Floral Punch Roses


My friend, Connie (of Connie's Crafty Creations), sent me the nicest card last week! I could hardly believe that she made that beautiful rose on the front, and it didn't take me long to find the punch she'd used and order it!  As you can see, I didn't waste any time putting my new punch to work. My card was inspired by her lovely creation and by her sweet friendship through my blog!
To create that two toned look, I inked the edges of my roses with Fossilized Amber Distress Ink and spritzed them with water. I let the water work it's magic and the colors run just a bit before heat setting them with my embossing tool. By layering different amounts of petals, I formed three different sizes of roses for my card front. The biggest uses all four layers, next down - three layers, the smallest uses two.
Supplies and Tools: 
White/Yellow Cardstock, Floral Petals Punch (Paper Blossoms), Fossilized Amber Distress Ink (Tim Holtz), Circular Grid Embossing Folder (Anna Griffin), Pearls, Branch Punch (Martha Stewart), Floral Petals Die (Sizzix - for the leaf), Baker's Twine, Vellum Sentiment

Oh I totally love your flowers, especially the pretty shading on the tips, reminds me of my favorite flowers with a touch of colors on the tips, and I think your flowers would go through the mail better too, I love how you did different sizes of them too and such pretty centers, love the sentiment with them, great inspiration for me :)
