Well it's Friday again which means another VISIBLE IMAGE design team post from me.
This week I wanted to make a card using flower's. I absolutely love roses so I just knew the perfect stamp set to use for my card this week. I may even have gone a little over board with them, but I love love love them!
To create my card this week I have used the following stamps...
Here is my IMMORTAL LOVE ROSE card I have made...
To buy the stamps just click on the links above to be taken directly to them, or click HERE to be taken to the full selection of VISIBLE IMAGE STAMPS
The other materials needed to make this card are...
~ 8x8 card blank
~ Memento Ink Rich Cocoa
~ Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Scattered Straw - Worn Lipstick
~ Double Sided Patterned Papers: I have used a Die-Cut & Cardboard Patterns Pad from Creata.
~ Ranger Stickles in Diamond
~ Word Brad 'Flowers'
~ Double-sided tape
How to make...
~ Stamp a row of 4 large ROSES on one of the double sided patterned sheets. Cut this strip out. Stamp a row of 5 small ROSES on the same sheet, cut this strip out.
~ Turn over and stamp the same amount of roses as on the other side.
~ Repeat the same pattern of stamping the roses with the second sheet of double sided paper.
~ In total you will have 16 large roses and 20 small roses. Fussy cut them all out.
~ Ink all the edges using the Worn Lipstick Distress Ink on the pink roses and the Scattered Straw on the others. Leave 3 small roses to one side.
~ Cover the 8x8 card blank with patterned paper, making sure a decorative pattern is just placed in the bottom right corner.
~ Lay your roll of double-sided tape on the card blank in the centre. Draw around the outer edge of the tape with a pencil.
This is now your guide for arranging the roses in a circle.
~ Use your double sided tape to attach a length of ribbon to the left of the card.
~ Use the silicon glue to arrange the large roses first to build up the garland. Then, continue to build up the garland with the small roses as shown.
Manipulate the flowers as you lay them to add some extra shape and create a 3d look.
~ Make a ribbon rosette using the word brad and stick to the top of the ribbon.
~ Stamp WITH and then the LOVE underneath onto some co-ordinating paper. Cut out, round the corners and use silicon glue to attach it in the centre of the garland making sure it is raised away from the card blank.
~ Stamp one LARGE BUTTERFLY and two SMALL BUTTERFLIES onto the patterened paper and attach to the card as shown using the silicon glue.
To finish add the three roses on top of the ribbon you set to one side earlier, and finish with a little dot of the stickles in the rose centres and in the centres of the flowers on the paper.
I absolutely love these roses from the IMMORTAL LOVE SET I think they look lovely cut out and made into a garland.
