Today's projects are similar, but show two different ways to add dimension to a card. I'm using the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set. Did you know this stamp set was inspired by Million Dollar Sales Achiever, Mary Ellen Byler? She wanted a stamp set that reminded her of her grandmother's rose garden.
The color scheme is Basic Black, Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green. The card base is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Basic Black Cardstock. The card front is 5 1/4" x 8" Whisper White Cardstock, scored at 4".
On the first card, I stamped the rose image twice with Black Memento Ink and the leaves once on scraps of Whisper White Cardstock. I used Paper Snips to cut out the center of one of the roses, the outside of the other rose and the leaves. Then I colored the two rose images with the Light Flirty Flamingo Blends. On the smaller rose, I colored it about four more times with the Light Flirty Flamingo Blends. Each layer of the Blends gave the smaller rose a darker color. I used the Dark Flirty Flamingo Blends to highlight parts of the large rose. The roses are attached together with Dimensionals.
The leaves were colored with the Light Granny Apple Green Blends. Then I used the Dark Granny Apple Green Blends to color portions of the leaves. I cut the leaves apart and attached them to the card front with Dimensionals.
The second card was made almost exactly the same as the first card. I accidentally used the Dark Flirty Flamingo Blends on the small rose image instead of layering colors of the Light Flirty Flamingo Blends. After fussy cutting everything, I decided it look fine. The small rose image is attached to the card front with SNAIL Adhesive. The large rose is centered over the small rose and attached with Dimensionals. The leaves are done the same as the first card.
The final steps are to add Clear Wink of Stella to the roses, stamp the sentiment in Black Memento Ink and add three Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
Two different ways to add a pop of dimension to the rose images. Do you have a favorite of the two cards?

It won't be a traditional Easter celebration with our family, but Dan and I will still celebrate. I suspect your celebration will also be different. Wishing you all a Happy Easter! Thank you for stopping by my blog today!
