Susan's Garden Rose 1




Today is going to be my last post for a while. I want to let you know what is happening so you don't wonder why you are not receiving new updates from me.    I am going in this morning to have surgery on my foot.  I have been trying everything, for months to avoid surgery, but the only way to get rid of the pain is to have a torn tendon repaired.  I will need to be completely off my foot for six weeks.  My craft room is upstairs and this would be hard for me to maneuver, so will not be designing for a while.    I do have my two Susan's Design Team projects scheduled to post while I am recovering -  the first one on May 18 and the next one June 15.  I hope you will be back to see these projects. 

 


My card today was designed using Susan's Garden Rose 1 dies.  This is the largest rose in her collection from Elizabeth Craft Designs, measuring approximately 2 1/2" wide. 



 The sentiment is one of Susan's new sentiment stamps (The Butterfly is Proof).   The pink die cut Butterfly is the ECD Small Butterfly.  The background is a piece of pearlized lavender card stock that was embossed with the ECD Damask embossing folder.  This is a 6"x6" card.  I placed the embossing folder in the center of the 6x6 inch card stock to emboss, then cut strips of matching card stock and glued along the top and bottom edges of the embossed design.  Pearls were added to complete the card.

I am really going to miss my days in my craft room, but I'll be back as soon as possible.

The following products can  be purchased from Elizabeth Craft Designs:
