Scaling digital images

So today I am sharing another card that originated a while ago, but I finally managed to write a post about it.


Couple months ago I had shared a colored image of our Pocket Full of Roses stamp set and asked if you'd like me to create one or two cards out of it. More of you said "Single card"...





So this is what I made out of it...


I originally was thinking of creating a 2-for-1. It's really easy with digital images because you can scale it up as much as you wish. But I decided to go with your choice of a single card and use that same image to frame my card front from all sides.


The base panel is slightly smaller than an A2 card and it's made out of blue cardstock (all supplies linked below). I used Altenew Garden Rose 3D embossing folder over it to add interest and stay consistent with the roses theme.


The image was colored with Copic markers. I cut this image creatively and foam mounted it along the edges of my blue panel. I tucked some smaller pieces behind (like the small purple forget-me-nots in bottom right corner). The idea was to create visual triangles of sorts with each color.


Since yellow and pink were used on larger flowers, I picked the purple color for coloring my thinner sentiment (die cut). Using the same colors on it tied it all together. I also backed it with a white outline to keep in line with the white outline on my flowers.


Finally, a few strategically placed confetti sequins as flower centers + glossy accents on the words 'thank you' finished my project :)
