Single Rose

Happy Monday, my friends! =) Here is a card that I made using fun stamps and dies from Paper Smooches.


Instead of using the outline rose, I cut a couple of roses out using the new Single Rose die and assembled them back using the outline ones as guides. It gives a result that looks like I have used dimensional paste. It's quite fun, no? =)


The sentiment is from Uplifters set.

That's all I have for now. For more inspirations using stamps and dies from Paper Smooches, please visit Paper Smooches Blog! =)

Have a beautiful day and thanks for stoping by!
