Rose Card Details

Good morning crafty friends,
Hope your Weekend is off to a great crafty start! I am sharing the details on how I created my Rose card with you today. I created this card for this week’s Digi Desserts Fridaze post.

Here is a look at my finished card.

I started with these dies. They are all by Spellbinders.

I cut out two of the frame dies and then lined them up.

I cut a piece of paper to back the frames and adhered it to the backs and trimmed the corners.

This is what the finished frame looks like.

I then took the little medallion die and cut off one edge on each corner of the face of the card. Doing this created a faux photo corner.

Here is what the front of the card base looked like. I added some pearl gems.

I used my Copic markers to color my image. This is a digital stamp from PaperCraftingWorld.com called The Rose Bundle DS
Here is a quick step by step coloring guide
  Please ignore the big rose in the bottom center. I got the bright idea to take photos of the coloring process AFTER I had been working on that rose Winking smile
I started by coloring the roses in with my R32 marker. I left some of the tips white.

Next, I went back over with my R35. I used this color more towards the center of the flower petals.

Third step: I added in my R37. Once again I started by adding it to the center of the flowers. I was trying to create “depth” by coloring it this way.

After going back over the red parts with my R32 and R35 to “blend” the colors, I next colored the leaves in with my G02 green as pictured.

Next, I added G05 towards the centers and bottoms to give the leaves depth.

My third color green was G07. Once again I colored more towards the enter and along the “veins” to give a strong contrast.

Finally I added in my YG05 to give the leaves a yellow green highlights. I did go back over and try to blend with the various colors. I also used my C4 to add just an extra touch of depth to some of the areas on the roses that would naturally be more shaded.

I cut my image out and added some foam tape to give them some dimension.

I cut out the Renaissance Hearts Die medallion and then adhered it to some of the same DCWV patterned paper. I then trimmed around it to create a border of the medallion.
Once I did that, I adhered the finished rose digi to the center.

Finally, I placed some foam tape under the rose-medallion combo and then added that to the base of the front of the card….and finished!

Here is one last look at the finished card.
