This week's challenge over at Bitten by the Bug is to use the rose cut from the Indy Art cartridge. I LOVE roses so of course I LOVE this cut and decided I couldn't do just one. I thought they would be pretty on one of my Valentine door hangers. The door hanger itself is cut from chipboard using the deep housing blade and the Wedding solutions cartridge. I cut the double hearts on shadow, and then twice again in regular. I cuttled the bottom regular cut with Swiss dots, then trimmed off the open heart on the second and used D'vine Swirls for more texture. For the roses I first welded 3 of them using Design Studio and the shadow feature. I cut 1 more shadow and several layers of the regular and blackout features to allow for layering. The top rose petal layer is cut out of suede paper from Hot Off The Press, inked, and attached at different spots using both pop dots and glue dots to give a sort of ruffley effect. I wish you could see that better in the pic. Finally, adhesive gems and a ribbon were added to embellish. Be sure to stop by Bitten by the Bug and see what the talented designers have come up with. I can't believe there are only 3 more days in January. Wow, how time flies! I also can't believe I've kept up with Jen's card a day challenge. I'll miss trying but am sure I'll still be stopping by her blog on a regular basis. You can too by clicking HERE.
