Hey, kids! How did you like the Nachos' projects yesterday? I still need to go visit all my teamies' blogs so I can comment :)
Anyway, on to today's card. When the Occasions catalog came out, I fell in love with the Rose Wonder suite (like a lot of people) but then after I got it, I didn't make anything with it which is a shame because it's beautiful. So I fixed that problem today!
The rose is a die cut and I'll show you how I put it together further on down the post. For now though, I got the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary:
Is it just me or are diagonal elements IN this year? Anyway, I also used the Global Design Project theme challenge:
Easy peasy lemon squeezy! And finally, I just couldn't let the Just Add Ink color challenge pass me by:
All hail the power of purple! Now, let's talk about how I did the rose.
At first my plan was to pop the rose up on Dimensionals, so to that end I die cut a circle and adhered the rose outline to it.
Then it was just a matter of moving the Rich Razzleberry pieces over to the Blackberry Bliss rose outline. The one on the left still has the waxed paper on it from when I ran it through the Big Shot; even after my mixed berry rose was done, I have an extra Rich Razzleberry outline and I can use the waxed paper piece as a mask. Triple win.
Let me tell you that I think one of the detail glue pens would have been fantastic for this project; I ended up with glue on some places that I didn't want it. And the piece on the lower left of the rose didn't have quite enough of the circle backing to be really stable, so I ended up adhering the whole thing directly to the card front, but it's still pretty if you ask me :D
That's it for me today, y'all. See you tomorrow!
