I really am getting a little obsessed with the Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers dies. Today I have the Lovely Layers Rose to share with you. I have used the same shading technique I used for my peony and it came out lovely. Roses are my favourite flowers and I especially love the Double Delight Rose which is a beautiful full rose with yellow centres and dark pink edges and the most amazing scent. I have tried to replicate this rose with the colours I have used. And every rose deserves an elegant frame and for my card I have used one of my favourite frames from Heartfelt Creations – Fancy Classic Oval Frame. I have gone with my favourite style with a white on white background which allows the pretty rose to pop out and be the hero of the card.
I have created a side folding 5″ x 7″ card base out of white cardstock. I then cut a piece of white cardstock 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ and embossed it using the Spellbinders Tufted 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the front of the card. I die cut two frames out of white cardstock using the dies from the Heartfelt Creations – Fancy Classic Oval Frame. These were stacked together and added to the front of the card with foam strips. I then added a plain oval from the die to the centre of the frame.
I die cut all the flowers and leaves from white cardstock and coloured them with pink, yellow and green inks (listed below the photos). The rose, bud and leaves were assembled according to the instructions from the Honey Bee Stamps website using some foam tape for more dimension. I die cut a plain stem and leaves out of green cardstock and adhered the coloured stem and leaves to it to create more strength for the leaves and stem. The stem, full rose and bud were then added to the centre of the frame.
I stamped the sentiment from an old Heartfelt Creations stamp set – Heartfelt Sentiments in Jet Black ink on white cardstock and die cut this out using the long eyelet rectangle from the Heartfelt Creations Ticket and Tags die. I trimmed the edges and adhered the sentiment to the front of the card as shown.
To finish I have added some clear iridescent gems around the sentiment and the flower and added some Clear Wink of Stella to the rose, bud, stem and leaves for some subtle shine.
