Yellow Roses

Thank you all so much for the very warm comments you’ve left on my last post. I’m very touched by your thoughtfulness and prayers. 

I’m afraid I have misled some of you with the wording in my last post and I want to apologize. When I stated I’ve completed the last book in the technique series, I meant to convey that I’ve finished the lessons in the last book and have completed the lessons in all seven of the books. I did not write these technique books, I’m merely a student learning the beautiful craft of parchment and I wanted to share my progress with you.

I’ve made a pretty, quick and easy card to share with you, not much work is involved. I’ve included my favorite adorable butterflies. I’m still using the Fancy Crafts Twin Punch. I never tire of these fluttering creatures, they’re petite and perfect for note cards like this.

I made the yellow roses using Spellbinders Rose Creations dies. After embossing and assembling the roses, I added a bit of black Flower Soft to the flowers’ centers. I cut two of Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles, using the smaller one for the flower spray and the larger one to make the frame. Using a die from Spellbinders Large Rectangles, I cut the center from the largest Fleur de Lis Rectangle to form the frame. Both Fleur de Lis Rectangles were placed on dimensionals for depth. I used light yellow cardstock for the card base. The inside of the card was left blank for writing a note.

  33. Selma says:

    This is a gorgeous card Jerri.

  34. Dottie says:

    What a beautiful sweet card. I have been looking for ideas for sympathy cards that don’t require a ton of work as it seems we need many of these over the year. The flowers set it all off so attractively…the green leaves spray is so perfect to fill up a little more space. Very pristine and gorgeous work, Jerri. (I am just soooo glad you are back.)

  35. Sandi says:

    Hi Jeri, I saw your name on the upper right corner of the book and assumed you had written the book. My mistake not your’s. Love the new card and I might even be able to case this card. Hugs

  36. Chelsea says:

    Jeri, that is soooo gorgeous! I love how you used the two rectangles to frame your lovely flowers. This is just the prettiest card, so warm and cheerful. What a wonderful gift! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!!

  37. Your card is so lovely! It’s so nice to see your 3D creations and flowers on your blog again. Those little butterflies are so sweet flitting about the blossoms.
    Hmm….maybe you should think about writing your own book. You have certainly got the talent and knowledge for it!
    Can’t wait to see your next creation! 🙂

  38. Gorgeous flowers, love the yellows, sweet framing of them!

  39. Ellen says:

    Sometimes the simpliest of designs can be the most appealing and versatile. This card is one of those amazing designs that can be used for almost any occasion. It is so good having you back on your blog. I look forward to many more of your lovely creations.

  40. I am absolutely convinced that it takes a trained eye to see and create this level of art, Jerri. You have a wonderful gift of doing just that. This is such a beautiful card. Thank you for inspiring us once again with your exquisite designs.

    It’s a joy to see a post from you back in my mailbox! Have missed the inspiration that your art always gives. I know that I’m not patient enough to do the Pergo Craft, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t love to see your creations, they are always exquisite. Thanks for sharing this card, gave me an idea to run with!

  52. Eunice Brown says:

    Hi Jerri,
    I love your cards, and you make them look so easy. But I must confess, my flowers never look even close to yours, but I keep trying, maybe someday I’ll create something worth keeping. Thanks for sharing and posting again.
