Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Pink Card Stock, Versafine Vintage Sepia Ink, Distressed Inks (Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet), Wink of Stella Clear, Super Fine White Embossing Powder, Distressed Markers (Victorian Velvet and Peeled Paint) and die cutting machine.


To make this 5 x 7 card you will start with 2 pieces of White Card Stock.  The first piece will be 7″ x 10 1/2″ and the second piece 8 1/2″ x 6 1/2″  Starting with the 8 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ piece place it on your scor board with the 8 1/2″ side on the top.  Scor at the 4″ mark and then from the Left side measure down from the top and cut a 1/2″ strip off the top so when finished you have a 4″ x 6″ panel attached to a 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ panel.  Next take the second piece of card stock and with the 10 1/2″ side at the top of your scor board scor at the 1″ and 5 1/2″ marks.  Now you will need to repeat cutting the same 1/2″ strip off the top of this piece but this time you with cut the strip off all the way to the 5 1/2″ scor line.  Finally attach the 1″ flap to the 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ panel of the first piece.  Now it’s time to add the pink card stock and decorative paper from the Classic Rose Paper Collection.  Each panel of the Pink is 1/2″ smaller than the white and the decorative paper is 1/2″ smaller again.  For example, for the 5″ x 7″ panel the pink card stock is 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ and the decorative paper is 4″ x 6″.  Repeat this process for all panels except for the pink panel on the front of the card.  To create this panel die cut the Regal Borders and Pockets Die and when finished trim the other 4 sides so you have the same 1/4″ gap on the 3 straight sides of the piece.  The Classic Rose flowers were stamped on white cardstock with Vintage Sepia and cut with the matching die before distressing with Victorian Velvet distressed ink and brushing with a Wink of Stella before shaping the flowers with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and finishing with Silver Micro Beads and attached as shown.  The smaller flowers were stamped on white cardstock with Frost White ink and heat embossed with Super Fine White Embossing Powder and cut with the matching die.  Finally they were distressed with Tattered Rose distressed ink before shaping the flowers with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and finishing with Mini Prills.  The Classic Rose Vines Cling Stamp Set was stamped on white cardstock with Northern Pine and cut with the matching die before finally distressing with Olive Grove.  Finally the Classic Rose Bouquet Cling Stamp Set was stamped on White cardstock with Northern Pine and cut with the matching die before coloring with Victorian Velvet and Peeled Paint Distressed Markers.

Thanks so much for your visit.  Have a wonderful day!

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
