I made this card for a friend who has been in hospital for quite some time - far longer than she would like, I am sure, and I know she would be missing her roses, of which she has many!
I started by stamping the image, from Rose Thinking of You set by Stamp Simply, three times, with London Fog ink and colouring it with Polychromo pencils before die cutting it
The three rose stems were laid over each other to form a curve, and added to some silver patterned paper, leaving some of the leaves over the edge.
The blank edge of the yellow layer was embossed with an edge EF
(make unknown, possibly a magazine freebie)
The sentiment was not the one from the set, but one I have owned for a long time.
I stamped it on a slightly darker yellow card snippet in Cottage Ivy ink.
I had first put some Versamark ink on the stamp, then the die ink so it was slightly sticky, then I sprinkled over some Kiwi Perfect Pearls to give a little shimmer to the words.
I would normally have heat embossed the sentiment, but we had a day long power cut that day, so I had to 'think laterally'.
After trimming the panel and rounding the corners, the panel was mounted on foam dots over the background
Some washi tape finished the inside - this was in rose gold, but it shows tan...
