Raindrops on Roses

Welcome to the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.  Ann here with a red rose card that could be used for almost any occasion.

I began by cutting the Penny Black Edger on the lower white top panel and again on a piece of black paper, then attached the black edger to a top white panel.

The black fancy oval was then cut out using the Sue Wilson Designs -Frames & Tags Grace as was the white center oval.

I used the Single Rose by Paper Smooches as the focal point on the card, cutting it out twice with black paper then layering them on top of each other for a thicker frame.  The red and green part of the rose was made by coloring a piece of acetate with alcohol inks.  After cutting the die on the red and green acetate, I just adhered the pieces with a glue pen.  To make the raindrops, I dropped on some Glossy Accents but it's hard to see.

  1. Both lovely cards Ann, showcasing the super Sue Wilson dies. Fabulous roses, thanks for sharing the techniques you've used.

  2. Incredible rose, Ann! It looks between a lacquer and cloisonné technique! Lovely use of the PB border die, alternating the black and white. It's a beautiful card! XXOO
