Instructions: Inspiration and step by step pictures for this project comes from: Hot Off The Press 3D Frame Card Template and here

To make the basic frame card, cut one piece of white cardstock to measure 6″ x 8″ in size and a second piece, 12″ x 6″, folded in half down the center to create a 6″ square card blank. Take the 6″ x 8″ piece of card and place in front of you, with the longest side facing you, score the frame at 0.5″, 1″, 7″ and 7.5″ and fold along the score lines. To create the aperture in the center, measure 1″, 1.5″, 4.5″ and 5″ from the second score line on the left hand side and make a faint pencil mark. Turn the card around 90˚ and then measure again t 1″, 1.5″, 4.5″ and 5″ and mark with a pencil. Join up all the pencil marks to form a square and core along each of the solid lines. Cut diagonally from corner to corner of the scored square to create four triangular flaps in the center. Create a mountain fold, followed by a valley fold along each of the score lines to create your inset to your frame. Apply adhesive tape to each of the end tabs of the scored card. Mount the frame onto the front of your 6″ x 6″ card blank. Add adhesive to each of the four flaps on your frame and attach them to the blank card to form the box. Cut a piece of white card, approximately 4 1/4” square and place in the center of your frame card and you now have your basic frame card to decorate. Cut one classic border basic die and glue across the top of the frame card.

You can watch a video on how to make the Classic Rose here

Instructions: My card is 4 1/4  X  5 1/2". Make card base and cover with a piece of the Classic Wedding paper collection. Diecut the medallion and glue it to the bottom of the card front. Next stamp the sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and diecut using the Spellbinders die; use dimensional tape to adhere to the top of the card letting part of the sentiment lay above the card fold. 

Next stamp using Rich Cocoa ink, diecut and color the rose petals(Rose Coral) and leaves(New Sprout, Bamboo Leaves). Shape the flowers and leaves and set aside. When you finish shaping the rose, use Dries Clear Glue and the Frosting Powder on the edges of the flower petals. 

This product is so unusual in that you can add a little heat and allow it to remain sort of clear as I have done on this card or you can heat a little more and it will go more white. I think it just gives a very classy look to the roses!
