Thank you, Spellbinders Paper Arts, for sponsoring this contest!

I am thrilled to be sharing two projects with you today using S4-345 Picot Edge Circles Nestabilities® Decorative Element and S4-351 Spiral Blossom One.

For my first project I designed a card.

Look at how absolutely gorgeous this rose is!! As so many of you know spiral or rolled rose have been so popular. They are fun, quick and easy to make but now with the S4-351 Spiral Blossom One die template you can create beautifully detailed edge roses and the die does all the work for you! On my card I create a larger double rose and two rose buds and I have a step-by-step tutorial to share with you.

I started out by using the Grand Calibur™ Machine to cut/emboss all of my die cuts. From the S4-345 Picot Edge Circles I cut/embossed #3 (#1 is the smallest) with Simply Smooth White, #4 with Soot and #1 with Green Crepe. Using the S4-351 Spiral Blossom One die template I cut four die cut shapes with Simply Smooth White cardstock. I used S4-321 Nested Leaves with Green Crepe t0 cut all of the leaves.

To create a two tone rose I inked the inside edge with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. Here is a little tip for inking the spiral blossom, slide the die cut in between two pieces of paper and ink and turn the die cut as you go. It's quick and easy and it will keep you from getting ink on the top of the petals.

Now comes the fun part, creating the flower. Start from the outer edge of the die cut and begin rolling the paper.


Keep rolling the blossom until you reach the larger end of the die cut. I like to roll the blossom pretty tight.


Then let go of the blossom and it will spin back opening up. Then I applied 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue from Beacon Adhesives to the bottom of the flower and held in place for just a little bit until the glue could take hold.


To create the next layer of the rose I used a foam pad and the end of my paper piercer to go in a circular motion on the petals. The petals will begin to take shape. If you don't have a paper piercer with a rounded end you can use a stylus, a pen or anything that has a round tip.


Adhere the first blossom onto the second one and begin to roll the flower. For this second layer I applied glue along the inside edge as I rolled.


Here is a picture of the larger rose with two little rose buds. I used the same steps to create the rose buds but I only rolled the first four petals. Then I added the small green crepe die cut from S4-345 Picot Edge Circles to the base of the rose bud and pinched the end. I used a bone folder and paper piercer to shape the petals. So you can see the difference the first rose bud in the picture is just rolled and the second has the petals shaped.


Here is a close up picture of the rose buds.


I inked all of the leaves with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.


For the sentiment I used Cl-02125 Signs of Life stamp set from JustRite Stampers. Then I added Nestabling™ Heart Circles Black Rhinestones. The Nestabling is made to go with S4- Heart Circles but it also works perfectly with S4-345 Picot Edge Circles.


Next I assembled the card as shown. I layered the two S4-345 Picot Edge Circle die cuts using 3D Foam Squares. Then I added the larger rose and the leaves. I added Swirls, Finesse White Pearls from Want2Scrap™ to the bottom and side of the card.


The rose buds were the last pieces I added to the card.
