Yellow Rose Happy Birthday

This is the second card I made with Altenew’s Build-A-Flower Rose Die. Whenever I’m creating roses I always think of the song “The Yellow Rose of Texas” and it inspires me to use that color in a design.

I pulled out my yellow and orange scrap draw to find four different gradations of yellow for the flowers, along with three different greens for the leaves.

This time I used my scissors to round one of the larger flat petals of the flower and liked it a lot better. All the layers were adhered with liquid glue

A panel of white cardstock was cut using a Memory Box Matinee Rectangle and dry embossed using the Cuttlebug Oxford Embossing Folder. The panel was adhered to a top folding cardbase made from green cardstock from my stash.

The flowers and leaves were adhered together with liquid glue and then Simon Says Stamp Big Mama Foam Tape was added to the back for dimension. They were adhered to the white rectangle by removing the cover paper.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Cause to Celebrate and was cut from gold mirror cardstock and adhered under the roses with liquid glue. The secondary sentiment was stamped on a scrap of green cardstock and heat embossed white, cut using a Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Label Die and adhered with a little foam tape as well. Clear Wink of Stella was added to the roses.

I love the green and yellow color combination.
