Rose Cafe' Valentine Card Tutorial

Hello Bloggers!
I was so excited when I found out I would be designing with the Bo Bunny Rose Cafe" Bundle by FotoBella!  Look at all the amazing embellishments and papers you get with your Bundle!

The Rose Cafe' collection has beautiful bright papers in various shades of blue, yellow and white, soft pale pink with burgundy and brown accents.  The paper collection also contain two sheets of small images, which can be used as images on cards or in Project Life page sleeves.  Also included in this bundle is an "Ephemera" pack, Bo Bunny's signature "Noteworthy" pack, (40 coordinating die cuts), a pack of coordinating "Layered Chipboard",  one pack of 21 coordinating "Chipboard Buttons", "Stamp Stickers" and a really cool "Film Strip" sticker!

With all these wonderful embellishments, I knew the Rose Cafe' Bundle was going to be just perfect for making a Collage" Valentine card.  A "Collage Card" is made from various images and found objects arranged together to create a cohesive project. This is what I made:

Collage cards are fun to assemble and you can really show off your creative side!  Today I am going to share with you how to make this beautiful Valentine Collage card,  using some of the gorgeous embellishments from the Bo Bunny Rose Cafe Bundle!

Here's what you will need to get started:
A card base measuring 5 x 6 1/2 (when folded horizontally)  
Bo Bunny's Rose Cafe Bundle by FotoBella
(from your Bundle, select the chipboard buttons, ephemera pack, layered chipboard, and 3 papers from the paper pack, 1) "Post" 2) "French Roast" and 3) Dreamers
Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet
Ink applicator tool
Bone Folder
Distressing Tool
Paper Trimmer
Pink Ribbon (optional)
Tape Runner or Paper Glue 
Pop Dots
Stickles or Glitter Pen

Here are the pieces needed to assemble this card. You may want to gather them before you begin!

With an ink applicator tool, use Victorian Velvet Distress Ink to shade the edges of your card base. (Your card base should measure 5" x 6 1/2 ")

Cut out a rectangle measuring 5 " x 6.5"from the back side of the paper called "Post".
This will cover the entire base of the card front.

You will want to cut it so that the flourish is on the Top Right side of the paper.

Cut the Pink Dot rectangle from the paper "Dreamers". Trim the right edge so it measures 5 5/8"inches.

Ink the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink if desired.

Now select the paper called "French Roast"and turn it to the Burgundy side

Cut the burgundy "French Roast"  paper to measure 6 1/8 x 4 1/8.

 Place the cut rectangle with the Pink Dots on top of the paper  before cutting, 
to ensure there is a 1/4 " border around it on all sides.

Distress the the edges of the burgundy layer of your card (if desired)

Now that you have cut out and prepared your papers, adhere them to your card.  The large paper covers the entire card base.  The burgundy and pink papers are centered and adhered to the center of the card as shown.  You are now ready to add the embellishments!
From the Ephemera pack, select the "amazing" floral banner, and the pink banner with the big brown flower and 2 flags.)  Adhere the "amazing" banner to the card, just slightly below the burgundy banner as shown but as you adhere it, tuck the "live beautifully" banner underneath it, if desired.  
(see below)
Remove the bird sticker from it's background layer, place a small pink rose behind the bird's head, then press it down on the brown flower.  Cut the right flag from the banner, and set it aside.  
(We will be using it later.)
From the Noteworthy pack, select the brown banner with the two points.  Cut the angles of the brown banner to match the angles of the pink flower banner so it will act as a shadow.  (See below)
Adhere the pink and brown floral banner to the top of the card with pop dots.  
Tuck the brown banner under the left pink banner to act as a shadow. (as shown)

Add the layered chipboard banner to the top left side of the card.  
Place the chipboard sticker "wonderful" to the top right side of the card.
Adhere two burgundy buttons to the bottom right side of the card. 
Use the photo below as your guide to placement of these embellishments.
With a glitter pen or Stickles, add some shimmer to the bird.
You may wish to add more embellishments, or perhaps a ribbon or bow.
Stamp the inside of the card with "Happy Valentine's Day" and you are finished!

For fun, I made a variation of this same card.
