Todays post is about a card I have made quite recently and comprises of handmade roses using dies. I'm currently having great fun making all sorts of paper flowers. Shabby chic paper roses are my favourite variety and since I have closed down my website that offered tutorials solely for all types of crafted flowers...and the recent tutorial for the Spellbinders Daisy on my SixInchSquareBlog - daisy tutorial has been very popular I have been thinking of resuming the tutorials on my blog...so keep an eye out...a tutorial for the roses will be posted up at some point.
'YELLOW ROSE' Card
Spellbinders dies - 'Standard Circles' ) to add dimension and help break up the pattern and provide an offset 'frame' for the cluster of roses.
'Tattered Florals' , Spellbinders 'Carnation Creations' and Spellbinders Donna Salazar 'Rose Creations'. All cut from a plain pale lemon paper which I then over stamped with distress texture patterned stamps (various makes) and scroll stamps using Scattered Straw and Pumice Distress Inks....and also inked the edges. Using ball end embossing tools I shaped the pieces to create curled and creased edges, then layered them together and glued to form the roses (tutorial to come soon on my other blog).
'Butterflies 8pk' along with a border strip from Spellbinders (sorry cannot remember die name...will update later), and a thin strip and bow of black satin ribbon....plus a row of three tiny gems in the top right hand corner. All dimensional elements where adhered using Pinflair glue gel and the mats and smaller delicate elements using Anitas Tacky Glue.
Hope you like!
