Watch this video to learn how to shape the dimensional roses.

From the Classic Rose sets, you will need twelve of the smallest rose pieces and twelve of the second-to-smallest rose pieces. Stamp these on white cardstock with black ink, and color with the Memento Grape Jelly. Shape the roses as per the video and attach two of each of the roses' pieces for four-piece tiny roses. Brush the sparkle glitter over all parts of the final six roses.

Using the Classic Rose Bouquet sets, stamp two rose circles with black ink and die cut. Color in the roses with the Lulu Lavender dye and add accents with the Grape Jelly dye. Color the leaves with the Cottage Ivy dye. Using the rose circle die again, cut four out of the lavender cardstock. This time use the inner pieces of the die cut and lightly shade them with Grape Jelly dye.

From the Woodsy Wonderland set you'll need a skunk, a raccoon, a butterfly, and the fallen log. Stamp with Espresso Truffle for all but the butterfly; stamp it in black. Color the skunk with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers in GG1, GG4, and GG5, the raccoon with TN3, TN6, TN7, and TN8, and the butterfly with TN1 and LV3. The fallen log itself is TN1, GB8, and GB9, the leaves and grass are CG2, CG3, LG2, LG5, and JG3, the flowers are LV3 and PL4, and the mouse is GG1. Die cut all 4 pieces.

From the Woodsy Critters set stamp the cardinal in black and color with CR8 and CT1. Woodsy Treescape/Landscape has the tree you'll need; stamp in Espresso Truffle and color with DG1, CG2, LG2, TN1, and GB8. The "Home Sweet Home" sign is from the Wildwood Cottage set; stamp in black and color with TN1, GB9, and GG4. And lastly, the toadstool is from the Wildwood Cottage Darlings set; stamp in black and color with OR2, GB9, and CR10. Die cut all of these from their respective dies.

Cut a 12" by 6" piece from the lavender cardstock. Score the cardstock at the halfway point. Cut the purple quarter off the full 12" by 12" sheet of Classic Rose paper. Adhere it to the front of the lavender card. (Note: I actually glued the final product to the card just before adding the flowers; doing it earlier would have resulted in less warping from the glue. Better to do it early!) Align a rose circle with one of the corners of the purple quarter and glue. Cut the rose circle flush with the edges of the card. Repeat with the remaining piece of rose circle at another corner. Using the second rose circle, apply the same technique to the last two corners.

Match up the little edges of one of the purple rose circle inner pieces to the inside of a rose circle corner, and glue in place. Repeat for the other three corners; trim all four flush to the sides of the card. Glue one rose to each of the large roses on the rose circles; six in all. Glue the sign, mushroom, bird, and butterfly in their respective places. Glue the tree to the middle of the card front. Place the log over it and glue. Pop dot the raccoon and skunk onto it for the final touches to this card!

Note the subtle sparkle on the roses!

  1. This card is so wonderful. All the elements work together well and the dimensional aspect makes a nice frame for the card. It's too bad that the camera can't pick up the sparkle on the roses. That is always hard. Well done.
