Praying for You with Gilded Rose

Hi, Friends.....

I am here with a pretty card to share that I made with my beautiful Winnie & Walter - In Bloom: Maggie's Roses Cutaways die set.  I LOVE this set sooooooooo much.  (THANKS, W&W!!!)

I was inspired by the current Winnie & Walter Rerun Challenge where a previously released set is chosen and then highlighted by their designers.  The challenge is to make something with that particular set or other W&W product inspired by what the design team made.  I don't have the specific set, but all the floral designs made me want to get out my W&W Maggie's Roses die set and play.  I was particularly inspired by elements from Lydia's card (circle shape and open greenery) and Heather's card (outlines of the flowers and leaves) from this Rerun post.

I already had the three border strip background layered onto Coredinations patterned kraft lying dormant in my stash that I knew would be perfect for the Viva la Verve Sketch challenge.  

I layered on my doily and my roses pieces, including the outline that was die cut from gleaming gold cardstock.  LOVE!!!  As you can see, I used the negative scrap from one of the open leaves and added it to the greenery sprig.  My sentiment is from Clear Dollar (discontinued) and stamped with Versafine - Vintage Sepia ink on the circular patterned paper panel.  Can you tell that the cream rose paper has a subtle print?  This and the aqua polka dot panel are from my scrap bag.

Other supplies used include:
Fiskars - XXXL Circle Punch
Distress Ink - Brushed Corduroy
Doily and ribbon from stash

Hope you enjoyed my card.  This is the first time I have participated in the Winnie & Walter Rerun challenge.  It was a lot of fun!!  Hope you will join in, too!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

  11. Gorgeous Janis. I love the colours and the lovely guilded rose.

  12. Oooh, this is so elegant with that gold rose outline and die cut inlay. Or is that die cut rose outline placed over the background papers??? Either way, the effect is so beautiful; it looks like fine porcelain. Of course, I also really love the doily for a cute old fashioned look and my favorite part is that creative use of the leaf negative.

  13. What a lovely card, Janis! I love that you incorporated elements from Lydia's and Heather's cards in your design. Thank you so much for joining in on our Rerun Challenge.


THANK YOU so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Your kind words encourage me so very much!!!

Have a lovely day!
