Square cards with Roses

When Split Coast Stampers had a rose challenge for Clean and Simple Cards, I thought of the layering rose set that I have. I finally made two card with this set.

Layered Rose Birthday

The Rose set is called Layering Rose by Maymay Made It. I fell in love with it when it was released on her site. They make this stamp for a card kit from another company, but sell them on their site after the other company’s release. Anyway, I have had this for a few months, stamped several but never made them into cards.

I cut two pieces of GKD Layering Weight White cardstock in 3 3/4 inch squares. Using my MISTI, I began stamping the large rose, masked it off, then added a smaller rose on each side. I placed the buds on each side and the leaves as I saw places where they would work well.

The pink colors are all Gina K Designs: innocent pink, bubblegum pink, passionate pink. The yellow colors are Lawn Fawn: butter, lemonade, sunflower. The greens are Gina K Designs: jelly bean green, grass green. The sentiment is Gina K Designs Slate.

The sentiment is from a retired Paper Trey Ink set called Delightful Dahlias. I thought the dark gray ink worked well.

I kept the cards flat with no sequins or embellishments. Easy mailing is always a plus.

I just learned that these cards fit the Double D Challenge: http://daranddiane.blogspot.com/2019/06/rose-garden.html

I will post them there.

  1. Lisa, these are beautiful! What a wonderful layout and I love the small border of the same color as the roses around the edge.

    1. Thank you, Golda. On the yellow, the border is Lemon Drop by Gina K, while the lightest yellow is Butter by Lawn Fawn. I am pretty sure they are the same exact ink and color. I love the yellows.

  2. These are just gorgeous Lisa. Did you know that they qualify for the Double D challenge? I love how pretty and soft they are.

    1. Thank you! They are quite similar inks with the same formulation and many of the colors are an exact match. They just have different names, so it is easy to purchase one that I may already own.

  3. Beautiful cards, beautifully done. Perfect choice of inks for that stamp set. STUNNING, and great take on the Mood Board, thanks so much for playing along with us over at the Double D Rose Garden Challenge. Hope we see you back again soon!!
