Love Rose Card

I made this card for Simon Says Stamp's Emboss It challenge and I'm also submitting it to Penny Black's Sending Hugs challenge (even though I used a PB die rather than stamp).

I started out by making the accordion heart, die cutting the form twice and glueing it down.  I cut and embossed the red panel and then die cut the rose out of watercolour paper.  Because the Penny Black rose die is so delicate, I coloured it with gelatos before taking it out the negative paper.  I wet a cloth and melded the colours so it would have a slight watercoloured look.

I stamped 'love' on the cardstock and assembled the card, using a piece of glitter ribbon as a border.  I'm really happy with how this turned out.

Oh what a beautiful card, love what you've done with the die and the embossed background is perfect for the rose.

Thank you for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.
