Watch this video to learn how to create dimensional roses with the Classic Rose Collection.

Instructions: My card size is 6" X 6". I made the card base using watercolor paper because of the weight and stability. Cut a piece of the paper collection and using the distressing tool, distress the edges. I then used Dusty Concord Distress ink to ink the curled edges.

Next I cut a piece of seam binding and wet it then I applied some of the Sage ink to my craft mat and spritzed with water. Then I ran my seam binding in the ink and water until I am happy with the amount of color in the seam binding. Scrunch the seam binding and set it aside to dry.

Using a lighter weight watercolor paper, stamp and cut out the flower petals and leaves. Color with Dusty concord and Sage Shadow ink and let dry. You can use your heat gun for this as it helps to set the color. Once dry we are going to spritz with water and begin the process of shaping the petals. When making your roses you might like to follow along in this video with Emma Lou about shaping different flowers: Set them aside to dry. When the petals are dry glue them together to form the flowers and add the prills that have been colored with the green ink.

Next I stamped my sentiment and used the label die to die cut the shape. While still in the die I used a cotton ball swirled in Dusty Concord ink and lightly applied color to the label. Use a light hand as you can always apply more color. Glue down the half pearls and use dimensional tape to apply to the card front. Tie a bow and glue down; I also tied little knots in the ends of the seam binding just to give a different feel to the bow. Now start tucking the flowers and leaves around the bow and the sentiment. Once you are happy with their placement, glue them down.
