Birthday Greetings- A Trio of Roses
This week has been very busy and I did not have a chance to spend as much time as I would like in my craft room, so I am so thankful that I could design and create today (thanks to my understanding hubby :-)).
I wanted to create a card using the Fusion Challenge #1 Sketch and PhotoInspiration along with a Birthday theme for the Stampin’ Royalty SR209Challenge. I hope you will find the time to stop by both sites to check out their great Design Teams and other entries as well!
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ along with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder emboss a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock (I already had a scrap piece embossed in my stash) and the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Etcetera Designer Series Paper (DSP).
Trim the DSP, mount onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and mount the entire panel onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock.
Add the embossed Fancy Fan strip of Very Vanilla cardstock to a piece of Basic Gray cardstock along with the sentiment from Wetlands, adhere at the lower part of the panel.
Add the vertical strip of DSP with the die cut edges (cut with the Big Shot™ and the Finishing Touches Framelits™) to the center of the panel.
Create the rolled roses from Very Vanilla cardstock (see the basic Splitcoaststampers tutorial here). Punch two scallop circles using the 2 ½” Scallop Circle Punch and one scallop circle using the 1 ¾” Scallop Circle Punch, crimp all with the Crimper Tool and on each scallop, starting at the outside, cut a wavy spiral from the outside towards the center and roll up. Use Multi-Purpose Adhesive or hot glue to hold the flowers in the rolled position and also to adhere onto the DSP vertical panel on the card front.
Add the 1 ¼” Two-Tone Gray Double Ribbon bow and the row of Pearls to finish off the card.
