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

Instructions: Create a top fold 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card base using heavy white card-stock. Cut the base layer from red card stock at 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". Cut the top layer of card-stock using Arches watercolor paper at 5" x 5".

Tape the edges of the Archers watercolor paper to a flat board and allow a one inch border around the edges. Wet the entire area with water and then apply a touch of diluted Paris Blue to the upper left corner. Apply a touch of diluted Alizarin Crimson the the right lower corner and allow the two to wick into each other and dry.

Wet some reserved Arches watercolor paper and apply Green Olive to the left lower corner and Paris Blue to the right upper corner. Allow to blend together naturally and allow to dry. When dry, cut the background with a small circle die and a larger nesting die with red card-stock. Adhere together.

Stamp the birds with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It Blending Card-stock. Color the images with Copic Markers: C3, C5, C7, R20, R24, R29, R59. Cut with the coordinating Woodsy Critters Die. Adhere the birds as shown on the circle die. Adhere some white Gala Glitz to the outer rim of the scalloped circle.

Stamp the flowers and stem from the Classic Rose Collection using Versamark Embossing Ink and white embossing powder. Heat set. Watercolor the flowers with a wash of Alizarin Crimson and Die cut with the coordinating die when dry. Watercolor the Rose Stems and leaves with Paris Blue and Green Olive. Die cut when dry.

Shape the roses and leaf flourish using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Emma Lou has a wonderful video on dimensional roses HERE.

Adhere the flowers and circle accent to the card as shown. Adhere additional white Gala Glitz to the card base around the flowers using Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.
