I’ve recently volunteered to make the birthday cards for the residents in the nursing home where I work. We have up to 69 residents at one time, so I probably should get cracking! There are also a heap of family birthdays in January, so you may well be seeing a whole heap of birthday cards on the blog in the coming weeks!
I am loving the Rose Wonder stamp and die bundle! The dies are so pretty and delicate, and the stamp set includes a host of really handy sentiments including birthday, wedding, and sympathy.
The Rose is totally the star of this card – to create this particular rose I die cut the flower from Lost Lagoon card stock and a matching piece of Designer Series Paper from the Going Places stack. I did the same with the leaves, using Mossy Meadow card stock and a similar piece of Designer Series Paper. I have been experimenting with adhesives to stick these dies down, I’m not normally a wet glue gal, however, I love using Tombow or the 2-way glue pen on these die cuts. I stuck the rose down to a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, and then inlaid the die cut pieces of the Designer Series Paper. This allowed me to fussy cut the rose and pop the whole thing up onto dimensionals. The leaves are stuck directly onto the Very Vanilla card front.
The strange patterns on the card stock of the rose was a bit of a mistake, but by the time I had got the rose assembled I wasn’t about to start again! Once I had stuck all the pieces stuck I ran the Rose back through my Big Shot, this proved to be a mistake, as my rather battered big shot plates embossed their marks into my rose! oops!
The card was just a little plan, and so I added some Delightful Dijon ink onto the Very Vanilla card front with a sponge.
