Be Bold with Colors and Pattern Paper

Hello friends!

I am popping in with a quick post about using Craft-a-Flower Rose. This die is so easy to line up, I simply could not just stop at creating just one card. During the release hop,  I shared how I turned the die into a stamp.

Altenew-Craft-a-FlowerRose-Stripe Stencil-PAF-CallaLily-EmbossingPaste-002 

Today's card is about using the die as is.

HB -001 

After coloring the die pieces with Altenew Brush Markers, I pieced them as best as I can to show color contrast and depth.HB -003

I then realized that the color of the rose is so rich and vibrant....perhaps too red? I decided to paired it up with something that is equally rich and colorful.

happy birthday

The "Enjoy the Ride" paper collection comes with rich dark floral prints and it is just what I needed.


I hope today's card inspired you...whether it's the sketch design, color combo, themes, elements or placement/layout....I hope that you fell a little spark! If you do, please let me know.

Honestly can't say which I like better. The look so very different and they're both so gorgeous.

Wonderful combination and addition of the strip to the design. Great look with the added flower.

Both cards are so pretty. Even though they are done with the same rose die cuts, they are so different. Really shows how you can achieve so many looks with the same die. You could make many cards using the same set and the recipient would see a new fresh rose each time.
The bright red rose on the second card is balanced by the dark bold paper. Really makes a lovely card. The first rose was my favorite card on the blog hop earlier in the week!
