With Love


Have you seen the GORGEOUS bridal collection that Jerri Kay Jimenez has been posting on her blog.  You can check out the collection here.  Everything is beautiful beyond words.  She has details on her blog about how she created the roses and since I love flowers, wanted to give it a try.  My rose is not nearly as pretty but thought I would post it.  Jerri stated that she will do a video which I will definitely want to see. 

I made my rose and decided to put it on a card.  This is not a card that can go in a regular envelope.  I created the rose following her directions. You will find all the supplies needed on her blog and a link to her store if you need to purchase anything.   She tinted the middle of her roses with green Tinta ink and I did the same except I didn't add enough to give it as much color.  It got lighter when it dried.  I will be making more of these beautiful roses. 

The designer paper on my card is from the Making Memories Wedding paper pack.  A Labels Four Nestie was cut out and embossed.  I used a black maker to outline the edge.  The rose was attached with a pop dot and leaves tucked under it.  Some pink ribbon was also added.  The flourishes were cut with a BossKut die.  The greeting is from MTME and inserted into the silver tag.  A piece of lace was tucked under the edge of the embossed label.  Pretty pink rhinestones were added to complete the card.

I hope you will go over to Jerri's blog to see all the gorgeous items in her bridal collection.  Here is the link for today's post.  Be sure to click on all the links within this post to see each of the items she has created.  You will be so amazed with her talent.
