Pink and White Rose Plus Blog Hop Winner


One of my favorite new dies from Joan's Gardens is the Marianne Design "Anji Corner" (LR0200).   EDIT:  I have had a couple of emails wanting to know where to get this die.  Here is the direct link to it at Joan's Gardens  .   I have been wanting to use it on all four corners on the front of a card.  In order to do this you need to have two of the corners because if you use only one, you will end up "smashing" the embossing on the other corners. This is a 5.5" square card.   I placed two dies at the top, taped them down, then ran the top half of the card back through to emboss them.  I repeated this process on the other two corners.  Doesn't it make a gorgeous background!   In the center I added the Marianne (CR1204) oval doily with adhesive tape.

The rose was created with the Super Giant Begonia Petals punch following the same procedure as in my Rose Tutorial.  The other petals are cream colored and the center petals are pink.  I added some leaves with a new die I just received from Joan's Gardens, Marianne (LR0156).  I love the delicate look of these leaves.  Behind the top of the rose I added two Marianne Leaves (LR0192).  To complete the card I layered the Memory Box butterflies "Kaleidoscope Butterfly" (98261) and "Moonlight Butterfly" (98260) and placed it above the rose. 

All the products I used on this card can be purchased from Joan's Gardens
