Ahhh....now this is more like I had in mind when I created my first aasel card. Earlier today, I created an my first easel card for my Mom. I liked it but decided to try something a little different. I found another tutorial here and thought it was a lot easier than the first one and the first one wasn't hard, but why have an extra step ... right... Today was a day of firsts for me....I made my first easel cards, I sanded paper for the first time on the roses, and I made these roses for the first time. Success. I really like how this one turned out! I love the red, black, and white. Very pretty. I should have made one of these for my Mom with a blue rose on it. I love how the sanded edges give such a pretty look to these roses. Lovin it!
