IAR March Challenge

 Hey, Crafty Friends!!
It's that time again... time for a new CHALLENGE over at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog!!
Today, I created this lovely card using lots of coral tones throughout...

I Am Roses Products Used Used

Other Products Used
Mega Runner (Xyron)
Big Shot (Sizzix)
Big Shot Glitter Cutting Pads (Sizzix)
Tim Holtz Gothic Gate (Sizzix)
Life Changing Blending Brushes (Picket Fence Studios)
Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink- Worn Lipstick (Ranger Ink)
140 lb White Cardstock (Accent)
Coral Cardstock (Bazzill)
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Chit Chat Word Stickers (Advantus)
Foam Adhesive
Liquid Glue

I started with a 5"x7" card base made from 110 lb white cardstock. Then matted it with a 4.75" x6.75" piece of coral cardstock, followed by a 4.5 " x6.5" patterned paper from DCWV's Peri & Peach stack.
I attached my layers onto the card base using my Xyron Mega Runner.

I ran a piece of kraft cardstock and leftover coral cardstock through my Xyron Creative Station. Then die cut them both using the Tim Holtz Gothic Gate die and my Big Shot machine. Then attached the two pieces together to get a really thick die-cut.

I die-cut leaves using David Tutera Eucalyptus leaf die and blended on some Worn Lipstick  Distress Oxide Ink.

Then, I attached the leaves onto my card front using a clear drying liquid adhesive.

To build my bouquet, I twisted a couple of White Puffy Semi Rose Buds together along with a tiny Salmon Achillea Cottage Flower. I glued that over my eucalyptus leaves. 

Next, I added a White Tea Rose then two Medium Variegated Coral Red Daisies and then ended with another tiny Salmon Achillea Cottage Flower.

Finally, I used a phrase from Tim Holtz's Chit Chat Word Stickers stack that reads "the promise of all things made new" and popped it up with a bit of foam adhesive mounted on the back and placed and attached the strip across the gate.

And here is my finished card...

I love the details in I Am Roses' flowers! The creases and fold in the rose petals and the varying color tones in their variegated flowers... It's absolutely gorgeous! They look almost real!

I hope you enjoyed my project for today and it inspires you to join along on this month's challenge!!
