Layered Roses Card
By Gail Booth
Designer Tip: Cut pieces from the die-cuts and layer for more dimension.
- Card front: Place a blank card with the fold on top. Tear " from the top of 6 "x2" Bohemian Dreams tan text paper and glue even with the bottom of 6 "x4 " green/blue border paper (I used the lower right corner of the 12"x12" paper). Glue centered on your card with a 1/8" border around.
- Use your die-cutting machine to cut three rose sprays from white cardstock. Use a cosmetic wedge to apply cracked pistachio and lucky clover inks to the leaf and stem areas of one die-cut. Apply abandoned coral to the flower areas of another die-cut, then cut out the flowers and glue onto the flowers of the green inked die-cut, matching the edges. Apply carved pumpkin to the flower centers of another die-cut, then cut out the flower centers and glue onto the centers of the coral inked die-cuts.
- Cut one large flower shadow and two small flower shadows from white cardstock. Lightly ink the centers with carved pumpkin, and the edges with abandoned coral. Glue the shadows behind the rose spray, matching the edges, then foam tape the piece in place, as shown. Place "Happy Birthday" Dazzles as shown. Zot on a double loop bow of black and white twine.
- Card inside: Tear " from the bottom of 6"x2 " Bohemian Dreams tan text paper and glue even with the top of 6"x3" green/blue border paper. Tie black and white twine around the left end and glue " below the fold. Place "With Love" Dazzles as shown.
