Paper Rose Collage Card Video
This project is really fun to do - switch up the colors and composition to make it your own - but no matter how you create it, you'll enjoy putting together all of the elements to create something beautiful. Enjoy the video below to learn how I did mine!
I've been wanting to make some dies that used a quilling tool for awhile now - and thought that they would fit in perfectly with our Valentine's program. I haven't picked up a quilling tool since I worked at a stamp store in the 1990's, but it's just as easy as ever - and so much fun to do!
I used the Pinwheel Posie (98270), the Small Pinwheel Posie (98271) and the Scalloped Posie (98269) to create the flowers on the project - the dies cut out spirals of paper, which you twist into roses with the quilling tool to make your "paper roses". I included photos of what the flowers will look like right on the packaging - just a simple twist of paper and you get a terrific effect!
I also created some more of my popular matching dies - in this case the Vivienne Butterfly (98265) and the coordinating Darla Butterfly (98264). These layer together (as you can see in the photo above) and give the butterfly a gentle layered effect.
The project even includes the Fringe Circle die (98268) - it makes a great layer to put the "paper roses" on top of - as you can see in the video.
I used one of my older dies - the Blank Ticket die (98213) to cut out one of my newest stamp images - the G1857 Chrysanthemum frame.
The Blank Ticket die positions perfectly over the stamped image (watch the video to learn about positioning) to cut it out in seconds!
I think I've been missing the warm weather a little - we've been harvesting kale and arugula from our winter garden for salads at dinner, and I've been thinking about flowers and butterflies every time I go out there to get some. This project gave me the opportunity to make my own paper flower garden - and now you can too!
