Three dimensional roses are so easy to create using Susan's Garden Notes die sets. Today I created one rose using her English Rose die set. Behind the rose are some branches of Baby's Breath.
Close up of English Rose
Using the English Rose die set, a lot of flower pieces were die cut, using white cardstock. To create a soft yellow on the petals, I brushed on Altenew Buttercream ink on both sides of the petals. Both the large and single petals were sponged lightly.
To add a light peach color, GinaK Peach Bellini ink was sponged very lightly on the lower 2/3 of the 3 petal die cuts. More ink was added to the single petals, almost all the way to the top. I wanted the center of this flower to be darker peach on the center petals. I looked up English Rose colors on the Internet. You can add as many layers of petals as you want to create the fullness you like. I added 8 layers of the 3 petal die cuts, alternating them as they were glued together. When shaping the petals, I used the Flower Tool Kit and cupped the petals. The single petals were cupped and added in the center of the three petal die cuts. The very center petals were rolled and glued at the base.
One branch of Baby's Breath was die cut using the Garden Notes Baby's Breath die set. The stem was die cut using a very light tan card stock. The flowers were die cut using white card stock. The little flowers were pressed down in the center and glued to the branch. Make clusters of the flowers on each branch to make it look full.
Use the Leafy Branch 5 die set and die cut 4 branches. Use the leaf tool to draw a line down the center of each leaf.
This is a 6-inch card. A piece of pale peach card stock was attached to the card front. I added a die cut background, that was die cut using white card stock. I have had that die for a while and do not know the name of it. Peach pearls were added to the corners of the diamonds in the background die cut.
Attach the Leafy Branches on the left side of the card front. Cut the Baby's Breath branch apart and spread it out over the leafy branches. Attach the Rose, using a dimensional glue dot.
Add a peach organdy ribbon under the rose, as shown.
This card will fit in one of the clear acrylic boxes, linked below, for mailing.
