Ring of roses

This card was inspired by the Chocolate Baroque Challenge 11, I wanted to make something that was reminiscent of the stained glass windows in cathedrals but that also went beyond the card, so the leaves of the long roses and the ribbon roses are "off the edge". The bottoms ones are folded to make "feet".


White Card Stock

Chocolate Baroque Mackintosh Windows
Chocolate Baroque Mackintosh Beauty

Versafine Black Onyx

Spectrum Noir alcohol markers

Embossing Powders:
WOW! Embossing powder Metallic Silver - regular

Craft Knife


1) Load up the ladies face from Mackintosh windows with Versafine Black Onyx and stamp onto white card, allow to dry.

2) Next load up the small roses from the windows set and stamp 21 onto white card using the black ink

3) Get the "long" rose from the beauty set and stamp 8 of these, again using the black onyx versafine

5) Finally get the rose and ribbons from the beauty set and stamp 4.

6) Colour the face using FS1 and the hair using TN8, then use the other 4 pens to colour in as per the picture above.

7) Using compasses draw a circle with a radius of 5.8 cms and cut this out

8) Stamp the versamark ink on the circle and then cover with the silver embossing powder, use the heat tool to cure the powder.

9) Next you want to create a ring start by drawing a circle that has a radius of 6.3 and then around that draw one that has a radius of 7.8cm cut this out so you have a ring and colour with GT2

10) Next to create the blue ring you need a circle with a radius of 8.3cm followed by 10.8cm

12) Finally draw a square that is 20cm x 20cm and the draw a circle (starting at the centre) with a radius of 11.3cm to create the purple corners

13) colour in the roses as per the image above (small ones in BP 3) long ones in a combination of BP3 in centre with PL4 and then use GT2 for the stems

14) Colour the rose and ribbon using BP3 and GT2

15) Cut out the face and all the roses using a sharp craft knife

16) Assemble the card as per the image (face on the silver circle, pink roses on green circle, long roses on blue, and the rose and ribbons on the purple)

17) Fold the ribbon roses on the bottom to make "feet" for the card
