Blue Christmas Roses

This is my favourite of all the samples I made using Tina's new Christmas stamps.
Cut a piece of the Indian Summer 12” x 12” paper to 6” x 6”. Cut a piece of Clarity stencil card to 5.5” x 5.5”. Use the seventh largest of the nested picot circle dies to cut an aperture centrally.
Stamp the Christmas Rose corner stamp into each corner in Versamark ink and heat emboss with Sapphire embossing enamel.
Stamp the Christmas Rose centrepiece stamp onto the designer paper in Versamark ink and heat emboss with detail white embossing powder.
Mask off the rose section of the centrepiece stamp before inking up, remove masking and continue the swags both sides in the same way as before.
Add the sentiment above the centrepiece image in Versamark ink and white heat embossing.
Mat the designer paper panel onto a second piece of stencil card leaving a very narrow border and add to a piece of darker blue pearlescent card leaving a wider border.
Add this panel to the front of a 7” x 7” white card blank.
To finish, add a little darker blue watercolour pencil to the swags and blend out with a water brush. Add the die cut panel centrally over the top of the designer paper.
