Yesterday, I posted HERE about a great tutorial on how to make paper roses. Well, I tried it!
It was really fun.
I used a light-weight cream cardstock, and LOTS of tiny glue dots. If you watch the tutorial, you'll see where the glue dots come in.
I wanted my roses to be a little more, well, rose-like, so I twisted my paper every now and then to give it more of a petal-like appearance (clear as mud, right?).
Here is the finished project:
I used cream cardstock from JoAnns, and the DP is from a K&Co Specialty Stack. The ink is CTMH Twilight.
I wanted the card to look more Vintage, so I distressed it with SU! Creamy Caramel. I also added just a little piece of cream organdy ribbon on each corner (it just needed a little something!). Then I used Diamond Stickles to outline the frame around the sentiment, which is QKR Stampede. And, of course, I had to spray the roses to make them sparkly!
The DP was cut using my Silhouette. I downloaded a free pattern called the Scalloped Thank You Card by tiredlady47. It is from the Yahoo Silhouette Users group, and unfortunately I cannot provide a link because you need to be member to download files. (Here is a link to the Group, in case you would like to join. I found this file in New Files.) I adjusted the file to get the cut you see here.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
