Christmas Rose

Hi All, Jennifer back again,
 
Hope everyone is well and if not here's a big hug to make you feel better.  Well today's card was made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts in August 2012 ready for the Christmas shows they attend up and down the country and for QVC.  For this card I have used their Christmas Rose Decoupage Stamp Set, their Snow Dots Embossable and of course! my favourite - Metallic Silver Sparkle Medium.   Ok enough waffling from me, let's begin shall we?
 

Make a base card from red card stock.   Matt a piece of white card onto the red leaving a narrow border of red around the edge.   Take the gold card and lay the embossable onto it and using the spatula, spread the silver sparkle medium over it.   Carefully remove the embossable and leave the dots to dry.   When dry, trim the gold card to make it a little smaller, then matt it onto the white card.

Using the oval die, cut out and emboss.   Stamp 'Christmas Wishes' from the stamp set, onto the centre of the oval.   Colour the outside of the oval with the Vintage Photo distress ink and blending tool.   Glue the oval to the centre of the gold card.

Using white card and the distress ink, stamp the main image of the Christmas Rose a total of four times.   Cut out the roses and the holly and colour them using Promarker pens.   Fix one to each corner of the gold card using sticky foam pads to give a little dimension to the card.

Add the clear gem to the left-hand side of the oval.   There we have it, we are finished.   Hope you enjoy making this card.   The beautiful silver sparkle medium does not show up very well on the photograph but in the flesh so to speak, it really sparkles.

Well that's it folks until next time I blog, take care of yourselves and stay safe.   Thank you for visiting, we really appreciate your visits and your lovely comments.

Hugs
