Hello crafty friends,
I am sharing a beautiful, paper roses, handmade card I created for the Pazzles Craft Room. Pretty Paper Roses, Dimensional SVG cut flowers are so much fun to make. The base is a beautiful lattice svg cut heart shape. Easel cards are always so much fun to make. So here is what I came up with.

It is one of the new files in the Pazzles craft room. I started with a Black cardstock base. I then cut out the layers in various cardstock. The patterned papers were from the DCWV Haute Pink Stack. I also used the sentiment from the stack too.

Here’s the paper roses and the card closed.

I made the pretty paper roses with the layered rose svg flower file that created these gorgeous dimensional flowers. I used my McGill Flower sculpting tools and then bent and curled the petals to give them a more realistic look. I finished off the edges with some gold smooch ink. They turned out very pretty. 


I decided to make the base of the card an easel card. this is very simply accomplished by creating a fold or crease on the top flap of the card. The you cut out another layer the same size as the base and adhere that to the top half of the creased layer. Very simple and effective. I also used some foam tape to give the layers some extra dimension. I enjoyed making this card. These flowers are the closest thing to a "green-thumb" I have! 

Be sure to head over to the Pazzles Craft Room and check out the other projects by the design team. And don’t forget to join the Craft Room too!
