Cards, Cards, Cards - May 29 - roses

I love the softest of these cards!!!! These feature shimmery decorative papers and roses embossed with white pearl embossing powder (Michaels). I coloured the first one with a bit of watercolour but I had to be very careful not to make the paint the same colour as the embossing. If the colour matches, your image becomes very flat. Several people in class did not colour their images at all which works very well. Others used contrasting colours to embellish their roses which worked well too. I distressed the edges of the image and cut out the bottom leaf so it could overlap the ribbon. Nice little touch! Again, ribbon is glued straight across the image and the ends glued to the back. The ribbon scrap is tied with a single knot to the front. This element is then attached to the card front with 3D foam tape. The other cards featured blue/white decorative paper with silver embossed roses and multi coloured floral motif paper with gold embossed roses.
