Warm thoughts

Hello there! I'm sharing a card that I made using some dies that I bought a while ago, but never used before. Namely, the mini rolled roses from My Favorite Things.


I was inspired to play with the dies after I saw Kristina Werner's card on her latest Make a Card Monday.


The Large Canvas Stripes background and sentiment were both stamped with Papertrey Ink's Fresh Snow ink. The sentiment was cut apart to fit and embossed with white detail embossing powder. I added some white faux stitching around the label, and a few Hero Arts pearls. The leaves were handcut by me.

The roses were surprisingly fun to make and I'm only sorry I didn't attempt them earlier. I'm sure now you'll be seeing a few roses popping up on future cards and projects...

Have a great rest of the week, and thanks for stopping by! I know I always say this, but I really do appreciate your timely visits and gracious comments.

Stamps: Hero Arts
Cardstock: Hero Arts layering paper
Ink: Papertrey Ink
Tools: Papertrey Ink label die, My Favorite Things mini rolled roses Dienamics
Embellishments: Hero Arts pearls
Other: Wool felt, dimensional adhesive, Signo white pigment pen
