Ranunculus Romance – Just for You

Welcome back…

The Inspiration Photograph and Colors suggested by The Card Concept Challenge (#173) are so pretty and became the starting point for today’s vintage style card.

My creative choices were influenced by:

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Garden Green cardstock.
  • Accent Panel: (4” x 5¼”) Pink and Green small Floral patterned piece of paper from the retired English Garden Designer Series Paper pack.
  • Overlay: (4¼” x 5½”) Vellum for a softer romantic haze over the patterned paper.
  • Tag Shape: (2” x 3”’) Gold Vellum die-cut with one of the tag dies from the Tailor Made Tags Dies set.
    • Three stamps from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set were stamped on to the Tag with Timber Brown Stazon ink:  Fillagree Strip, Lille Register and Inventory Record.
  • Circle Shape: (2¼” x 2¼”) Basic White cardstock scrap
    • Gold, White and Taupe patterned retired Washi Tapes from my stash were used to cover the square.
    • The Circle Shape was die-cut with the (1⅞”) circle die from the Layering Circles Dies set and used as a background for the focal image.
  • Focal Image: (2” x 3½”) Basic White cardstock scrap.
    • The Ranunculus Floral stamp from the same stamp set was stamped with the Stazon ink.
    • The Ranunculus was colored with Stampin’ Blends: Flowers – Light Flirty Flamingo and Light Polished Pink and Leaves/Stems – Light Granny Apple Green with a bit of Light Old Olive and a bit of Light Shaded Spruce to get to a color that was close to Garden Green.
    • The Ranunculus was die-cut with the coordinating die from the Ranunculus Dies set.
    • The image was closely trimmed and the spaces between the stems were cut away with Paper Snips.
  • Sentiment Label: (2⅛” x ⅝”) Garden Green cardstock scrap.
    • The sentiment, Just for You, from the stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder

All of the elements were adhered to match the sketch and a couple of Brushed Brass Butterflies were added for a bit of bling and to make sure that “Tic” of Tic, Tac, Toe was not forgotten.

I like how this card came together.  So pretty and soft.
