I love creating roses with the Garden Notes die sets. Today, my rose was created using the Garden Notes English Rose die set.
This is a 6-inch card. Cut a piece of white card stock 5 3/4 inches square and score around the edges. Attach to the front of the card.
Use a piece of watercolor paper and create a water colored background. Use yellow, orange green and blue Distress Inks.
Die cut the rectangle frames using the Garden Notes Frame It/Stitched Rectangle die set for the smaller frame. Use two Stitched rectangles and place smaller die inside larger rectangle die, run through die cut machine to create the narrow frame. Use the Dotted Scallop Rectangle set to die cut a slightly larger backing. Attach the watercolor background behind the Stitched Rectangle, then back with the Dotted Scallop Rectangle. Attach to the front of the card as shown.
Use the A Way With Words Unforgettable die set and die cut it twice, using black card stock. Glue the two die cuts together for dimension, and attach below the frame.
Use the Garden Notes Ladder Fern die set and die cut three ferns, using green card stock. Use a brown marker to color down the center of each fern. Attach the ferns to the right side of the frame.
Use the Garden Notes English Rose die set and create one rose and one bud. I used Foamiran to create this flower. I blended yellow, orange and red PanPastels to color this rose. I really love how you can blend PanPastels to achieve the color you want. I used a Swifter Sheet to wipe up any loose PanPastels on my work area. Die cut the leaves, shade using PanPastels, and shape. Attach the rose, bud and leaves in the lower right side of the rectangle.
Susan has a series of videos on how to create flowers, using her dies, on her Facebook Susan's Garden Club at this LINK.
