a rose bud


this card was so easy it's not funny! The rose bud is actually made from two bird bodies from the new Two Step Bird Punch that has just been released from Stampin' Up! The punch has the bird, the wing (which I have used for the greenery thingy at the base of the rose) and the stalk with leaves. You will see a lot of this punch being used all over the blogs at the moment.
You might not see as I used glossy cardstock, but I have sponged the all the parts. The dotty background is also a new release for the Big Shot machine, I love the perfect dots that it gives. I decided to keep with the black to help the rose stand out. The sentiment is one of the Tweeny Tiny Sentiments set which I have stamped with Versamark and embossed with white.
Thanks for visiting, see you again soon.

  1. I have seen roses done with the birds wing, but not the body! This is beautiful Julia! You did good having a solid black background and base. It works beautifully.
