I have read that, in many surveys, roses come out top as the nation’s favourite flower. It would certainly be in my top five but I suspect a few others might creep ahead of it in contention for the number one spot. Funnily enough, many of my favourite flowers are out in the Spring. Hellebores (Christmas Roses), snowdrops, violets, lily of the valley – perhaps it’s that I am so grateful for some flowers once Winter has begun to disappear!
Both these cards use our Tied Bunch of Roses die (SD624) and both have been hand coloured after cutting them out in white, well actually cream in this instance. But it really is pretty quick and simple to paper piece and diecut in two different coloured pieces of card – red for the roses and green for the leaves for example.
The other notable thing on both these cards is the use of our pretty corner dies. I think the more elaborate corner dies can make some wonderful additions to a card. I have made some great photo frames by using four dies close together and they really do add a bit of style to a card.
