Roses

Hello crafty friends,

I have two cards showcasing the beautiful Rose Whispers die for you today... hope you like them :)




 
For this BIRTHDAY card, I did a partial die cut of the Rose die.  I took my card front (a precut piece of watercolor pink pattern paper) and placed the Rose die in the position I wanted.  I placed my top cutting plate at a point that would only cut the top portion of the die.  The parts of the die not cover by the cutting plate will not cut.

For this LOVE card, I die cut the complete rose and colored it.  I glued it back into place and backed the whole card front with a piece of clear plastic, which I first dry embossed with the same tiny dot folder.  

Having used clear plastic on the inside of my card, I was left with an inside panel full of adhesive showing and we can't have that.  So I die cut a second rose and flipping it over to get the mirror image, I glued it over the back of the front rose over the plastic.  I added pattern paper to the rest of the panel.  
Now, I'll be honest and say, that I'm not happy w/how the inside turned out.  This was my test card and I didn't do that great of a job coloring the inside rose.  Also the pp I picked isn't to my liking now.  I do I love how fun clear plastic adds a fun new element to my card and will definitely my doing this again.
