Aren’t those roses just stunning? I am still on the fence as to whether this card is a bit much or just fabulous! My husband says its a bit much and only one rose was needed. Let me know in the comments below what you think. Be honest!!!
I used the Silver Foil Paper and Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper for these roses! I die cut the rose with the Big Shot once in the Silver Foil and once in the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper. Then I popped out all of the pieces with the Big Shot Die Brush. Be very gentle with the Glimmer Paper. It could brush off a little glitter and we want all the bling!!! Be sure to keep track of all of the little pieces that you pop out. Then I took a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ and placed one of the rose frames in the corner where I wanted it. I took a pen and marked little dotted lines around the INSIDE of the rose frame. This was my guide for adding Snail Adhesive to the area. I took away the rose frame and filled the entire area with adhesive. Then I placed the Glimmer Rose down and started putting together the rose with the Silver Foil pieces inside. It really is like a puzzle!
You will repeat the same thing in the opposite corner with the Silver Foil Rose frame and glimmer puzzle pieces. If for some reason you don’t have enough adhesive, you can always add a dab of glue from the Fine Tip Glue Pen. I just found it to be much easier and less messy to use the Snail Adhesive for the majority of it, rather than gluing each piece in. Once I had my roses complete, I added some Whisper White Organza Ribbon around the middle and stamped my greeting. The greeting is from the Number of Years Stamp Set and I stamped it in Rose Red (stamp off once). I added this to a Whisper White Card base and Viola!!! Love it!!!
I played around with a few other looks as well. Here is a Black Glimmer Paper (ops….retired from the Holiday Mini Catalog) and Real Red Cardstock. You could always do Real Red Foil Paper or all cardstock!! I think this one is amazing!!!
And then I just had to do a Pink Rose!!!! I used one of the other Framelits in the Rose Garden Set. The border is Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and the puzzle pieces are Melon Mambo and Pear Pizzazz cardstock! I LOVE IT!!!!
