This is a large 8"x 8" card - one of a set which I made at the beginning of the week. I actually never made this size of card before but had to make quite a few big samples for next week's launch of my new dies on Create and Craft (Tuesday 13th or Wednesday 14th - I'll post the date when it has been confirmed) and got bitten by the bug and made a few more this size.
You've probably noticed by now that I always have gingham paper in my box and black and white is one of my favourites. This time I've teamed it up with beautiful music paper which I got at Paperworks when I was demoing on Saturday. The main image is one of my Pick of the Bunch Rose stamps and I've stamped some ivy from the Chrysanthemum set as well.
The gorgeous border behind the rose was made with the Tonic Studios Butterfly border punch and the border at the top and bottom of the card was punched with the Border System and edger punch 5.
The little black leaves are just a little sneak peak at one of the elements in one of my new die sets which you'll be able to see next week....there will be 6 lovely new dies with 3 matching stamp sets. I hope you like them!!
