Card Size:  6" x 6"
I made some cards a while ago (Card 1, Card 2) using the Paper Ruffle technique found HERE and I wanted to give it a go with Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose Collection paper!  It looks just like material and it uses up scraps!  As a card maker I don't always make 6x6 cards so I tend to have strips of 12x12 paper left, this is a perfect way to use up those strips!!

I wanted to dress up the ruffles with little flowers so I used the Classic Rose stamp and die to make them.  I have a little tutorial below on how I altered them.  I used the Arianna Lace die to make my border, I have a photo below showing how I did that.

Look at those ruffles!  They look just like material.

I stamped the flowers with Versamark and embossed them with white embossing powder.  I then add some light pink ink for a touch of soft colour.  The flourishes I cut apart from the leaves and tucked in behind the flowers.

Bought flowers (on the right) have that nice little green foliage behind them.  I stamped and cut a small Classic Rose in green to imitate this (on the left).

On the left is the stamped and die cut Classic Rose.
On the right you can see I how I cut each petal to make leaves, basically just make the end pointed like a leaf.

I then inked and shaped them, and attached them behind my flowers!!

I used the Eyelet Oval die to cut out a design on the small inset oval.

On the back of the purple patterned paper I attached each die cut.  I found the center along each side first and attached one there...a little higher than the rest for visual interest. I then added the 2 corners. Finally I filled in the spaces with the other die cuts.  I chose not to do the bottom because it would be hidden by the ruffles.
