flower? After coloring and fussy cutting, I cut a few of the petals down to the "pearls" in the center to separate them from the rest, then glued the edges of the adjacent petal to the back, which pulled all the petals forward. It's backed with a Delicate Dahlia die cut from Memory Box. The red die cut is solid color cs, which I stamped with a Grape Floral bg stamp in Versamark. Most of it is covered up, but you can still see a little of it.
The sentiment is actually all three words in a line, so I inked up one word at a time and stamped them separately so they would fit in the circle die cut. You can't see it in this photo, but I spritzed the sentiment with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Mist, too. It shows up better in the photo at the top of the post. I used Glossy Accents over the small stamped heart, and Liquid Pearls in each of the points.
I found another fun stitch on my sewing machine.
On the inside, I stamped a portion of a Grape Floral background stamp in Spun Sugar Distress Ink. IRL it's actually lighter than in this photo. It will be easy to write over it, but still dark enough not to be lost under a personal message.
