A Rose is a Rose Shadow Box Card

I love roses and love the new Bella Rose series of products and especially this new A Rose is a Rose stamp set. Chocolate chip and the new Pink Pirouette is a favorite color combination of mine, and the Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon is the perfect finish.

Stampin' Up! Products Used:

  • A Rose is a Rose stamp set
  • Chocolate Chip card stock
  • Bella Rose Designer Series Paper
  • Riding Hood Red Classic Ink
  • Pink Pirouette Classic Ink
  • Chocolate Chip Classic Ink
  • Kiwi Kiss Classic Ink
  • Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon
  • Scallop Edge punch
  • Versa Mark Pad
  • Clear Embossing Powder
  • Heat Gun
  • Mini Glue Dots
  • SNAIL Adhesive
  1. Cut one piece of 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 Chocolate Chip and one of the pink patterned paper from the Bella Rose designer series pack.

  2. On both pieces, score 1/2 inch and then at 1 inch on either side. See this tutorial on how to then fold it and make is pop-out: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ee/index.php/resources/tutorials/shadow_box_card/

  3. I used the Bella Toile background stamp on the Chocolate Chip card stock with Clear Embossing Powder. For more on heat embossing, visit: http://www.stampinup.com/us/enu/4287.asp

  4. Using my Creative Memories circle cutting system, I cut a whole in the middle of the Chocolate Chip piece of cardstock.

  5. Using the A Rose is a Rose stamp set, I created the inside (Pink Pirouette card stock) using two-step stamping. For more info on 2-step stamping, visit: http://www.stampinup.com/us/enu/4284.asp

  6. First I stamped the rose, solid image in pink although it can hardly be seen.

  7. Then stamped the accent, highlighted image for the rose in red and rock-n-rolled (http://www.stampinup.com/us/enu/4290.asp) it in Chocolate Chip (although you can hardly see it).

  8. I did the same color combination for the smaller roses.

  9. For the leaves, I used Kiwi Kiss and the stamp-off technique (where for the solid image, I stamp it in ink, stamp-off on a scrap piece of paper, then stamp the real card stock leaving a faded image in green. Then the highlighted/accented stamp for leaves was stamped regularly).

  10. To finish the card I taped the sides together and then used the Scallop Edge border punch on each end.

  11. Tie a bow with Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon and adhere with Mini Glue Dot at the bottom of the circle, and add a greeting to the front if desired.
