Birthday Roses

Today is my sister-in-laws 70th birthday and we are having a tribe gathering to mark the occasion. While trying to find something for her garden I looked up Birthday Rose and discovered that there is one and it is a peachy colour. I decided to go with that colour scheme for the card I made her.

Materials used:
Bugaboo Digi Stamps – Roses Special Day (sorry could not find in the shop)
X-Press It card
deep orange card
pale orange card
designer paper
shimmer white paper
adhesive gems
Britannia Flower die
Britannia leaves die
Copic pens
peel off greetings labels in gold
15cm square card blank

The image is printed on X-Press It card and coloured with Copics then trimmed and matted onto designer paper.

The card blank is scored to make an easel card then lined with dark orange card. The matted image is layered onto pale orange card then attached to the card front.

The flower petals and leaves are die cut from the shimmer paper and coloured  with Copics. When dry the roses are assembled.

An off cut of white card is used to attach the greeting too then trimmed and edged using an orange pen before being attached to the inside of the card. The leaves and roses are arranged to make the stop for the easel part.

Finally the adhesive gems are added as shown.

It is the first challenge of the month at Catch the Bug and the theme is Anything Goes, so why not pop over and have a look as the inspiration from the rest of the team. Hopefully it will inspire you enough to join in with us too.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
