Get Well

My sister recently had foot surgery and I wanted to send her a card wishing her quick healing.  Luckily the die I ordered came in on time and I was able to use it for her card.  Paperwishes sent me an email a day after they sent my items on some ways to use the die, well I already had in mind what I wanted to do so I didn't watch it before making the card.  I finally got around to watching it after I sent the card and I did the one rose wrong, you can see the background paper behind the rose.  They say on the video to turn your paper to the backside of the paper when cutting out  the second small rose and then it will cover the whole back of the second rose.




I have seen a lot of embossed flowers that are colored in and that is what gave me the inspiration to try that look but with a die cut and use patterned paper behind it.  I used metallic paper for the die cut outline.  My sister liked the look of mirror card but the colors I had in that I didn't like the looks of with what I had in mind for this card.  The metallic looks a lot like the mirror.


Hot off the press - Rose Spray die
Tim Holtz - Kraft Metallic cardstock
Raspberry Road Design - Love lives here (background paper)
DCWV - Once upon a time paper (Flowers)
Hot off the press - Dazzles - thin line border stickers
Spellbinders - Labels Trio die
Hero Arts - Every day sayings sentiment stamp (gold embossing powder)

Hope you enjoyed your weekend and that your week is off to a great start.

Thanks so much for taking out the time to stop by and say Hi,

Connie

It is a really pretty die and I like how they made it even more useful by being able to die cut both ways. I like the background paper you paired it with, that is elegant. Hope your sister feels better soon!

Oh, my, what a beautiful die! I love the gold and how you can reverse the paper for the other flower. It's nice that they sent you an email to explain that. Your card is just lovely, Connie!

Oh, how pretty! I love the gold outline with the pretty pattern paper. That flower die is gorgeous! I also love the scallop border. Couldn't even tell you did something 'wrong' until I read your post. It looks pretty good no matter what...
