I made a 6" square gate fold card so I'd have enough room to make a little picket fence covered with roses.
The center rose covers the card's opening. I used Ranger Distress crackle paint in "Picket Fence" to paint my popsicle sticks. I just directly painted the sticks as I thought that would look more realistic than putting down a brown base coat and then the crackle paint.
In this closeup you can see the crackling a little more clearly. The roses are made from bright pink felt using a Sizzix die.
Finally, here's the inside of the card. This Irish Blessing is from Verve's set "Blessings."
DP: K & Co. "Watercolor Bouquet" (This is the 12" x 12" version of the paper. I used the top of the sheet for the front of the card and the bottom of the sheet with all of its glittery floral beauty for the inside of the card.)
Stamps: Verve "Blessings"
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Other: Popsicle sticks, Ranger Distress crackle paint "Picket Fence," pink felt, craft glue, thin twine, pearl flourishes, Sizzix dies "Flowers, 3D" and "Branch with Leaves"
