A bouquet of roses

I've just finished a wedding card for a friend's son's wedding in a weeks time. Although the roses didn't take long to make, I had such trouble getting my layout right!!!! Wedding cards are so personal, especially those made by hand for a very special person in your life.
The brides bouquet is to be a hand tied posy of cream, pale pink and pale apricot old fashioned roses. I wanted it to reflect that and keep the card simple. So a large cream base card was made. I created a flat, wide hinge on the fold on the left of the card, covered it with a Magenta vellum which was held in place with a cream ribbon and an adhesive behind the rose posy.
The circles a die cut from cream and pale green card. All the leaves were punched and then stamped onto a leaf stamp to create the realistic veins, they were then shaped and added to my arrangement. I was pretty pleased with the result and my friend loved it. I hope the bride loves it too! I enjoyed making it.
