I'm stopping by to announce the winner of the SOLD OUT Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit and share a set of cards I made with the Altenew Rose Flurries Dies.
These cards were so fun to make and the roses were a great way to use up scraps of cardstock.
First I gathered 4 shades of each colour I was working with for the flowers and die cut the pieces so when stacked they would gradually go from light to dark or from dark to light. I did the same with the leaves using 2 colours for each leaf. There were a few shades that I didn't have cardstock for so I inked up white cardstock with either an ink pad or Copic Markers before diecutting. For the cards themselves I chose a coordinating background patterned paper to cover my notecards with. I diecut some subtle black and white patterned papers with the rectangle from Simon's Bundle of Stitches Dies and matted these pieces with coloured cardstock. I assembled everything together and added stamped sentiments from Simon's Messages For Everyday Stamp Set.
As a side note, I used coloured Sharpies on the backs of the Altenew dies themselves to keep track of which dies were for which flowers and to number the order of the layers.

Such a great idea to water color the embossed pattern. Your card is gorgeous.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
