Roses for You

The Gypsy File is available for this card by email. Just copy and paste this email to your personal email account and let me know which Gypsy file that you are wanting.

I know this is so much like a card I made two cards before this one… but I kept having that card and that paper in my head… and a card I made a long time ago… so I just combined those two cards and came up with this one… I am so excited at how it turned out!!!… If I had a blue room I would frame this one in a shadow box frame.. But I don’t… and I don’t know anybody that does… this so reminds me of the living room of the house I grew up in… the room that I got married in almost 30 years ago… it would have been so pretty in that room… oh I could cry right now… I hope that you love this card as much as I do… I hope you all have a wonderful day! Hugs, Jeannie

Layer 1
Create a Critter
Leaves (3) cut @ w 2.42 x h 3.28... I flipped one from left to right…. On the Cricut I would cut this @ 3 ¾ inches.
Cindy Lou
Flourishes (4) cut @ w 2.66 x h 2.06... I flipped one of these too… On the Cricut I would cut these @ 2 inches.
Sugar and Spice
Scalloped Oval (I love this cut) cut @ w 4.59 x h 4.39... On the Cricut I would cut this @ 4 ¼ inches.
Oval cut @ w 2 18 x h 3.78... You will have to unlink the width and height to get this … using the Cricut I would use an oval cutter for this cut.
Layer 2
Wild Card
Roses (16) cut @ w 2.92 x h 4.09 … I cut 4 in brown and 12 in blue… I cut roses from the blue ones just above the part that would be green on a real rose… then I cut them apart even further… each rose had one brown part.. A large blue part… a smaller blue part…and the smallest blue part…I used the lines that the Cricut made to cut these apart and layer them up… see close up picture of rose … on the Cricut I would cut these @ 4 inches.
Creative Memories Corner Punch (retired)
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Card base 4 ¼ x 5 ½ inches… Frame piece 4 x 5 ¼ inches…. Background piece 3 ½ x 4 ¾ inches… Sentiment piece 2 ¾ x 4 inches… all these pieced I cut on my paper trimmer.

I love sharing the instructions and files for my cards but I do ask that if you use my instructions or files to recreate my card and place it on your blog or somebody else’s blog that you give me the credit for the original design. I also ask that you do not submit my designs for publication, profit or for any contest. Thank you!

It's gorgeous! I love the colors and the soft roses! It's so elegant! Love the flourishes and the lace punch edge. I am really getting hooked on the edge punches. Hee! Hee!

Most Sincerely,

It is soo pretty!

So... was it popular in AL about 30 years ago to get married in your parents living room? I only ask because my in-laws did the same thing about 30 years ago and live in AL! Oh... and I got married on my in-laws pool deck almost 12 years ago. :0)

Oh Jeannie this is absolutely breathtaking....everything about this card screams beauty and love.....Fabulous job!

Sandy Bayles said...

Another excellent job....I love roses and butterflies as you know. Maybe some day I will get to use the gypsy. I am going to have to buy more carts because I don't have many that you do. I love the colors. I have mauve or purple roses in my garden. I would love to see this card with those colors.
Great Job Lady.................
