Rose of You're The Best Art Teacher!

Rose of You're The Best Art Teacher!
The last card is for my daughter's Art teacher who is also the school afternoon session senior principal assistant.

Seize the Sketch #20
For this card, I adopt the simple sketch from Seize the Sketch #20 as shown above. I rotate the sketch clockwise to fit my sentiment.


Close-up : Custom background
Since this card is for an Art teacher, I include more arty stuff like making my own background or pattern paper. A scallop border is used to stamp the pattern on a yellow card stock and colored the scallop gaps using Copic markers. It is then trimmed accordingly and attached onto a white card base.


Close-up : Sentiment
A blue tag is die cut and the sentiment is stamped onto it. It is then attached onto the card as in sketch.


Close-up : Off the edge 3D rose
Again, I create my signature 3D rose. On a white card stock, three (3) roses and two (2) leaves are stamped and colored using Copic markers. 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. The layered rose is then attached onto the card base on the left of the tag. Since the sentiment has taken a huge space of card, the rose is only able to be attached to the card half and the other half is off the card edge. This is my first time create a card with stamped image off the card edge. I love the outcome!

The card is finished with two (2) red gems to the right and left of the word 'best'.

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

Love the way the bold rose hangs off the edge of the card! Turning the sketch to the side was a great way to do this, too.

Thanks for playing with us at Seize THe Sketch!
