A Rose for You by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with a CAS type Christmas card for you.

What I did:

I used the That’s Crafty! greyboard Christmas Florals 2 for this and started to paint them up after referring to a picture of a Christmas Rose on the internet!

I used a mixture of That’s Crafty! own brand paints for this and edged the leaves and rose with a tiny hint of a green Gelato. 

I wracked my brain for the centre of the flower and then remembered I have some of the Tim Holtz flowers, which are just plain white so I coloured the stamens in with a yellow pen.

After a bit of doodling on the leaves with a white pen and a grey pencil for the flower, I took my pokey tool and made a hole through the rose so I could thread the stamens through.

Before I adhered the rose to the card I used a green Distress Oxide and pounced it through a Dinky stencil just to add a little detail to the background on the Kraft card.

I then put a little bit of cut twine on the card and then added the rose on top of it.

To add a finishing touch I added a Tim Holtz sentiment and there you have a simple but effective CAS type Christmas card…..well that’s one more card I’ve made to be crossed off my never ending list!!

Supplies Used:

That’s Crafty! Paints (Shimmer and Multi Surface)
Grey Pencil

Hope you like it
