Saturday was my SIL's birthday and so I was looking for something a little special to use in the design of her card.
Marlene over at Time to Craft recently posted a fantastic tutorial for making a rose using the large Vintage Vogue flower, that I thought would fit the bill perfectly. This set is great for so many different looks, from vintage distressed to elegant modern.
I teamed the lush new Rich Razzleberry with Very Vanilla and just a hint of Old Olive for a sophisticated looking colour combo:
Stamp sets: Vintage Vogue, Oval All
Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla, Old Olive
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Polka Dot Ribbon: Rich Razzleberry
Punches: Two-step bird, Scallop Oval, Large Oval
Other: Pretties Kit (Half-back Pearl)
After making the three roses according to Marlene's instructions I used the two-step bird punch for the leaves. The polka dot ribbons were wrapped around the Vanilla layer and secured at the back. The sentiment was stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink, matted and layered and topped off with a vanilla half-back pearl.
Here's a close up of the roses:
These flowers are too deep to fit in an envelope and possibly a little fragile even for the padded envelopes designed to be used with the treat cups (unless you enclose the roses in a treat cup - now that's another idea) and so I made a simple card box to keep them safe. Please pop back tomorrow and I'll share the box and co-ordinating gift bag.
