Hi there and welcome back to my cardmaking blog. Up today we have the Simon Says Stamp Sketched Rose Wreath cards. Yes, 2 cards, I decided to do one with a new color blend combo background and one white.
The Sketched Rose Wreath set is a foil and cut die set which is very cool. You foil it all, and then the die cuts out all the pieces at once. Ingenious, who ever thought that one up – what a time saver.
The background is created with another new product from the Simon Says Stamp Diecember release, the Detailed Tapestry Plate. When you run it through your die cutting machine, it creates a pattern with little pin prick sized holes, it’s very cool. Use a strong adhesive on the back of this piece, something like Scor Tape, as the little holes make the back very uneven.
I used my Spellbinders Glimmer foil machine to foil the wreath in Polished Brass Foil for both cards.
I used Copic Markers to color both cards and the colors are listed at the end of this post.
How to create the Sketched Rose Wreath Cards:
Foil the wreath in Polished Brass onto Hammermill 100# white card stock.
Next, color with copic markers and then cut out with the coordinating dies.
Emboss the background with the Detail Tapestry Plate and attach to the top folding A2 sized white card base.
Finally attach the wreath and flowers using foam squares for added height.
Adding the Sentiment:
Die cut the Big Scripty Hugs three times. Once in matte gold mirror cardstock and twice in white. Stack and attach to the center of the wreath.
Sketched Rose Wreath Card #2
All the steps are the same for the second card except for the card front.
I used the Simon Says Stamp Pawsativily Saturated Ink Pads in Melon, Cantaloupe and Sherbet and ink blended the piece before embossing it with the Tapestry plate.
These are Simons New set of ink family, and they are so easy to blend, it’s quite amazing. There is also a light medium and dark for each color so creating an ombre background is a breeze.
Here are the Copic Markers I used on today’s cards.
