So yesterday I was motivated to learn how to make paper roses.  I mastered it and was thrilled.  However, this morning I realized I still had not even started on my most important Christmas card, the one for my wonderful and amazingly supportive husband.  So I got busy and here is what I came up with.

For the large roses I used the EK Success Large 5 petal flower punch (there is a great video on u-tube it is Paper Rose Tutorial by jjshowers) I had forgot how hot hot glue gets LOL.  The little roses were super easy.  They are from the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and you simply roll them up and glue.  I cut the tag and the red swirl (which I ran an embossing tool around the ends of the swirls to make them 3D but it doesn't show well in the pic) from the Art Philosophy cartridge as well.  The base white ornamental piece is from the Ornamental Iron 2 Cricut Cartridge.  Loved making this now I have to figure out how to make a box to present it in.  Merry Christmas and keep crafting.
