Altenew Educators "Giving Thanks" Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway

Hello, my friends!
It give me great pleasure to be part of the Altenew Educators Blog Hop today.
I was the Coordinator for the program from 2017 to 2019. Early this year, I have stepped down from this role. Currently, I am still helping out with the final workshop within the program.
It makes me happy that the program continues to grow and flourish.
If you arrive from the blog of Patty Mello , you are in the right place.
If not, come and join the fun hop for ideas and inspiration. 

For mu project, I am using Rolled Rose Die.
https://shrsl.com/2bmjr
This die set has super fine outlines and beautiful details in each roses and leaves.
You can use the entire cut out ( along with the small die cut pieces) or just the outlines only.

I love the delicate outline and decided to use just that.
Altenew-Rolled Roses Die Set-Virginia#1

Once I made the die cut pieces, I save the negative part of the paper and used it as a stencil/
I then added colors to each rose.

To elevate the design, I embossed part of the white outlines in Antique Gold Embossing Powder.

This card has minimum layers yet it offers great depth and impact.
