How lovely is that rose??? Of course I used the Rose Wonder Bundle from the Occasions Mini Catalog!!! I am loving that set. You can see more samples here and here and here! Let’s get started on the beauty!

SUPPLIES NEEDED: Rose Wonder Stamp Set, Rose Garden Framelits, Aqua Painter, Ink and Cardstock

Don’t forget that you can Bundle & Save 15% when you purchase the stamp set and framelits together! Trust me you totally want them! I am loving them! So I die-cut the large rose framelit with some cardboard/thick cardstock. I used the piece that comes in the Designer Series Paper Pack on the back. It is that thicker cardboard type stuff that holds the paper stiff. I ran that through the Big Shot a couple times to ensure a nice cut on this thicker material. Then I popped out all of the pieces with the Big Shot Die Brush. I then laid the die onto a piece of Whisper White measuring 3-3/4″ x 5″. You can lay it on there with parts falling off or with the entire piece. Either way it will look fabulous. You will need to pick a color for your rose and for the leaves. I used Daffodil Delight and Old Olive. Then using a Aqua Painter, pick up some color and then paint in the holes of the framelit. It doesn’t need to be delicate and perfect. It just a little swish swish over the top of the template and into the holes. Some might be dark and some might be light. Sometimes your Aqua Painter will slide under the template and sometimes the template might move on you a bit. It’s all good. It will still come out fabulous!!! Once you have done both colors, you can stamp your greeting in the corner. I used a greeting from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set. I stamped it in Old Olive. You might want to set it aside to dry a little before assembling. I layered mine onto a piece of Daffodil Delight measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ and then Old Olive measuring 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″. I placed it onto a card base of Whisper White. I really like how colorful and POPy all of those layers make it. I love it and think it would be fabulous in purple or orange or pink. Oh I’m getting excited for doing more. You could even cut Black and White layers and then make them any color. Oh the options! This card would be perfect for lots of occasions as well!
