Good morning! Can you handle another The Sweet Life roses card today? I had cut several of the rose dies cuts and didn't want to throw them away, so I pulled out some different ink colors and made another rose card. I really like using Papertrey Clear Cardstock as a card base when I think of it; it's a very thick card base and doesn't bow when I add weight to the card front. The only tricky part about using it is getting it scored well enough to fold it perfectly. For that, I usually use my Scor-Pal to score it, and then a Teflon folder to really press that fold down firmly. (I like Teflon folders better than bone folders because they do not make a shiny place on regular cardstock like a bone folder can.)
Back to the roses: I used Sweet Blush ink for my first layer, Hibiscus Burst next, and then Raspberry Fizz for the detail layer of the rose. For the leaves I used Spring Moss ink as the base and Simply Chartreuse for the vein detail. The sentiment is from Vintage Picnic Sentiments, another older set that I have use a LOT over the years, and ribbon is Hibiscus Burst Satin. That little inside background patterned paper is from a Simple Stories 6" x 6" Fabulous pad. I popped a couple of roses and the leaves up with fom tape to add some dimension to the card front.
I will have several Papertrey Ink release projects for you early Wednesday morning. Thanks for visiting!
