Fragrance of Roses


IMG_1261 This little card is a scrap of cardstock 4 7/8 x 1 7/8 inches wide and covered with distress inks in shabby shutters, tattered roses and victorian violet. The rose (1 1/2 inches) is done with Dick Blick’s Sulphite Drawing paper and covered with victorian violet with a cotton ball. The sentiment is an old PSX stamp that is one of my favorites.

The leaves are a punch and a spray i cut on the Silhouette. I should have stamped the sentiment before i put the leaves on but i didn’t think to do that at the time.

A strip of card board on the back with a bit of ribbon to keep it standing making it an easel card.

the original information on the rose and name of the leaf spray is here and here so you can print and cut by hand and the cutting file for the rose is in the right-hand column. Sorry it is not a real tutorial on the rose; i don’t know if anyone needs to have one. If you are printing and cutting by hand it might be easier to color before you cut them out, loading your cotton ball with some color and starting at the center of each petal layer, in a circular motion, move out to the edge of the petals. If you are cutting on the silhouette you could color before removing from the backing sheet. I do make sure that i color both sides of the bottom and top 2 layers but it would be best to make sure that all are colored on the back.
