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

Instructions: Make a 6" X 6" card base from white cardstock. Cut a 5 7/8" square light orchid mat. Cut a 5 3/4" square mat from dark orchid. Using the 1" X 7" strip of the embossing folder, emboss along two sides of this dark orchid mat, vertically. Lightly sponge alabaster ink over the embossed roses. Dye the seam binding by Running the PR4 marker randomly along a 2 yard length. Place this in a sandwich bag, add 1 tablespoon of alcohol, zip bag shut and squish it until marker ink bleeds and stop when you like the color. Take the ribbon out of the bag and hang to dry. Cut a 7" strip of ribbon and glue along left embossed strip. Glue mats together and adhere to card front. Cut a 6" square of light orchid cardstock. Using the ornate border die center it on one side with the die top resting on the edge of the paper. Do not use the bottom edge of the die. Run through die cutting machine. Remove die and place on opposite side, placing die 3/4" from the edge. Run trough machine again. Where the straight edge meets the die cut edge, clip inward 1/4". Do this on all four corners. Slip die under these clips and line up with the straight edge of paper. Do this for each end. You will end up with a pretty doily looking mat. Glue this to card front. Add half backed pearls as pictured.
