Brutus Monroe Bunches of Love Gatefold Card

Hi There!  I hope you've had an awesome week and that today is a nice down day for you!  I love weekends but I think Sundays are my favorite because they really are a day to recover from the week, thank the Lord for what he has done, and to look toward a brand new week!

I'm sharing a card with the Brutus Monroe Bunches of Love Stamp Set today.  It is a super cute 3" x 4" stamp set that has a beautiful focal image as well as 5 sentiments!   

I made a gatefold base of Whitewash 100# Cardstock that measured 8-1/2 x 5-1/2, scored at 2-1/8" and 6-3/8" on the 8-1/2 side.  The gatefold panels were also Whitewash Cardstock that I stenciled Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves through the Floral Hoop Mixed Media Stencil.  I also spritzed the panels with some water in a Distress Sprayer and then added Pearl Shimmer Mist!  Can I just say if you don't have any of the Pearl Shimmer Mist.. run, don't walk, and get some!  It is amazing!  You won't regret it!  

Can you see the beautiful shimmer??  The focal image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whitewash Cardstock and colored in with Copic Markers.  I focused on coloring the floral images and just added some very light coloring on her legs, arms, and the floral wrap paper.  I fussy-cut the main image and added it to a Whitewash Diecut that already had the "I love you bunches" sentiment stamped on it. I added some Rainbow Crystal gems and a couple of ribbon scraps under the end of the diecut layers on the lower right side and called this one finished!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
