Hi. I'm Donna and the owner of a business called Luv2Emboss. I've been crafting since the moment I could color with a crayon without eating it first! I have been embossing with Lasting Impressions' Brass Templates for 20 years and I am on their Design Team. I also love to craft with rubber stamps and I sell Lawn Fawn products. I hope the cards and projects I display will perk your interest to try a new craft or play with an old one! Enjoy. :-)

A ROSE IS JUST ANOTHER ROSE - OR IS IT?

Donna's Rose, LI Template #L9379
Several years ago I used this Rose Tag on a Wedding Gift.  I love the colors ... the black and pink together ... and the fun layering you can accomplish with LI Template #L9379.  Yesterday, my crafting buddy Jan says, "Did you know you can make a paper rose from this template?"  Well, I didn't!  I've used this rose image many times but never like this:

Simple Layout of LI Template #L9379 embossed.




First Jan embossed the image.  She cut it out going around and around the embossed edge.  Then she held the smallest section (center) of the flower with her tweezers and started wrapping her cut edges around the tweezers.  When you take the paper off the tweezers your rose will expand a little and you will need to add glue in the center to hold the petals.  Then using the tweezers once again, Jan curled the edges of the petals to give it more shape.  There you have it ... a perfect paper rose!

Thank you Jan for sharing another way to use LI Template #L9379.  I think I may have to re-make my wedding tag!  Embossing joys, :-) Donna
