Today I created a card with a new die I have been so excited to use. You can get this Marianne Design "Anja Corner" (LR0200) die from Joan's Gardens. The design paper I used is FabScraps "High Tea Floral" (C41 001A). You can purchase this gorgeous design paper from Joan's Gardens. I love the purple roses in this paper so decided to try and create one of my roses using the Punch Bunch Super Giant Begonia Petals punch to match it. The petals were punched using an off white lightweight card stock and sponged with Tim Holtz "Seedless Preserves" Distress Ink then lightly sponged with "Spun Sugar" Distress Ink to lightly blend the colors so they matched the roses in the design paper.
The leaves and flourishes in the design paper are a Sage Green so I used a piece of pearlized sage green card stock to die cut the Marianne Design "Anja Corner". I wanted to cut the design paper off right below the beautiful embossed corner, so I die cut the design paper and the card stock at the same time in order to match the corners. I then used scissors to cut around the bottom edge of the embossing and trimmed off a 1/4" border all the way around the design paper. These pieces were attached to a "Sand" colored 5.5" card. A string of pearls was added along the cut edge of the design paper.
I made a new discovery today that I am excited to tell you about tomorrow. I found a new tool in my craft things that made it very easy to shape my rose and create the rosebud. Be sure to come back tomorrow and I will have a tutorial showing you all the uses I found for this "new" tool. The rose was created like the directions in my Rose tutorial. The bud was created a little different and I will explain that tomorrow. I used the Spellbinder Leaves and one of the Marianne "leaves" (LR0192) under the rose. The sentiment is from the "My Favorite Things" Die-namics Polka Dot Greetings. It was die cut with a Spellbinders Tag. I used "Seedless Preserves" Distress Ink to stamp the sentiment.
