Directions

STEP 1

  • Make 6"x6" beige top-fold card.

STEP 2

  • Cut 6" square of beige flourish paper. Wrap seam binding around right side, 5/8" from edge; tape ends at back. Adhere paper to card front.

STEP 3

  • Using Walnut Stain ink, stamp Bella Rose Lattice Background onto iridescent white cardstock. Using same ink, stamp two large roses, one small rose, and one rosebud from Classic Bella Rose set onto separate areas of cardstock.

STEP 4

  • Using photos as guide, color images with markers.

STEP 5

  • Detail cut rose lattice background. Using Bella Rose die, die cut remaining images.

STEP 6

  • Using tape and Art Glitter adhesive, adhere trellis to card front.

STEP 7

  • To create three-dimensional effect, adhere one die-cut large rose, small rose, and rosebud to lattice image with foam dots. Place large rose and small rose over same images on lattice; place bud over leaves at upper left, tucking stem under edge of large rose.

STEP 8

  • Carefully cut leaves from remaining die-cut large rose. Adhere rose to first die-cut rose with foam dots; adhere leaves over end of stem with Art Glitter adhesive, placing foam dots under leaves to build dimension.

STEP 9

  • Use Bow Easy Tool to tie seam binding into double bow, adding crystal charm at center. Adhere bow and charm to card with glue gun.

STEP 10

  • Use foam pads to adhere two orange and one green brad head to card in upper left corner.

STEP 11

  • Stamp Walnut Stain sentiment onto iridescent white cardstock; sponge edges with Tea Dye ink. Die cut sentiment into oval. Die cut larger scalloped oval from brown cardstock. Layer and adhere ovals together; adhere to card with foam dots.

Tip

  • 1. Make a faster 2-D version of this card by simply omitting the layers. The realistic background image, complete with lush roses and buds, is perfectly lovely on its own!
