Rose Garden Background

Among the dies included in Rose Garden thinlits is a smaller rose outline without leaves.

I cut 4 of the roses from Whisper White card stock and adhered them to the mat. Only 1 whole rose was adhered to the mat, then partial sections to fill in around it.

Applying the adhesive to the back of the die-cuts before removing them from the dies makes less mess and easier handling.

Rose Garden Work of Art

Work of Art is a versatile stamp set with a variety of images including several brushstroke stamps.

Using the die as a guide, stamp the brushstrokes in a light and dark colour of both yellow and green.

Then, use the Big Shot to cut the outline and adhere it over the colours. Simple.

Tip: apply the adhesive to the die cut while it is still in the thinlit.

Inlaid Rose Garden

The Rose Garden Thinlits can be used with different colours of card stock to create an inlaid effect. It's time consuming, but pretty.

Use the Big Shot to cut the rose with leaves die from the card front and adhere black card stock to the back of the card front.

Then cut the die from Gold Foil card stock and adhere the outline to the card front.

You can use adhesive sheets to make the outline into an easy to handle sticker or apply the adhesive to the back before removing it from the die to make less mess.

Next cut the leaves from Old Olive card stock and the rose from Rose Red card stock. Apply adhesive to the back before removing the pieces from the die and fill in the outline.
