Belated Birthday Rose

Belated Birthday Rose
Made this birthday card for my colleague whose birthday is on tomorrow. As I do not see her tomorrow plus I seldom back to office, by the time she received my little birthday gift, it will be a late birthday wishes already. Thus, I pre-made a belated birthday wishes card to her instead even though her birthday is tomorrow!


Runway Inspired Challenge RIC #58 - Trina Turk and CAS(E) This Sketch #73
For this card sketch and inspiration, I decided to adopt the combo challenges of Runway Inspired Challenge RIC #58 - Trina Turk and CAS(E) This Sketch #73 as shown above. However, I rotate the sketch clockwise as this time, due to the sketch inspiration, I decided to make a different fold of mini card - a gate fold mini card!

Cose-up : Semi circle in gold embossed pattern on black background 
The background of the semi circle opening is embossed with gold embossing powder over the black card stock. After attached the embossed background onto the barley card base, it is die cut with a circle die to form the semi circle.

Close-up : 3D rose
On a white card stock, three (3) roses and two (2) leaves are stamped and colored using Copic markers. The color of the rose are inspired by the designer clothing. Then, the three (3) colored roses are trimmed so that they can be layered upon each to create some dimension using pop dots. Two (2) leaves are tucked behind the rose as decoration. It is then attached to the semi circle opening as in sketch.

Close-up : Sentiment
On the second fold, the sentiment is stamped on the left bottom corner. There is no other embellishment to the card as I want to keep the card as simple as possible.

Dimension : 7.62cm x 7.62cm or 3" x 3"
Type : Gate fold
Inlay : None
