Red Christmas Roses Card for Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop

Red Christmas Roses Card: October 2016 Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop

Hello, Friends!  So nice to have you hopping along with us for the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop!  You have come here from the very talented Archana’s blog.  With Christmas looming, I thought it might be wise for me to get a jump start on my holiday cards.  So today I have a classic Red Christmas Rose Card to share with you.

red-christmas-roses-classic-rose-stamp-and-die-by-kathy-clement-product-by-heartfelt-creations-photo-2I treated myself to the new Classic Rose Stamp and Die, and I’m so glad I did!  These roses are so easy to make and they come out just gorgeous.

    Seriously…I thought the roses were store bought. The fact you made those shows your true talent…WOW!!! They are gorgeous! LOVE the white embossed paper too…looks like homemade paper! Gorgeous card and not simple looking at all!

    I was going to say what Anita said about the white paper looking home made. Great job, the roses are amazing. Really lovely card!

    Oh, those roses are shaped so beautifully and with the touch of gold they’re so elegant! I love how that distressed and embossed white background shows them off so gorgeously!!

      Thank you so much! If you want to be encouraged about your flower making, look back in my archives and you’ll see that I’ve come a long, long way. It’s like the old joke for piano players: How do you get to Carnegie Hall? practice, practice, practice! LOL
