Studiolight 3D Rose Card - Vicky Pedlow

Photo 1

** Please read all instructions before commencing **

 1.  Emboss the front of the pink base card using the CartUs Flower Branches Embossing Folder and a die-cutting machine, I used a Cuttlebug.

2.  Carefully colour the raised embossed pattern using a gold metallic ink marker and allow to dry. Once the ink is dry, use a paint brush and a little water to apply Gold Perfect Pearls to the inked areas - this adds a lovely shimmer to the ink. Allow the Perfect Pearls to dry.

3.  Cut a length of maroon grosgrain ribbon to 155 mm and adhere to the centre of the card using double-sided tape

Cut two lengths of gold satin ribbon to 155 mm and adhere to the maroon ribbon using double-sided tape as shown in photo 2.

4.  Cut out the 3D Die-Cut Studiolight Frames 1 from the sheet using decoupage scissors and build your flower using small foam squares.

5.  Use a paint brush and a little water to apply Gold Perfect Pearls to highlight the yellow areas of the flowers as shown in photo 3.

6.  Use a craft knife and ruler to cut out the frame and attach this to the centre of the card using foam squares. Adhere the 3D flower inside the frame using double-sided tape.

Your card is now complete.
