Today it is time for a new challenge at Joan's Gardens. The theme Joan chose this week is "Create a card for a child" . Joan has created two very cute cards plus posted pictures of the two cute grandchildren she created the cards for. Hope you will join us for this fun and easy challenge at Joan's Gardens. I'll be creating my card for the challenge later.
Above is a card I created yesterday. I decided to combine a Marianne Design "Cut and Emboss" folder with one of the new Cheery Lynn "Window" dies. I first used the Cherry Lynn "window A" to die cut the window on the right side of the card then embossed the design on the left side of this 5.5" x 6" card. You have to die cut the window first so you don't "smash" the embossed design. The design paper behind the window is from the Pink Paislee "Butterfly Garden" Collection paper pack.
The roses were created with the My Favorite Things "Royal Rolled Rose" die.
In an earlier tutorial I showed you how I shaded a rolled flower by inking on the bottom of the petals leaving a white tip on each petal. Today I inked the petals on the outer edge giving a lightly tinted edge. The roses were "scrunched" up for texture then rolled. Different Marianne Design Leaves were used around the roses.
The sentiment is from the JustRite "Violette Vintage Labels" stamp set. It was die cut using a small Spellbinders "Lacy Circles" die then placed over the Memory Box "Winged Swirl". The butterfly is one from the Cheery Lynn "Mini Butterflies" die set.
