A Rose is a Rose for a 60th Birthday

A Rose is a Rose for 60

I was recently asked to do a 60th Birthday card and that the lady in question liked flowers and that was about as far as the brief went - brief to say the least! So I thought I'd give my new SU! stamp set "A Rose is a Rose" a go and made this easel card. The stamp is called a two-step stamp set, which is something SU! does quite a lot of, and simply put, you have two stamps the first you stamp in the lighter colour and then the second stamp you line up (using your trusty stamp-a-ma-jig) to put in the detail using a darker ink & the result is fabulous and as roses come in so many different colours, the combinations of colours are endless!

I've used Barely Banana and Apricot Appeal and the leaves are done in Certainly Celery & Old Olive

Here's the rest of the details - all SU!:
Sentiment - Oval All
DSPs - Tea & Crumpets
Cardstock - Chocolate Chip; Whisper White
Ribbon - Chocolate Chip
Oval punch & oval scallop punch

Other - "60" cut on Cricut

I'm entering my card into Die Cut Dreams as their challenge this week is a vintage card with no colouring
