When using Rose Garden thinlit dies, cutting out the dies one time creates materials for two different cards! I sponged Melon Mambo ink on Calypso Coral paper to create a two-tone (some call it ombre) effect. I used the petals to make a stained glass rose on a previous card.
That left me with this gorgeous cutout!
This photo sadly doesn’t do the colors justice. Blackberry Bliss is so much richer in real life and the two-tone colors of the rose are more vibrant. No amount of photo manipulation was going to make it perfect. Hopefully you get the idea!
As I hinted, I put the rose cutout on top of Blackberry Bliss paper, with another layer of Watermelon Wonder behind it.
Wait a minute, there wasn’t any Watermelon Wonder in this card!
As it turns out, when Calypso Coral and Melon Mambo mix, you get Watermelon Wonder! Neat!
I finished off this card by cropping opposing corners with the Project Life Corner Rounder Punch.
