Suede Paper Botanical

I saw this card by Kathy Jones on the Just Rite site and loved it. All of her cards are gorgeous, so have a look around her blog and SCS Gallery!

I instantly thought the background would be gorgeous with pearl white and some red suede paper I had been hording for years. Since it was last summer, it was the perfect time to use a scan I had from and old botanical featuring red carnations.

I mounted a piece of the red suede paper onto a card I made with Core'dinations white pearl. Then I cut a strip of the white pearl and punched it with a Fiskars border punch, and applied another strip of the red suede in the center of that and mounted it on the card.

I cut the botanical with Spellbinders Labels Four, but it needed something, so I outlined it with a red Jellyroll pen. I wish the pen had been a little darker, but it matches better in person than in the photograph. The diecut is mounted with dimensional tape.
