Rose Border with Guest Designer, Tessa!

Rose Border with Guest Designer, Tessa!

Tessa Reed here, and I am so honored to be guest designing for the Brutus Monroe inspiration team this month! 
Today, I have a quick but elegant acetate card that is inspired by a set of USPS postage stamps, using the Rose Border stamp set. Let me tell you how I did it!
First, I stamped my image in black VersaFine ink, then embossed it with the Icicle embossing power. I then cut around the stamp 4 times.
I cut a piece of acetate to 4.25”x10”, scoring it at 5” and folding it. I glued my simple black and white embossed image toward the bottom of the card and made sure to line up the other 3 pieces of cardstock, back to front on each side of the card to give myself a space to write a message on the inside, as well as conceal the glue from the previous side.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment on black cardstock and embossed it with Alabaster White embossing powder.
I cut the sentiment into a strip, notched the ends, and adhered it to the card using foam tape. I love how quick this card came together and how elegant it looks. I want to thank the team at Brutus Monroe for giving me an opportunity to guest design, it was a wonderful experience! 
What a gorgeous and simple take on the Rose Border! Big thanks to Tessa for sharing with us here at Brutus Monroe. Please, if you want to see more inspiration from Tessa, visit her INSTAGRAM FEED!
