The prompt for the Twofer challenge #18 this month is "garden" and what's better in a garden than some pretty flowers, namely some colorful roses?
I made a birthday card with tangerine roses and a get well card with distress ink lemonade roses.
I started with a SU! set called "Healing Hugs, stamping the roses in Tangerine Tango ink and adding leaves done with Memento Cottage Ivy ink. The SNSS sentiment was heat-embossed with white on black; rounding 2 corners and adding some orange gemstones for interest. The stems were done with a SU! Fifth Avenue Floral stamp and colored in with Tombow markers. I thought of hand-drawing some thorns on them, but then decided that was a bad idea as I'm not good with drawing much of anything :)
This is called a "Fun Fold" card and I found the tutorial by Patty Bennett here.
I used some SU! granny apple green card stock and matching dsp, along with the healing hugs stamp set, but I did NOT properly follow the instructions for attaching the ribbon which is supposed to be tied to keep the card closed. DUH! I'd already adhered the front panel, so I improvised and just tied a loose piece of yellow gingham ribbon around the card into a knot to hold the card closed. I decided I needed a little bit of ribbon in the top corner to balance things out, so I used a glue dot to attach that little snippet.
Here's what it looks like completely opened with a large area for writing your own sentiment, as well as a small area for the stamped sentiment.
I'm entering these into the Twofer Challenge #18 which is "Garden."
Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic Monday!
