Rose of roses

A rose of roses Heather Telford

I have something a little different to share today. I am currently prepping for classes I will be teaching this week using some gorgeous Italian papers. Our local scrapbooking store brought them in and I was so taken with them I designed a class around them. The card shown here is not part of the class lineup but does show off one of the papers. The papers all have a cream base colour which matches perfectly with Neenah natural white cardstock. I took a panel of patterned paper and die cut the rose from it, then inlaid a natural white cardstock rose in its place. I attached the patterned rose inside the card. I double matted with the natural white plus a green textured cardstock. I don’t often fiddle around with patterned papers but I am really enjoying pairing these papers with Penny Black dies. The papers have a bit of a vintage feel and come in all sorts of designs and themes.

    I don’t use a lot of patterned paper but I would sure go for this! I love the matching rose on the inside too! Such an elegant card and not real fiddly!

    What a lovely idea Heather and the die cut you have embedded looks great in with that beautiful patterned paper, and then adding the patterned version to the inside of the card works really well too. x

    Heather, this is fabulous, and I love Italian DP from Kartos that I purchased in large sheets (it stunning with gold leaf). I use it mostly for Scripture cards. But I love how you’ve used it with this beautiful rose die (which I have). Thanks for the inspiration…it’s gorgeous! Hugs!
