This is a view of the card closed. But the real surprise is when you open it up and see the beautiful roses on the inside!
Here are the details for this card.
Because of the folds on this card you will need to start with a 12 x 12 piece of Whisper White cardstock. Cut the Whisper White cardstock the long way to 5 1/2″ x 12″. Score this piece at 2″, 4″, 8″ and 10″. Fold the sides of the card in to cover the center of the card and then fold the flap on each side out.
I used the Garden Impressions Designer Series paper as the background for this card. I love the floral patterns and combinations of colors in this paper. And the reverse side has some great background patterns in a variety of color schemes. A great DSP to use for mixed color schemes!
Since I was focusing on the color Yellow for my Roses, I selected the background pattern from the Garden Impressions DSP with So Saffron and Daffodil Delight colors. The two pieces for the front sides are cut to 5 3/8″ x 1 7/8″. In the center I used the Navy and Yellow small floral pattern and cut out with a retired framelit from last Fall called Stitched Seasons. I love the unique shape of these framelits and hope there is a similar shaped set in the upcoming new “big” catalog!
Next I stamped two sets of the Climbing Roses and a few small single Roses with Tuxedo Black Momento ink pad on Whisper white cardstock. I cut out the groups of Roses using the corresponding framelit. Then I colored the Roses with the Daffodil Delight Blends markers and Old Olive Blends markers for the leaves.
Next cut out the label shape using the Climbing Roses framelits from a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I used Daffodil Delight ink to stamp the sentiment “Sending Love” from the Climbing Roses stamp set.
For the background on the inside of the card, I stamped the trellis pattern from the Climbing Roses stamp set with Daffodil Delight ink on the sides of the folds and the white background on the center panel of the card. Lastly I cut the trellis on the front of the card using the Trellis framelit on the Grapefruit Grove Foil from Sale-a-bration. This foil is beautiful with hints of color just a little different from the Copper Foil which you could use if you don’t have the colored foil.
Now to assemble. I adhered the Navy and Daffodil patterned piece on the center of the card using snail. I added one group of Climbing Roses over this piece with dimensionals. Then I added then sentiment on the lower right of the center panel with dimensionals. It is just a little crooked – but that is what makes the card handmade! I added a couple of the colored pearls from the Share What you Love Artisan pearls.
On the front right panel, I attached the Foil Trellis. Make sure that you only use adhesive on the area that covers the front panel. The trellis will overlap a little when the card is closed and you don’t want adhesive on the left side of the trellis. Next I attached the 2nd set of Climbing Roses on the trellis lining up the Roses to overlap when the card is closed.
I used Dimensionals and attached 3 of the single roses to the left side of the card.
