Vintage Friendship Card to a Wild Rose for the Alphabet Challenge

Vintage Friendship Card Featuring To A Wild Rose Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!


It’s time to play with the next letter in the Alphabet Challenge. Maryvonne is our host for “E is for Embossing Folders.” This is a really great one for me because I love adding texture to my backgrounds! I’m still playing with my new products that will be available for order on June 4th. This time I inked up To a Wild Rose with its coordinating dies, but you might also notice that I inked up my embossing folder as well!

My Secrets to Making This Wild Rose Project

  • First, I just love the To a Wild Rose stamp set! The flower has three stamps to layer your ink color with! Wow, doesn’t it look great? Using the Stamparatus made this incredibly easy to get perfect. Then, the flower has a coordinating die to crop it out fast and easy. And did you notice how our new Stampin’ Up! dies cut closer to the stamped image? Love it!
  • My card started with inking the Powder Pink ink pad to one side of the Lace 3D embossing folder. There’s isn’t a wrong side of the folder to do it to, but obviously you will get a different look depending on which side you choose. Carefully close the folder and run it through the die cutting machine. Love how it turned out!
  • As I stated earlier, inking up the flower was quite easy with my Stamparatus. Having 3 stamps, one to do the outline and two to give the depth of color for each petal, gives the flower a great look. I did the flower two time, cut them both out then did the same process for the leaves but only used two stamps because I didn’t want them completed filled in with ink.
  • Next, I stamped the sentiment and cropped it out with one of the dies from the Wild Rose collection.
  • The colors just begged for some distressing so I sponged Crumb Cake ink to all of the edges of my card.
  • Once I laid out my card, I decided to add the flower and leaf, cut from Very Vanilla cardstock, to the right side of my card and also distressed them with Crumb Cake ink.
  • My Finishing Touch was adding the gorgeous new lace trim and artisan pearls.

    Dear Debbie- what a beautiful card!!! Thanks so much for sharing your creativity. I just have one question— in what order do you use the three flower stamps? Do you use the same color for all 3?

  11. Thank you for your kind comment, Kathryn! And a great question! Here’s is how I did the flower: I did the flower’s outline stamp first in Crumb Cake ink. You can certainly use the same color throughout all three stamps if you’d like. Then, I took the stamp that covers most of the flower petal and inked it up with ink once it had been lined up over the first stamp in the Stamparatus. The last stamp was then lined up and inked with ink to get the final shading on the flower. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.

  12. Hi, Pam! Thanks for your comment! The Stampin’ Distressin’ Tool is very old and retired but I truly love it. Any distress tool you have would work just fine.

  13. Love this card! Especially how you did the embossing folder…Beautiful!

  14. This is a real beauty, Debbie. I love the vintage look the inked embossing folder gives, along with that soft colour palette. I think I’m going to have to get this set after all….

  15. Wow, this is gorgeous! I love all of the elements you put into this!

  16. Debbie, I loved your card! It’s just beautiful and giving it a touch of vintage just seem to complete the soft color combination.
