Paper Tole Rose (Tutorial)

Hello everyone,

It been almost 2 weeks since my last post...whoa!!!
I had a lot of my ideas in mind...but I was too exhausted to actually make them into cards...
So I decided to take some rest...some time off...

But now I am back...and I have a new technique (new for me) and a tutorial...
I saw this technique on Stamplorations once...its called Paper Tole...
It is a way to make prints appear 3-D...works best with flowers...

So hop on for a tutorial...

The first step is to take many prints of the same image in the same size...
The no. of prints you will need will be equal to the no. of layers you want...
I went with 4...


Next you will have to colour in all the images...I coloured mine in Work Lipstick DI...


The next step is to decide the layers...what portion of the image do you want on a layer...
In case of flowers...just start eliminating layers of petals...
eg: for the 2nd layer...eliminate the outermost layer of petals...

Next step is to attach foam tape to each layer...leave some space around the edges of the layers...I will tell you why in a moment

Now start assembling the layers...starting with largest image at the bottom...
Be sure to align the layers perfectly...
And Tada...your 3-D rose is ready



Now you can curl up some petals...to give it a more 3-D look...and that is why I left some space around the foam tape...
Here is a better look at the layers...


Now that this was done...I thought of trying some more new things for my card....
I have never used corrugated cardboard and wire on my card...and they both seem to be very much in trend right now...So I gave it a go


I added a handwritten sentiment below the corrugated cardboard,wire, rose assembly with white Sakura marker...






I am pretty pleased with how it turned out...
I think it works great as a valentine card without hearts. The cardboard and wire give it a masculine feel...

oooh...a few more things...
I added some distress ink to the area where I wrote the sentiment...just to kind of...outline it...
Also the corrugated cardboard is from some cardboard box that was at home...

Whew...now that was a big post...
I would love to hear your comments and opinions about the card...

I am entering the card in the following challenges:

The Male Room Challenge  - Masculine Valentine card
AAA cards challenge - Valentine card
CASology - Love  - Love theme card
The Paper Shelter  - Corrugated cardboard
