3D Paper Tole Rose - Birthday

Friday is here an end to a very hectic week also and end to the kids term three.  They are now on holidays for two weeks so if I come and go over that time we will be out keeping them from being 'bored'.  :-)

Today I have a card that I was asked to make for a friend, for her friends 75th Birthday.
I so enjoy these Joy Fold cards as they are just a little different from the normal card and I can use more papers.

I started with a square blank white card,  cutting the front panel in half and then creating a smaller pink card for the right hand side.  The green background is Bazzill card stamped with a flourish from my Stampin Up Priceless set.  Front left panel has some Pink Bazzill Bling and a lovely white cross grain ribbon from Mei Flower.  The front of the little card the patterned paper is a magazine giveaway which I have hand stitched around the edge.   The sentiment is computer generated.  And lastly and by no means least this beautiful rose is from a StudioLight Die Cut Paper Tole Sheet I have.  So it was easy to push out all the pieces (no cutting).....I then go around with my craft knife to cut off all the little nodes.  Then I go around the back edge of all the pieces with my embossing tool while they are sitting on a mouse pad....just to curl the edges under a little a give some texture.  Then I layered the pieces up.  I so love the gloss and the colour of this rose.
