Take time to smell the roses

There’s a recipe to follow at Craft Your Passion this week.1 Ribbon or Twine,2 Design Papers and 3 Buttons.We’re sponsored by the fab Delicious Doodles and Simon Says Stamp.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

I’ve tried a new fold,well for me!It’s called a Double Dutch Fold and instructions can be found here.My measurements are slightly different as they were ones given to me by a demonstrator at my local craft warehouse.Here’s the card open :

The image I’ve used is the divine Rosalee by Delicious Doodles and she’s been coloured with FlexMarkers.The papers are by K & Co and I thought they’d be perfect for her.I’ve used the rose one inside too :

I printed out the sentiment on my computer.

I looped the ribbon on the front one end to make it look like leaves and pleated it the other.I adhered a kraft card rose,which I colour tinted on the edges using pearlescent paint and added a button to,on top.I glued the other buttons to the bottom flaps to act as handles.

Supplies :
Image : Rosalee by Delicious Doodles
Colouring mediums : FlexMarkers,Pearlescent watercolour paint
Sentiment : Made by me!
Papers & card : DP K & Co,kraft  and pearlised textured card from my stash
Tools : Fiskars Euro Personal Paper Trimmer 30cm (for cutting and scoring),Siesta Large Corner Rounder Punch,Nestabilities Standard Oval and Classic Scallop Oval (both large and small),Marianne Designs Flower Fantasy,Big Shot
