Sophia's Heart Doily with Roses


As promised yesterday, I designed a card using that beautiful new Cheery Lynn die "Sophia's Heart" (DL184) doily. I used the entire doily for this card.  It is such a gorgeous die and I thought it would look great with roses for an embellishment.  


Here is a closeup picture showing the rose in full bloom, a rose just opening and a rose bud.  I was so excited to figure out how to create all these roses using only the Punch Bunch "Super Giant Begonia Petals" punch.  The rose bud looks so realistic. Would you like for me to do a tutorial on how I created these roses?  If I get a lot of you wanting this tutorial I will do it for you.

This is a 5.5" x 6" card.  The background behind the doily was embossed with the Cuttlebug "Love Language" embossing folder.  The Sophia's Heart Doily was attached in the middle of the card.  The embellishments behind the roses are the Heartfelt Creations Bella Rose Flourish.  It was die cut using white card stock and just the leaves were sponged green.  The two leafy embellishments are from the Marianne Design (LR0 192) set.  I used to use a lot of the Martha Stewart punched branches but I now like to use these Marianne die cuts to fill in areas around flowers.  You can use them "whole" or cut them in smaller pieces and tuck them in around flowers.  

Pearls were added in the center of the little hearts in the doily and in the upper corners to finish the card.  There is room to tuck in a little sentiment when I get ready to send this card to someone special.  By the way, I wanted to let you know that I sent Joan a card in one of the clear boxes I told you about last week. I put the card in the box and placed a piece of computer in the box behind  the card.  I placed the label on the backside of the clear box.  I did put shipping tape along the seam on both ends to be sure the box didn't come open.  I took it to the post office and the postage was $1.71 going from Washington to Indiana.  Joan received the card today and the box was not hurt (smashed) at all.  She told me it was a beautiful way to receive a card that you can see before even opening the package.  I know now that I don't even have to put these clear boxes in a padded envelope like I have done in the past.  If you have very dimensional cards, you would like to mail to someone special, I highly recommend using these boxes.  

Here are pictures of some of the products I used today:

 On the left side of this picture are the two Marianne Design leaves (LR0 192) and on the right is the beautiful Heartfelt Creations Bella Rose Flourish.

 This is the new Cheery Lynn "Sophia's Heart" doily (DL 184)

This is the Super Giant Begonia Petals punch used for all the petals and the greenery around the rose buds.

You can order all the products I used on my card today, plus the clear boxes, from Joan's Gardens.  In case you haven't seen them, Joan has put two new Memory Box videos on her blog that I'm sure you will enjoy watching.
