A Rose is a Rose is a Rose…

Do you ever try to make a card shown in the catalog? ¬†I do ūüôā ¬†It’s called “case” or “casing,” and this care is¬†cased from page 37 of the Occasions Catalog (click the catalog on the right to check it out!). ¬†Mine turned out a little bit different, but I’m just crazy about it.

Both the rose and the leaves are stamped in a 3-step process using 3 different stamps to create the multidimensional effect. ¬†Doesn’t it look realistic? ¬†It’s easier to do than I expected, and so much fun to see it come to life as you stamp another layer. ¬†Here is a video which shows how it works:

Did you notice this is a photopolymer stamp set?  Think clear, see through, easy to do the 3-step process!

The sentiment on the card was stamped on the new Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack. ¬†This is some intricately designed vellum that coordinates with the new Botanicals line. ¬†Here’s a close up of the vellum laid on top of some Pear Pizzaz card stock:
