a special, patent-pending manufacturing process to create photo-realistic images. The special texture of the stamp gives a lot of depth and dimension.

I love the summery, cheerful colors in this card,  There are a lot of individual pieces, but it was easy to make.

The card is standard size.  I cut an 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 piece of Thick Whisper White card stock, and scored the long side at 4 1/4. I burnished the fold, then layered a piece of 5 1/4 x 4 Whisper White card stock onto a 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 layer of Grapefruit Grove card stock. I waited to glue until I completed the stamping.

Then the stamping… On the Whisper White layer, using the rose and leaves stamps from Healing Hugs, I stamped the background roses in Petal Pink ink, and the leaves in Garden Green ink. I stamped Happy Birthday from the Perennial Birthday set in Garden Green. The top rose was stamped in Grapefruit Grove ink on a scrap of Whisper White card stock.  I fussy cut the rose, and added some shine with Wink of Stella.  I wrapped the Grapefruit Grove ribbon around the Whisper White layer and tied a small bow on the side of the card. I then layered the top rose over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then glued the stamped layer onto the Grapefruit Grove layer.  For the finishing touch I added three Grapefruit Grove Faceted Gems on the top of the card.  

This is a sweet card that could be used for many occasions with the simple change of the sentiment.
