Valentines Day is tomorrow and I don’t know about you but I’ve been dreaming about getting a lovely basket of lush red roses from my dear husband. Hopefully he will see this post and oblige (ha ha ) but in the interim I thought I would make do with my home-made basket of roses – in a card.
I know you’re thinking – is that a card??? It certainly is! It’s a card made out of card stock, glitter strips and ribbon so basically I don’t really need a basket of actual roses, this should certainly make do! Here’s a look at the card from another angle.
Wondering how I concocted this creation? I am happy to say that I filmed ‘the making of this card’ so you can see first hand how I made the project in the video tutorial below. The woven basket of glitter strips isn’t complex at all, watch the video and you will see a really quick an easy way to do it. And all those roses – they’re made from the ItsyBitsy Swirly Rose die. It’s really a great investment because you can make all the roses you want in the color you want. Plus I have provided a close detailed view of how I made that bow so watch on!
I am also providing a template of the shape I used for this card. The size is approx 4.25″ by 6.25″ but you can enlarge or reduce as you require.
I hope you enjoyed this post and the video. Now all that’s left is for my husband to get me the real stuff! Cheers!
