One of Karen Burniston's new die sets for Elizabeth Craft Designs (out in mid July 2014), is the Lorna Label Pop Up. I love how it creates a really lovely big pop-up area, for you to add all kinds of decoration to.
It also comes with lots of co-ordinating dies, such as the smaller shaped label I cut from Hessian paper - behind the rose, and the white label with stitches round.
For this card, I cut an inner layer from patterned paper, and made a larger back layer from Tim Holtz kraft paper, adding some ribbon at the joins between the two layers. I also added some swirly stamping, and bunting flags on adhesive foam pads.
I wanted to have a large rose stamp, so decided to make one myself. I printed out a picture of a rose, and traced the outline onto some Speedball Speedy Carve Block, then hand carved round it for the first rose layer.
I then traced round some of the petals, and carved them for the second stamp, then drew some highlights onto the printed rose, and traced those for the third stamp.
I then came up with a couple of leaf outlines, plus leaf vein outlines.
To match up the three rose layers when stamping, I made sure that some of the grooves between petals matched up on each of the layers.
I made a simple card front, using a flourish die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, and using dies from the Lorna Label set.
