ID: MC Jan16 - Heirloom Roses - ECD Happy Birthday - A Bit Of Fragrance card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: January 30, 2016

I was really in a mood to do some die cutting and making a slightly more vintage type card. I love those heirloom roses... colored with Color Burst "Alizarin Crimson" and a touch of "Merlot"; the inside swirl with the Crimson and "Lemon Yellow", partially dried and then sprayed with Perfect Pearls "Sunflower Sparkle", dried, tooled and assembled.

One of the NEWEST "A Way With Words" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs ("Happy Birthday"), designed by Suzanne Cannon (also available HERE). 

I'm also using a quote stamp  from Quietfire Design  

("Nature Quote Marks A Bit of Fragrance..." 7pce set);


Side folded my white card. Layered a piece of mango cardstock.

Die cut the frame (Spellbinders "Heirloom Rectangle") from white cardstock, sponged a touch of Distress "Candied Apple" around the edges and adhered to card front.


Die cut the inner layer, stamped the quote using the candy and embossed by jumping some clear embossing powder and then some "Queen's Gold" embossing powder. Hit the edges of the die cut with the red sponge and embossed with the Gold. Adhered to card.

Adhered a piece of white lace on the diagonal, then a sage green embroidered lace and a piece of salmon narrow ribbon.

Die cut the "Happy Birthday" from white and mango cardstock, adhering both layers together slightly off set, then on to card edge. Added some Ranger "Ice Crystals" glitter glue sparingly to the letters.

Adhered all my flower and leaf elements. (Die-Namics "Hybrid Heirloom Roses"); (Memory Box "Bamboo Shoots"); (Creative Expressions "Maiden Head Ferns").

As a final touch added some salmon toned half pearls and a couple diamond rhinestones.
