You should have arrived here from Jennifer’s McGuire blog. If you want to start the blog hop from the beginning and read all the details please visit the Altenew blog here.

I am sharing two cards using the Rose Filament die set. My sentiments are cut outs from the Script Words die set. I just love their design and all the different ways they can be used.

card 1

For my first card I created a background pattern out of the rose cut outs. I chose to go with gold as I wanted to create an elegant looking card perfect for weddings and anniversaries. And I think it would look beautiful if you go white on white and let the dimension do the job!

here is a closer look

Card 2

Now on a totally different idea. For this card I am using the rose outline but also all the little inside pieces. I inked up everything in different shades of color to make sure that the rose doesn’t look flat.

I love the size of the rose since it makes the perfect focal point on a card. Combine it with any of the Script Words and you have a lovely card.
