My crafting friend encouraged me to purchase Altenew’s newest build-a-flower die. This is my first attempt. I like the size of the flower, but I’m not sure if I like the flat petals to the bottom of the flower.
When the dies first arrived we went shopping for some colored cardstock. I found some pretty textured cardstock from Paper Studio in different colors of pink. I did pull out one pink from my scraps and used some Copic Markers to deepen the color on another. The dies are a little harder to determine where to layer than some of the others I have, but in the end they turned out pretty.
I decided to place the large rose and leaves onto the second largest scalloped rectangle from Gina Marie Designs. For added visual interest I embossed the rectangle using Stampin’ Up’s Subtle Embossing Folder. I placed the rose and leaves in the upper left corner of the scalloped rectangle and adhered them with liquid glue.
For the sentiment I cut the beautiful Honey Bee Stamps “Hello” from gold mirror cardstock. I thought about adding foam behind it, but decided to adhered it directly to the scalloped rectangle.
The scalloped rectangle was adhered to side fold cardbase with Simon Says Stamp Big Mama Foam Tape and the card was done.
