Friendly Rose

Friendly Rose

I was inspired by all the paper tole flowers I’ve been seeing lately, especially Lisa Somerville’s. I stamped the large Fifth Avenue Floral image three times with Pretty in Pink ink on Pink Pirouette card stock and cut those out to various sizes. I sponged Pretty in Pink ink around the edges before assembling the flower with dimensionals.

The Friendly Words wheel was rolled along the top of the Basic Gray card (I lined up the seam of the wheel with the edge of the card). The patterned paper I used is from the Walk in the Park Occasions Mini Designer Series Paper package. I scalloped the bottom edge and added three vintage brads, using the pattern of the paper to determine their placement.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Emily peered over my shoulder and we both agree this card is gorgeous! The mix of colors and the DP is so stunning, Vera. I wasn’t sure how I could use that print, thanks for the inspiration! Love the tole flower too…
