2014-02-11 Winter Birthday & SU scallop rose


This past weekend I went to a Stampin’ Up stamp camp. We made a total of 5 cards, so be sure to stop back for the next few days and see all of the projects.

To start; I will show the first card I sat down to make. A Starburst design in winter DSP. This would be perfect to send to someone with a birthday in the winter months, don’t you think?

My SU Demo also gave me this die cut to experiment with. I’ve made lots of these types of flowers and went right to work

Here is how my final flower came out. I added Silver metallic ink to the petals, jelly roll glitter pen and for the center a few yellow seed beads.

The card stock that was used for the die cut was cordinations; a very thick textured piece that is sandable. I personally think that the card stock used was to heavy for flower molding/forming. A lighter weight would probably have been easier to work with.

    That’s a really nice technique, Bonnie. At first I thought you embossed the unrolled rose, but now I realize it was the thick, textured cardstock you used. Wonderful result!

    Love your Winter Birthday card!!! And the rose would be such a pretty addition to a card if you are hand delivering or even on top of a small gift.

    Love the 360 starburst card. Yes, that does make for a great winter birthday card.
