Rose Accordion cu 03933

Today we are revisiting the beautiful Our Daily Bread designs June Release! Such lovely images, dies and papers! (6/20) is the last day to get FREE Shipping! So take advantage of it!!

Rose Accordion front 03931
For my somewhat involved layout, I used several pieces of the Blushing Rose paper. It’s so beautiful, it almost hurts me to cut into it. I also used a few leftover strips (couldn’t bear to waste it!) on some of the narrow inside panels. So as I’m sitting there, playing around with layouts, I devised a little different accordion card. The finished size still fits in an A2 envelope, but might need a little padding to protect that vellum rose. I’m pretty sure rolling up the vellum for that rose was the hardest, most frustrating part of the whole card. Vellum does not like to rolled! But I wanted a delicate looking rose to go with the papers. After rolling it, I sponged the edges with pink inks, added a pearl brad center and some vellum leaves die cut from the ODBD Zinnia & Leaves dies. I sponged them w/ the bamboo ink. You’ll also see a viney flourish from the ODBD Fancy Flourish dies cut out of a piece of the Rose paper. The front panel with the proverb is also from the Rose paper and was die cut with the large inset die of the ODBD Vintage Flourish Pattern dies. I cut the very front on a deep curve so it wouldn’t cover it up. 

Rose Accordion side 03935
For the back panel, I stamped the Galilee Rose onto vellum using the olive ink and colored the back side with Copics. I attached it to an ivory paper then to the dotted green paper from the Blushing Rose. 
Rose Accordion back 03936
On the back side of the folds, I added the narrow left over strips along with some die cut borders from the ODBD Beautiful Borders dies and some fussy cut roses from the Rose set.

Julie Warner -
To stamp the darling little girls silhouette, I used a combo of inks. First I inked it w/ the dk brown chalk ink, then tapped over it w/ the chestnut brown pigment ink. The combo of the inks gave me the color and coverage I wanted for the silhouette. It was stamped directly on a piece of designer paper and die cut w/ a Spellbinders Blossom 4 die. Since my image was near the corner of the paper, I only used a partial die cut and the left side and bottom are the sides of the paper.

I used 3 other pieces of dp plus a chocolate piece from one of the dp  (designer paper) packs for the other layers and a scallop edge die to cut them. The sentiment was also stamped w/ the same ink on more of the dp and cut out in a banner flag shape. I made a quilled flower using a Cuttlebug die and added some die cut leaves in the lower left corner. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great New Year!
