Micro Bead Rose

I've had this pattern paper gate fold card laying on my desk for about a month now and finally got to use it!  I made the image panel by stamping the Wild Rose from Sparkle N Sprinkle with Memento and coloring with Copics, then Sparkle N Sprinkle just got this 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and it's super tacky, so I wanted to see if it would hold micro beads, so I covered the image with the tape and cut it out with the Curved Rectangle die and then peeled the release paper off and covered it with the beads and they stuck just fine!  So that's when I started looking around my desk to see what I could use to make a card out of and I spotted the green pattern paper that I used my new Grand Labels 4 die already cut and just waiting to be used! lol

I picked out some peach cardstock that matched the rose and die cut the next smaller die for the inside and stamped the border and sentiment with green dye ink.
The belly band was made with the same peach cardstock cut to 11 x 1 1/2 and then a green layer of border punch.  The seam binding was dyed with Smootch Spritz and Copic Various's shimmery IRL.
If you want to see the full directions you can see them here.
Hope you have a great day:)
Happy Stamping,
