My sister-in-law and I needed to make cards, and so I went through my blog to find a card for a sort of INSPIRATION CHALLENGE for the both of us. I went back pretty far to find this one HERE, all the way back to June 2007 !!! When you see that card, you will know I went pretty literal with it.
The color I used was Rich Razzleberry and the technique for coloring the flower is an old one, I tell you about it HERE. I stamped, embossed and cut out 3 roses. I used the razzleberry DSP and CS, with the white. My greens were certainly celery and always artichoke for the leaves and flourishes. My sentiment comes from the same set as the previous card - Sincere Salutations. For this card, I used pearls along with brads.
Here is the reason for cutting out 3 roses, paper tole. Each layer goes smaller to the top, and then I curled and bent up the edges for a more realistic looking flower. I love the way this technique works for this particular flower, PERFECTLY. Tootles, have fun and happy stamping!!
