I sponged randomly and along all edges of a large piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with Soft Suede ink. I ran the sponged cardstock through my Big Shot with the Mesh embossing folder. I also ran a piece of patterned Red Swirl DP through my Big Shot with the same Mesh embossing folder. I used the Spellbinders Rose die-cut to cut out the pieces for the rose from the embossed DP. I used a bone folder to curl back the edges of all the petals of the rose and layered it together with glue dots. I used two of each of the three middle sized die-cuts for this rose. I placed a half-pearl in the middle. Thanks to Cook22 at SCS for her instructions on how she made her rose - I loved the look and cased her instructions!
I ran the Soft Suede DP through my Big Shot with the Top Note die-cut and then trimmed along the dotted lines to make a smaller version. I sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink. I ran the same die-cut through again with a piece of Soft Suede cardstock and sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink.
I ran the Little Leaves die-cut through my Big Shot (twice) with Old Olive cardstock. I sponged the edges of the leaves and stems with Old Olive ink.
I stamped the sentiment in Ruby Red ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock, cut it to size and sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink. I mounted the sentiment on a frame of Soft Suede cardstock (also with the edges sponged).
I mounted all the pieces as shown in the picture above, onto a card base of Soft Suede (with the edges sponged). I popped up the Top Note and sentiment for more dimension.
