Nichole - Prima Rosarian Card

Hi Everyone! Nichole here with a new card using the latest collection from Prima, Rosarian.

Rosarian is a colorful collection that includes baby blues, deep pinks, blacks, and fun patterns. I really enjoyed using the Rosarian line - working a bit out of my comfort zone with such bright rosy colours.

However, I was up for the challenge and wanted to give it a bit of vintage charm at the same time. In this example, I take two bold colours and hand cut some patterns from the line and make a vintage inspired card.

The card front was cut from Rosarian 6x6" cardstock with a Couture Creations label die set.  Entire card front is on foam adhesive with the solid blue cardstock also from the Prima Rosarian collection in the background.

Paper lace adds some detail behind the embellishments.  A bow was tied using cream organza ribbon - and a Vintage Trinket from the Rosarian collection was added in the middle of the bow.  Flowers are from Kaisercraft's Paper Blooms in Sea Breeze and Hot Pink

Kaisercraft Pearls and Prima crystals add a further look of elegance to this wonderful cardstock.
Doilies from the patterned paper was hand cut and adhered inside the window to give a scattered effect and add interest to the card.  Edges were punched with a We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper in Stub Cut.
Central greeting was stamped using the Stampin' Up Perfectly Penned set and embossed using white embossing powder.  Card was laid on an Inkssentials Craft Mat and edges of the card were slightly distressed using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen using an Ink Blending Tool for a subtle distressed feeling.

Such a bright, flowery, and cheerful card - it has me in the mood for Spring already!  

Be sure to check out the entire line of Prima Rosarian and perfectly matched embellishments.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
