Old Country Roses & Rustic Roses

I have always been a down home country girl, never had much use for city life. My dad was a butcher and so I was raised around hogs and cows. Sometimes my dad would try to save a sickly calf or a runt piglet. He would bring it home and he and I would take care of it. We had one calf that we brought into the house because it was to cold for it outside. I got the chicken pox and that calf would take care of me.  He and I were like fried chicken and mashed potatoes, we loved each other. He had the most beautiful blue eyes and so I named him my blue-eyed baby. Unfortunately he did not get to live long, just long enough to know he was loved. Our kitchen where he spent most of his life, was sort of patterned like the Country Floral Embossing folder and this made me think of him.

Now for my Country Floral cards:)

This first card I call Old Country Roses
I swiped the balmy blue ink pad on the raised portion of the embossing folder and then ran a piece of whisper white through it. Instead of having the raised portion showing it is reversed. I added a piece of the blue organdy ribbon and tied it into a knot. I then added some of the blue glitter enamel dots here and there. I colored in the flower with balmy blue dark blend and the leaves in mossy meadow dark blend and then fussy cut around them. I adhered them to card front with dimensionals and added yellow glitter enamel dots to the center of the flower. I added a piece of whisper white to the inside and left it blank for a personal note to be written.

This second card I call Rustic Roses
I again swiped crumb cake but on the opposite side and ran it through the embossing folder with the raised side being the focal point. I then embossed some gold foil with the tine tile embossing folder and cut two of the squares out and adhered to the top and bottom left corners. I stamped the sentiment from home to roost "Enjoy the simple moments" onto a piece of crumb cake cardstock and added it to the card front. I left the inside blank again for that special note.

Here is where it shows the embossed and reverse embossed sides. See the difference it makes for each card?
