Good Morning. As you know, I love creating roses with Susan's die sets. Today I have a pretty floribunda rose on an embossed folder.
This i a 6x6 inch card. For the background, I used the Altenew Gentle Butterfly 3-D embossing folder to emboss a light green metallic piece of card stock. Once it was embossed, I used a craft sanding block to rub off some of the metallic, leaving the design white. Using a Scor-Pal, an 1/8th inch line was scored around the edges of this metallic piece.
Using Susan's Floribunda Rose die set, one rose was die cut using Susan's Specialty Cardstock. The petals and leaves were colored by using the Waffle Flower Media Mat and Blending Brushes to brush on two shades of pink ink. They were shaped using Susan's Flower Tool Kit, then assembled using Bearly Art Glue.
The Foliage & Ladybug die set was used to die cut the leafy branches. Small white Styrofoam balls were used for the berries. They were glued on the leafy branches using Bearly Art Glue. Once dry, a black fine tip pen was used to push down on the top of each berry.
One of the stamps from Susan's Through The Garden Gate Stamp Set was used for the sentiment. It was die cut using the Spellbinders A2-Mattic Basics A die set. It was attached using dimensional foam tabs.
Using the 3-D embossing folder on metallic cardstock, and sanding off some of the raised portion, was a fun technique and a beautiful background for the pretty rose.
