A Rosy Get Well

This trellis of Roses brings a message of Get Well wishes to someone special, from your friend, Mindy. Making the dimensional Susan's Garden flowers are one of my favorite pastimes, along with card making. So when I can combine the two, I am very happy!

Today's card starts with a background paper made by inking an A2  size panel of card stock with Evergreen Bough and Shaded Lilac Distressed inks by Tim Holtz. I used the Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply the inks through a plastic stencil, then trimmed the white card to fit the card base.

The next layer is a die frame cut from double-sided blue card stock using window and a trellis, both by Cheery Lynn Designs. They were attached to the card front with Joy! Small Foam Pads to give the card depth and dimension. I also wound some strips of brown paper twine cording, in and out between the trellis boards, to look like canes for the climbing roses.

The roses were made from the Susan's Garden Mini Petals Thinlits by Sizzix. I followed the assembly instructions that come with each die set, using the Susan's Garden Tool Kit to shape and mold each petal. Although there is no special die for the tiny flower buds, I used some of the extra petals to shape the small buds, and add them to the trellis with the open flowers, leaves, and stems. I also used the Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive to assemble the petals and adhere them to the card front.

To complete the card front, I added a sentiment swatch with the message Get Well die cut from the Everyday Compliments die from Die-versions, and Silver Baby Rhinestones attached to the corners of the window die.
