Fifth Ave Floral Bouquet

What a g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s bouquet! Wouldn't this make a beautiful wedding invitation/announcement or bridal shower invitation?  These roses are what I call the MacIver Rose technique.  You can check out Sandi MacIver's blog for additional information on how to make these roses, she has a tutorial. They are very easy and so much fun.  I started with a 12 x 5.5" piece of paper.  I scored it at 4" and 8.25 leaving folded panels of 4" and 3/75".  I placed 3 roses on the front 4" panel and 2 roses are the panel that lies underneath., creating the look of a bouquet.  I've had this design in my mind for a while, so I'm glad to be sharing it woth you. I used the Fifth Ave Floral rose and embossed it with white embossing powder.  The roses are colored with So Saffron, Pink Pirouette, Peach Parfait and Cajun Craze re-inkers. Using the Big Shot, I embossed the base card with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.
