Lovin' Monochromatic

When I first saw this "Poinsettia & Boxwood" stamp set from Flourishes, I got the idea for this card. Every time I would go to their site, though, this set was sold out. FINALLY, I got my set and made this card. I thought it would be a wonderful wedding or anniversary card. I love monochromatic cards and really like the texture and dimension of this one.
I used an embossing folder for the base, then layered the same paper and hand-embossed the word "love" with a brass stencil and stylus. I stamped the poinsettia twice with versamark and clear embossing powder and cut it out. I added ribbon, pearls, and string pearls to add the finishing touches.
Supplies Used:
Stamps: Poinsettia & Boxwood by Flourishes
Cardstock: Textured Ivory
Ink: Versamark
Other Supplies: Textile Texture Embossing Folder; Big Shot, Ribbon, Pearl Stickers, String pearls, Dimensionals, Brass Stencil, Stylus, Light Table.
