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.
