Vintage Flowers- Because He First Loved Us

Hi! I’m happy to be here today with a pretty rose card to share with you. 🙂 img_1776-copy  First I created a a background panel using a variety of Brushos Crystal Colors. I made this panel by picking up some left over color from another project with a piece of watercolor paper.img_1810edited

Then I used Altenew’s VINTAGE FLOWERS Clear Stamp Set, stamping and masking a variety of reds, pinks, oranges and yellows roses around the border of my panel. I added some leaves too.

I spritzed on some Smooch Spritz.

I stamped the sentiment with the Simon Says Clear Stamp set BLESSED.

After that I did some fussy cutting. I added some more Smooch Spritz and a some splatters of water color onto the panel. I added the panel to the card base with foam tape and then fussy cut the base.


I hope that you have a beautiful day. Thanks for stopping by!

Grace and Peace,

  1. This rose card is absolutely gorgeous! I love the way you fussy cut both layers, your colors are outstanding, your background with the Color flakes is clever and beautiful. The sentiment is what finishes it off with such meaning. Thank you for taking the time and effort to share this beautiful card
