Ruby Red Roses


Card/Paper: Whisper White, Ruby Red, Holiday Treasures designer paper
Ink: Ruby Red, Old Olive
Stamps: A Rose is a Rose, Sincere Salutations
Card Size: 15cm x 10.5cm (approx 4" x 6")


This is the card we made at our stamper's ten meeting yesterday evening. It uses the gorgeous A Rose is a Rose two step stamp set.

Using the rose set, and my Stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped the individual flowers and leaves onto a piece of Whisper White card stock, and then cut around each piece leaving a very small border of white. The background for the flowers is made from a piece of the designer paper matted on to Ruby Red card stock, with a piece of Whisper White on top. Then the lines of holes were pricked through all three layers using the Stampin' Up! mat pack. The greeting was stamped in Old Olive, using a Stamp-a-ma-jig. All three layers had the bottom right corner shaped with the corner rounder before sticking them together. Everything mounted onto a Whisper White card base. Then I played around with the arrangement of the leaves and flowers before gluing them onto the card. The large rose is attached using Stampin' Dimensionals.
