Springtime Vintage!

I didn't do this card for any reason other than my own pleasure -- I love these colors together with the Springtime Vintage dsp!  

The Marina Mist central frame was stamped with White craft ink on Marina Mist cardstock, then heat embossed with white detail embossing powder and cut out.  The sentiment was stamped on Vanilla in Night of Navy, then framed up with the flourish from Vintage Labels in Marina Mist.  I adhered the Vanilla to the back of the Marina Mist frame, then matted with Always Artichoke.  

To achieve a neat mat under an odd shape like this, cut out two of the shape.  One you cut through the middle lengthwise, the other through the middle vertically.  With these four pieces, you can neatly mat any oddly shaped image.

The miniature Marina Mist roses were made with Cherie Franklin's tutorial, available in the April 2010 issue of the Paper Crafters Sampler.
