Merci Beacoup Card by Therese

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Therese has created a lovely card to share today.
I hope you enjoy it.
Love Therese's choice of colours & I think the card is just gorgeous!
I am also lovin' these new Stampendous Jumbo stamps, they are so versatile - great for a layout or a card or even a home decor project!

1.      Fold a white card base 280mm x 140mm in half.  Cut Coffee cardstock 110mm x 110mm and adhere this to the centre of the card.
2.      Cut Coffee cardstock 100mm x 100mm and emboss this with the Snow Cap Folder through the Bigshot.  Adhere this to the centre of the panel with double sided tape.
3.      Wrap the brown satin ribbon around the card front, just below the centre and affix with the join on the front of the card.  Create a bow using the Bow Easy (it really is easy!) and use a strong Glue Dot to attach it to the right on the ribbon.
4.      Use the antistatic pad prior to stamping the rose image three times in VersaMark ink on Xpress It Blending Cardstock.  Emboss this in white using your heat tool.  Use your Blending Tool to colour the images, mostly using Spun Sugar and then highlight with Fired Brick. 
5.      Fussy cut the rose in varying sizes and layer with foam dimensionals.  Adhere this to the left side of the card using foam dimensionals.
6.      Create a tag by cutting white cardstock 15mm x 40mm.  Colour this with the blending tool using the distress inks and stamp the sentiment in Rich Cocoa.  Adhere this with a glue dot at the base of the bow.
