Pink Roses Card
By Gail Booth
Designer Tip: Place sticky notes over leaves when inking roses, and vice-versa.
- Card front: With the fold on the left, cover your card with blue dot paper. Tape 3 3/4"x6 1/4" pink tile paper onto scrap paper with about a 2" wide border around the pink paper. Tape the base layer of the roses stencil onto the bottom left corner of the pink paper and make light pencil marks through the 4 tiny reference holes around the artwork. Use the wedges to apply light pink onto the flower openings, light teal onto the leaves and medium teal onto the scrollwork. Remove the stencil and let dry (or use a heat gun to dry). Position and tape the next stencil layer, lining up the reference holes. Apply medium pink to flowers and medium teal to leaves. Use dark pink and dark teal for the last layer, letting the ink dry between layers.
- Glue the piece centered on the right side of your card. Stencil "Roses" onto 5"x 2 1/2" vellum using light pink at the top, medium pink, then dark teal at the bottom. Let dry, then tear off the top edge and Zot in place at the corners, as shown. Zot a white bow as shown. Zot on a button, then Zot sequins onto the button, vellum corners and onto the flowers.
- Card inside: Glue 4 3/4"x4 1/4" blue dot paper 1/8" from the bottom and side edge of your card. Stencil the large rose and lower leaf area onto pink paper, using the same process as on the front of your card. Cut as shown, leaving a 1/16" border around the flowers and glue on the right side of the blue dot paper. Place "Thoughts of You" Dazzles as shown. Zot on a bow and sequins, as shown.
