De-bossed Daisies for Baby

Welcome

This is what I would call a rescue card.
The background started off as a patterned paper that was embossed and then inked - the result was less than pleasing!!


I went to biff it, turned it over, and the pink ink was showing through the de-bossed side.  Perfect!! The only addition was some clear Kindy Glitz to some of the centres.


The focal point is a freebie from Bird's Cards, I painted the words with Inka Gold Gold paint, and coloured the pram/stroller with Prismacolor Pencils.  I was able to die cut the image with a circle die - not a deliberate sizing, but I was very glad it worked perfectly!


Added more clear Kindy Glitz to the dots, 


and mounted it onto the debossed paper, added a lush pink organza ribbon, and then onto the pink base.  
I loved the finished card, despite the rather shaky start.

Rescues often make the best cards Maxine. The debossed background is so delicate and pleasing to the eye. I LOVE the pink bow. Thank you so much for joining our 220th challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Your creation is inspiring and very beautiful. Blessings, Carole

This is so pretty - I really like the debossing with the subtle color and glittery centers. How great that not only did you rescue a piece that could have been destined for the trash - but you created a lovey save! Thank you for joining the Eureka challenge this week.

Maxine, that's so sweet. I love the debossed effect. I used this same daisy embossing folder on a wee make for my wee niece a while back. I must pull it out again, as it's really lovely. Fabulous card. Hugs, Wends x (My wee daisy make is here if you're curious x) http://craftykiwimama.blogspot.co.nz/2015/05/loves-rubberstamps-sensational-sunday.html
