Floral Heart Card

I am posting today in place of Marley, she is a bit under the weather but hopefully will be back with us soon.  Today is the last day to enter the Flowers challenge here on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog for a chance to win a $20 coupon for shopping at the Cheery Lynn Designs website.  So with that in mind I decided to create some roses using the new Rose dies.


Not really knowing what I was going to make, I first created 4 roses using the Miniature Rose, Medium Rose and Large Rose dies.  Then I used Judy's Blooms and Cherry Blossoms to add more layers to the flowers.


I added Sweetheart Frame to the card front and then the flourish ends from the Victorian Romance Flourish.  At this point I realized I had too many flowers, trying to add more than one made it look really cluttered. To create the rose in the center of this flower, I used all 3 dies. I wanted it to be really full as it was the main focal point for the card.   Have you watched the video on Cheery Lynn Designs website that shows you how to create the center to make the rose more realistic?  I found I had better luck if I glued the layers down staggered one on top of each other, then put the brad through it before shaping my rose.  That way I did not have to deal with the brad moving while I was gluing the petals, nor did my layers try to spin around. 


In the picture above, the rose in the center is made with Miniature Rose, the one on the left is Medium Rose as is the one on the base of the card.  I got better the more I made.  I found that curling the edges of the petals added quite a bit to the roses.  To finish the base, I added two Anastasia borders above and below my Ribbon Eyelet Border w/piercing.  The last step was to add the Happy Birthday Peel Off stickers to a panel cut with my Scalloped Oval Little Stackers die.  Finished size is 5.5 inches square.
