I love roses and had so much fun creating these little flowers using the Garden Patch - Mini Rose dies. These roses are very small so it was fun creating a lot of them to climb up the Elizabeth Craft Design Trellis. The rose petals were die cut using pink card stock. I created some of them in full bloom and some are just rose buds.
The Bamboo Trellis was created using a sheet of Elizabeth Craft Designs Clear Double Sided Adhesive attached to a piece of white card stock. To make the Trellis to stand out from the white embossed background, I added ECD Silk Cool Diamond Microfine Glitter to it. You pour the glitter over the sticky sheet and rub it in to make it very shiny. To make the Trellis sturdier, I die cut another one, using white card stock, and glued the glittered Trellis over it.
The embossed background was created with the ECD Spring Leaves embossing folder. This is a 6"x6" card so I embossed the left half of the card stock, then embossed the right half, to get full coverage. The design matched up perfect.
At the top of the card I used the ECD Paris Edges die. It was die cut on a piece of 6x6 inch card stock then the embossed piece was glued below the die cut design. In the Paris Edges dies, there is a long die that I created the pink trim with, under the die cut piece. I used the negative of that die cut at the top, and the positive piece at the bottom of the card.
The Trellis was attached with dimensional tape in the center of the card. The roses were attached with Glue Dots and pieces of the ECD die cut Berry Branch were tucked (glued) around the flowers. This branch goes well with the Embossing Folder and looks pretty for a filler behind the flowers. In the center of the Trellis, I added the sentiment, which are ECD stickers.
To ground the Trellis, I added grass, die cut using the CountryScapes - Background 1 dies. I die cut the watering can from that same die set using brushed silver card stock. The little squirrel is die cut from the CountryScapes - Country Critters 1 die set.
The butterflies were die cut using the tiny butterfly from the ECD Butterfly Pivot Card. I used two of the die cuts for each butterfly. The bottom one was colored a darker yellow. To finish the card, I added corners die cut from the ECD Tags & More 7 - Vine die set. They were also glittered like the Trellis.
Susan's flowers always look so realistic; it doesn't matter if you are using the large flower dies or these mini dies. Aren't they beautiful!
