Damask Rose

Hey y’all!
Apologies for my absence for a few days, got busy again!
I’m back with a card I submitted to the latest Paper Crafts call. Didn’t get picked up so I can share it with you now!
This card took me absolutely ages to make! Despite its simplicity I wanted to get the rose exactly right and ended up making about 5-6 different ones! That’s a lot of cutting!
I stamped the small medallion from Damask Designs onto Berry Sorbet cardstock using Versamark then overstamped the rose from Year of Flowers: Rose using Pure Poppy ink, cut out and assembled with Pinflair. The card base is Kraft cardstock (the right side trimmed to match the shape of the rose). Did a double bow with some wrinkle ribbon then adhered the rose and added the sentiment from Year of Flowers: Larkspurs using CTMH Desert Sand ink.
I’m off to get ready for my weekend but would love to know what you think of this one! Thanks for stopping by! BTW what do you think of the photo? Those of you who know me on Facebook will know that I tried a new method for taking them – this is in my bath with the card at one end and me at the other!

  1. Gorgeous card! What an innovative idea about taking the photo in the bath – it came out really well. I'll have to try that one (after I have ensured the bath is spotlessly clean!)

  2. It's a gorgeous card Taheerah! Totally Papercrafts worthy! But Im glad we got to see it now instead! And I love how your picture turned out. In the bathtub and all!!

  3. Love the reflection that the bath provides! I can't believe you made 5 of these flowers to get it perfect…wait…YES I can lol!
    That Desert Sand ink looks perfect.

  4. This is absolutely lovely! Totally worth all the time you spent cutting! (Did I just see Aimes say you took this pic in your bathtub? Hahah, that's awesome, what a fab place to take pics).

  5. This is the card in the bath picture right?! Works so well!!!! Got me wishing we had a bath now instead of just a shower LOL!
    This card is gorgeous – I love the simplicity of the design which allows that rose to take centre stage. Totally worth all the cutting out, hun!

  6. Beautiful Taheerah!!! How is that CTMH Desert Sand Ink ……. more of a carmel color?? I cannot believe you made so many roses ……. YIKES you fingers must be stuck in one position. But it for sure paid off because this is SOOO beautiful!!!
