Blue Roses Valentine's Day Card

Welcome back, its my first card of 2019 and of course had to be a Valentine's card.  I have chosen to do blue roses, so that it would suit a male as well as a female.  

I started by cutting a card panel slightly smaller than my card base and cut out a heart shaped aperture using a die.  

I then stamped some roses from the Altenew Vintage rose and vintage flowers stamp sets, and fussy cut them out.

Once I had worked out where I wanted my sprigs from the Altenew Garden treasures stamp set, to go I stamped them directly onto the card base and card panel and then coloured them in quite simply with my Zigs.  

I also stamped a sentiment and fussy cut that out too. 

I put some speckles and spots of gold metallic paint onto the card base, after masking off the flowers roughly with some painters tape.  

Finally I put the card together with one rose stuck on the card base on top of the sprigs, then the rest either glued on or raised up with scotch foam tape to make a nice arrangement.  

Here is a video on making the card. 

If you would like to see it on HD then go to my YouTube video here.

The materials I used to make the card are:
Nellie Snellen Heart die

 I hope this card has inspired you to try something different for a valentine's day card. 
Or really this card could be done with any shaped cutout for any occasion.
