I made these cards recently using a new nameplate die that I got.
The first card is inspired by Melissa Phillips I just love her style!
These are just a couple of simple cards using several different QuicKutz dies.
I enjoyed making these cards. It is actually fun to plan on a much smaller scale than 12x12 layouts. You might be seeing more cards from me in the future!

I didn't want it to be too feminine since it was in memory of her dad, so I opted for some masculine stripes and roses.
A tutorial on these roses can be found on designer Nancy Burke's blog.
I pretty much followed the tutorial, except that once the roses were made and secured, I spritzed them with some Fired Brick Distress Ink with Red perfect pearls to give it a deep rich color and a sheen. I also spritzed the Prima leaves with Lettuce Color Wash from Ranger and a little gold Perfect Pearls. You may see the tiniest sheen of a swirl on the paper. I stamped a flourish from an Inque Boutique/Darice stamp set and covered it with gold perfect pearls for a hint of a glimmery pattern. Then I spritzed the whole thing with gold Perfect Pearls mixed in Water.
