Start with a piece of vanilla measuring 7" x 10", and score it at 5". Use the single rose bud stamp from the Bold Bella Rose set to stamp randomly around the front of the card using the distress ink.

Vertical Decoration

Mount a 2" x 7" piece of patterned paper on a strip of gold metallic paper measuring 2 1/4" x 7". Use the double-edged punch to create a strip 7" long from the gold metallic paper. Mount the punched strip to back of one long side of the vertical decoration. Mount a strip of ribbon at the opposite side of the vertical decoration. Mount the entire stack to the right side of the card front.


Cut and emboss a gold label, and a vanilla paper, using the Label 4 dies. Stamp the sentiment on the vanilla label using distress ink. Mount the vanilla label on the gold label, and mount it on the front over the card.


Stamp one rose on vanilla cardstock using the distress ink. Cut it out using the matching Bella Rose die. For the second rose, mount a piece of Sticky Paper on vanilla cardstock, and cover in microfine glitter. The stamp the rose again on the glittered paper, using the distress ink, and cut it out with the matching die. Mount the plain rose above the sentiment on the card, and the glittered rose just to the left, over the plain rose.

Final Touches

Tie a triple loop bow in matching ribbon, and mount it over the rose stems and above the sentiment. Add 3 gold pearls in the lower right corner of the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
