Black and white Damask

Here is a card I made for a young lady that I used to teach many long years ago. She's getting married. (man, that makes me feel old...)

She loves Damask. (So do I) The bottom part in a flocked paper. The top is embossed with Victoria Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I made the roses by hand with one of Penny Duncan's rose svg cut files.

You can get the cut files from this post at  Penny Duncan Creations.  She also has a video on how she makes the roses. Great stuff! She is very talented and shares a lot of her files :)

I do my flowers just a little bit differently than hers. I have been making flowers out of cake icing, modeling clay, and paper for years and usually just stick to the same basic technique (old habits die hard). I follow the same basic steps of molding my petals as I explained in this tutorial. (will make a video soon) I take a lot of time shaping each petal then take time gluing and staggering each petal when I assemble the rose.

Just remember, there is no right or wrong way. Just do what works for you and have fun.

If you don't have Sure Cuts A Lot or Make the Cut and would like to see a tutorial on making a rose out of 7 circles, leave a comment mentioning it or email me at . It is an old quilling technique I used back before all the cool die cutting machines and programs came along.

Happy crafting :)

What an elegant card for the lucky couple. I know what you mean...where has the time gone? I love your embossing and the flourishes with those roses and pleated ribbon is gorgeous. Tfs.
