Rosette and Embossing

Welcome to Glenda's Cards

I had fun playing with new crafting items in making this card and I am liking the results! I will be sharing it in a few challenges!
Card is 5" x 7" cut from white Colorbok cardstock. It is layered with a 5" x 7" paper from my new K&Company Sweet Nectar Specialty Paper.This has really pretty papers plus some glittered papers.
White Colorbok mat measures 4 1/2" x 6 1/2". It is embossed with Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Splendid folder. Wow! These folders are 5"x7" and are get two designs for added value! I inked the paper after it had been embossed with VersaMagic Dew Drop Dixie Dust. I love the light shading of pink.

Another new product is the Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily Die and the matching Angel Wing. The doily is cut on my Cuttlebug using the white paper. Finished size is 4 1/8" x 4 1/8". Using the Angel Wing, I cut a piece of the patterned paper for the mat behind the doily.

The Rosette is a hand cut 1 1/4" x 12" strip of pink dot coordinating paper that was scored at each 1/4" on the Martha Stewart scoreboard.

Cricut Cartridge:
Cincy Loo - Page 38 Flourish Border is cut 1". I cut two of the flourishes to frame the doily.

Other supplies:
VersaMagic Gingerbread inking on the pattern papers. Pink button on rosette is from stash. Ribbon is blog candy from a friend. Small pink Recollection rhinestones are on the doily and accent some of the embossed flowers. Doily mat is pop-dotted for added dimension.
I omitted a sentiment for the front of the card. It can be used for several occasions including Easter, Mother's Day, Birthday, or Just Because card!
