I stamped the rose on the card front and again on white cardstock. I colored both of them with Stampin’ Up! markers in Real Red and Old Olive. I cut the rose out with a circle Nestability, then cut just the rose and the leaves and stem out of that circle. I cut the Old Olive mat to fit, then cut the circle out with a smaller nestability, then embossed it with a Sizzix embossing folder. I mounted the rose and leaves that I had cut out, and the frame matting, with Pop Dots. I hope that makes sense. I’m writing this at night and I’m getting sleepy!
I made another card, too, so I’ll share that one with you. I didn’t even upload it to SCS :) It starts out the same – with the rose stamped on the card and colored. For this one, I used my oval Nestability on some vellum – cutting an opening for the rose. I saw this here on Barb’s blog. I embossed the vellum with the Sizzix embossing folder. I also cut a “frame” with Nestabilities out of Old Olive. I punched a butterfly out of vellum and used the folder on it, too. The sentiment on both is from Stampin’ Up’s Sincere Salutations and the flower is by Inkadinkado.
Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
