Welcome to the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog. Ann here with two rose cards that could be used for almost any occasion.
For the first card, I began by cutting the Penny Black Edger on the lower white top panel and again on a piece of black paper, then attached the black edger to a top white panel.
The black fancy oval was then cut out using the Sue Wilson Designs -Frames & Tags Grace as was the white center oval.
I used the Single Rose by Paper Smooches as the focal point on the card, cutting it out twice with black paper then layering them on top of each other for a thicker frame. The red and green part of the rose was made by coloring a piece of acetate with alcohol inks. After cutting the die on the red and green acetate, I just adhered the pieces with a glue pen. I added a few drops of Glossy Accents on the rose to make it look like raindrops but it is kind of hard to see.
Here's my second rose card:
For this card, I used the Cheery Lynn Designs Rose and Leaves, Sue Wilson's Californian Collection Decorative Frames Set B, and Sue Wilson's Californian Collection Decorative Frames Set A.
Helpful Hint: Did you know you could make your own foiled cardstock in any color you wanted? I like pink foiled cardstock but it's very hard to find so I make my own by using various shades of red and pink alcohol inks dabbed onto silver foil cardstock. I used this for my pink rose.
