HAPPY BIRTHDAY USING LILY-BOOS FREE ROSE IMAGE




Good evening
Sam and Lou over at Lily-Boos Boutique posted a free image of a gorgeous rose that was quite intricate. I decided as my colouring is still not fab to see what I could do differently with it!
I converted the image to an SVG file in Inkscape and cut it out with SCAL on my Cricut. I had to make it quite large and my card is 10"x7" but the Cricut coped so well with all the intricate cutting!
The backing on the card is Kanban card black and speckled gold. The rose is cut with American crafts black card and I flittered it with some gold glamour dust which is now all over me too lol!I cut a black out in gold mirri card. The sentiment is computer generated font Edwardian Script ITC and printed on gold inkjet foil and then layered on black and gold. The rose and the sentiment have then been pop dotted.
I have posted pic 3 to show the cut out before it was mounted.. So don't forget to go over to Lily-Boos and get your free image Sam does beautiful work and there are quite a few freebies as well as gorgeous affordable collections to be had and they are so so versatile!
Thanks for looking and have a great evening ! Oh and please excuse my wonky photography!

Julie this card is absolutely gorgeous and the colours are just stunning. I downloaded the image and made a sympathy card. I cut mine out by hand but you are so clever using SCAL.
