For the Girls-Creative Cutting Challenge

Hi and welcome to my blog, this week's Creative Cutting Challenge theme is For the Girls and I don't know what better way to a girl's heart is than with roses. So I made a Birthday card for one of the girls in our family (I know there is a birthday coming up soon for the DD and the DGD)
I put this card together with a bit of help from Creative Pointe’s Rolled Roses set.
 Rolled Roses - Click Image to Close
 With a little glitter among the petals, just makes the roses a bit more special for a really sweet birthday card. The roses cut so well that they are a breeze to put together. 

 This is what the rose looks like when you cut it and pull it off the cutting mat.
 You want to start from the inside and just roll it up
 Keep rolling
 When your done rolling it should look like this

 After you rolled it then you put the bottom under the roll and start to spread it till you get the flower looking like the way that you want it to look.
Then you add glue to the bottom and with in the underside of the flower roll.
As it sits it will relax a bit and open up a bit more.

I used K&Company Que Sera Sera Designer paper for the roses and the card base, I was thinking that the flowers may not be as stiff with a lighter weight paper and will have to try that sometime to see if it makes any difference. The pick cardstock was sitting on my craft table and thought is was perfect for this as a second background and to hold the sentiment. I used Inkadinkado circle and dots clear stamp borders with their Glam Gold ink for a border under the Happy Birthday from CTMH: For Every Occasions stamp and momento black ink. The leaves and butterfly came from the K&Company ECO-Modern die cuts pack. Used Studio G glitter glue on the petals to give it some bling. This was a fun card to do and not to hard to put together once the roses are done, the rolled roses was a new technique for me. I used the tutorial from Above Rubies Studio on how to roll the roses so it was very easy after that.
Thanks for stopping by today and seeing what I'm doing in my little corner of the world....
