Roses Clear Stamp Birthday Card

I first received stock of the Four Roses stamp from Woodware just before Christmas and have been dying to try it out ever since. I finally got to play with it a couple of weeks ago once the Christmas rush was over and I had time to make birthday cards for a couple of friends. I have to say I am very pleased with the results and enjoyed experimenting with the text stamps to create backgrounds.

 For this card I stamped the roses text with a watermark ink pad onto cream card to make a background and adhered this to a square card blank, I put a strip of green crocheted lace across the centre and cut a lacey circle with another of our new stock items the Spellbinders Lacey Circle die cutting set. I cut a plain circle from cream card, inked the edges and stamped the two roses in black, then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I coloured the roses using water colour pencils. I adhered the circle to the lacey circle and attached that to the centre of the card.
The sentiment is also stamped on cream card in black and heat embossed with gold. I inked the edges of the cream card and mounted it on green card then attached it to the card.
