Wow – I am so happy with how this rose card turned out! Does that rose not look SO REAL? So real that you could pick it up and give it a sniff? I have been working with dies for many years but still am amazed that something can be made so realistic out of paper. This beautiful 3D flower was made using the new Rubbernecker Mixed Flower Stack paired with the foliage from the new Organic Shapable Daisy and Nested Scallop with Holes. Have you seen my recent posts with 3D flowers using other new dies from the March Release? How to Make 3D Paper Flowers and More 3D Flower Making.
The Scalloped Card Base
- Cut two sections of the nested scallop dies using white cardstock and red layers 1/4″ larger than the white sections to layer.
- Adhere the white scalloped layers to the red layers using ATG adhesive.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of each red and white section and attach them to the A2 sized card base.
The Rose and Foliage
- Use red cardstock to cut two full sections of the flower dies. Note: This flower set can be made using one section of each layer but it just won’t be as full. I wanted this rose to look open and in full bloom.
- Cut the foliage die four times using green cardstock.
- Lay all the flower layers face up on the molding pad and roll and form the petals using a stylus and molding pad. Note: I used a large round stylus for the larger sections and small and tiny tipped stylus for the smaller sections.
- Use glossy accents to attach the layers together making sure to offset each section slightly to create a more natural realistic flower. Note: This flower was easy to put together. Hint: I find that holding the flower on the molding pad rather than my desktop keeps the flower from moving around while I’m trying to add each section. The foam molding pad isn’t as slippery as my craft sheet. Hint 2: I find my reverse tweezers indispensable when attaching flower layers together.
- Apply glossy accents to the back of the rose and attach it to the card base.
- Trim the foliage to fit and tuck them under the rose and attach with glossy accents.
- Cut a thin 1/8″ strip of red cardstock, cut two sections to use as decorative ribbon and tuck them under the rose and attach using glossy accents. Trim the tails of the ribbon strips.
Remember that a rose card isn’t just for Valentine’s Day – this one is so pretty you can use it for ANYthing! Check out this Pinterest link for more 3D flower inspiration.
