Thank You Rose
by Sue McRae


Hello crafters! It’s Friday and that means the weekend is almost here! I hope you’re planning on getting a little bit of crafty time in.

Today I have another easy card that can be made quickly for any occasion.

First I took some patterned paper and white heat embossed a flower from the Wild Rose Stem stamp set on it and cut it out.


I chose a pink card stock that matches the patterned paper and ran it through my die cutting machine with the Gracious Leaves Embossing Folder. Embossing is a great way to add visual interest and texture to a simple card design.


Next I die cut the Orchard Leaves from white card stock to add around the flower bloom. I like the texture that the cut lines on the leaves adds to the card.

The sentiments are from the same stamp set as the flower. I chose two complimentary sentiments and white heat embossed the thank you on black card stock and stamped the second sentiment with black on white card stock.


I assembled the card and added a sparkly gem to the flower centre.


You can really change up the look of your card by your choice of patterned paper. The options are limitless!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today and I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for this inspiring card. I love it! Simple is elegant. Beautiful work!

I love this beautiful card, Sue! The background EF is so pretty in pink & I love the print flower.

Hi Sue, I love the embossed background on your card and the lovely colourway. The technique with stamping the rose stamp onto patterned paper and then heat embossing is a fabulous technique and looks beautiful.
Take care, stay safe, stay well.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

I too love to use pattern papers for my flowers when I am in a hurry for a card, love the paper you chose, pretty against the embossing!

I didn't get a die cut machine when they came out, but when I found out you can do dry embossing one was in my car! This is one of the most beautiful folders I've ever seen! I never think to stamp/emboss on printed paper--love your flower!
