Supplies Used

I Am Roses Products

Other Products
Silk Lace Frame (Sharon Callis)
Butterfly Flourish Stamp (Deep Red Cling Stamps)
Patterned Paper  (Kingston Crafts)
Tim Holtz Big Chat Stack (Avantus)
110 lb. White Cardstock (Accent)
Corrugated Cardstock (DCWV)
Versafine- Onyx Black Ink (Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko)
Clean Color Real Brush Pen- No. 050 Yellow, 070 Orange, 020 Red (Zig/ Kuretake)

I stamped my image with Versafine ink on a frame I cut from 110 lb white cardstock. I stamped the same image again on more white cardstock and colored both of the images using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in Yellow, Orange, and Red.   

Then I cut out the butterfly from the second image by hand with scissors and layered it onto the butterfly. I added glue just to the butterfly's body and lightly bent up the wings.                          

For my card base, I used more 110 lb cardstock to create a 5"x7" card. I attached a 4 3/4"x 6 3/4" piece of yellow gingham paper from the Kingston Crafts' Patterned Paper stack onto the card base using my Xyron Mega Runner. Then topped it with 2 - 1/2" strips of corrugated cardstock. 

I backed my frame with foam adhesive and mounted it onto the corrugated strips.

Now, here's where I bring in all my gorgeous I Am Roses flowers...

I almost always start from the bottom layers and work on up. First, I added my Holly Leaves. Next, I added the Yellow Peony. Then, I placed a pair of White Gardenias on each side of the peony and tucked in cascading tiny Yellow Rosebuds.

In the diagonal corner I added another Holly Leaf,  White GardeniaYellow Rosebud, and added a Yellow Curly Rose.

Then finally added the words heartfelt thoughts from the Tim Holtz Big Chat stack.

And here is my finished card...

These flowers are absolutely beautiful! They seriously make every project STUNNING!!

I hope you enjoyed today's project and are inspired to create something beautiful of your own!
