ID: MC Mar/14 - Roses & Shamrocks - HB card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: March 4, 2014

I've been itching to do some dimensional flowers, but wasn't in the mood to spend money on the dies... I finally just took a few minutes and created my own petal drawings and then scanned and cut with my electronic cutter... Love the way they turned out.

I'm also using a  sentiment stamp on  front and a quote stamp on the inside from  Quietfire Design


Side folded my white card and layered a piece of light green Bazzill monochromatic cardstock edge to edge.

Created the shamrock lattice layer in one of my photo editing programs and then eCut from a circle patterned green scrapbook cardstock. Good way to use those ugly scrapbook papers, since 50% of it gets cut away...

Tied a big green gauze peg bow and adhered to card using Golden's Extra Heavy Gel Medium. Went into my stash and found Tim's large flourish which I had cut from chipboard eons ago. Embossed it with various embossing powders in gold's and coppers etc.

The roses: I brayered Memento colors onto my gelli plate, (yellow, orange, red) misted with water and pulled a print using Arches text Wove paper. Misted the gelli plate and did a 2nd pulling with the same piece. Then added more red to the gelli plate, misted with water and pulled it a third time. Did some of this on the other side of the paper as well. Dried well, then eCut my petals etc. Also eCut the leaves and calyx from some scrap green decorated paper I had on hand.

Shaped the petals with a large balled, small balled and a tapered stylus, then started gluing the layers. When done I sprayed it with Perfect Pearls "Sunflower Sparkle" mist.

Stamped the quote (MSE) with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Die cut with Spellbinders "Fancy Tags 2", altering the length to suit my stamping. adhered with 3D foam tape.

Stamped the sentiment (Quietfire Design) with the black. cut close to stamping, layered onto green cardstock and then onto the card front.

as a final touch added some green pearls on the corners.

On the inside, I stamped the quote (Quietfire Design) witht he black. Stamped the butterflies (Quietfire Design) using the memento pads, misting with water and then stamping.
