Card Full of Roses

Hello! I'm Ana from Craft Me a Card coming to you once more with a Card showcasing a beautiful background stamp called Roses from Blank Page Muse by Pam Bray Designs. 

Once I saw this stamp, I knew exactly how I wanted to use it. The whimsical yet elegant nature of this design called for me to create a card using the color gold and a salmon pink. I can't wait to recreate this card using mint and gold as the colors.

Here I will be guiding you along as I explain the steps I take in creating this beautiful card for my cousins birthday. She loves this color and she loves roses.  

 Supply list:

  • Oxide inks by Tim Holtz (Worn lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade) 
  • Gold colored cardstock
  • White cardstock
  • Gold Embossing Powder
  • Gold Sequin
  • Ribbon 
  • Corner metal dies


First you will start off by covering your card base with solid gold colored cardstock or paper.

To get the next layer prepared for heat embossing, apply antistatic powder to a piece of white cardstock. 

Add embossing ink to the stamp and stamp it on the white cardstock.

Sprinkle gold embossing powder on this stamped image until it is completely covered. With a heat tool, melt the embossing powder to reveal the roses background.

On a non-porous surface like a piece of plastic or glass, apply oxide inks from the stamp pads by "smashing" them on the surface. Spritz the ink with water. Next, take the embossed piece and "smash" it on to the wet inks. This will give your background a beautiful water colored look.

Since the stamp is shorter than the card base, cut the embossed piece in half.


For measure, cut a piece of white cardstock a bit smaller than your card base. Remember to make sure the width is the same as the piece you embossed.

Glue these two pieces (the embossed piece cut in half) to this measured white cardstock making sure the embossed pieces reach both ends of the white cardstock. There will be a white gap left in between. Don't worry I have a solution for it.

Add a piece of wide gold ribbon to the middle of the card, wide enough to cover the gap. This will help bring out the gold in the card. On top of this gold ribbon, add a piece of pink or salmon colored ribbon. This will help the card bring out more of that pink color.
This piece is now ready to be glued on to the card base. Using liquid glue adhere it to the center of the gold covered card base.

Create a bow using the same salmon or pink ribbon you placed on top of the gold ribbon. Please see YouTube link Easy Bow Making on how I created this bow using a home made tool.
Add some liquid glue to the center of the two ribbons to glue the bow down.

Print or stamp your Happy Birthday sentiment on cardstock prepared the same way as the colored card base. 

With a metal die or a punch cut the sentiment out. Using liquid glue, glue it on to the middle of the bow. As if the tag was tied into the bow.

To add some sparkle to the card, glue sequin sporadically on to the card. 

Adding some Glossy Accents makes the sentiment shine and helps it stand out.

To finish the card, add corners to it. You can skip this step, although I think it helps give the card a more completed look.

That is all from me today... If you would like to view a YouTube tutorial I made of this card I invite you to click the link YouTube Quick Birthday Card .

As always, I hope you get inspired, I hope you create and be happy.
