In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I decided to create a card that features Guneaux Designs Sliced Rock Technique. I think the card is quite cheerful, which is what a breast cancer patient would need in the way of a card. When I was recovering from breast cancer, I thoroughly enjoyed receiving cheerful cards. They lifted my spirits.
Using my Guneaux Designs Sliced Rock Technique, I started making the card by stamping a floral image on a small piece of Stampin’ Up! Whisper White card stock. The floral image is from the Stampin’ Up! Flower Shop stamp set. Using various shades of pink, I colored the flower and began implementing the Guneaux Designs Sliced Rock Technique. You can see that I started creating the “rings” around the flower with two shades of pink and ended with shades of yellow and green.
I stopped with the technique when I reached five rings around the flower. I did this so I would have room for my heart design around the sliced rock floral design and to be able to stamp the Ribbon of Hope stamp around the flower. I used Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder for the ribbon.
To form the heart around the floral design, I placed a heart-shaped Post-It note over the flower. Afterwards, I used a brayer to apply Pink Pirouette Classic Ink across the Whisper White card stock. Then I formed the shape of the heart with Ranger Yellow Stickles. I think the yellow stickle helps the floral design to pop on the card.
For the sentiment on the Breast Cancer Awareness card, I used the HOPE stamp from the retired Stampin’ Up! Strength & Hope stamp set.
