Watercolored backgrounds highlight the delicate scribbles of  the Antique Corner Rose Label on a simple, caring card. The new Antique Corner Rose Label gets a fresh contemporary look in shades of peach, coral and yellow.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a quick design and some inspiration for June's Cute As a Button Challenge.

Cut Antique Corner Rose Label from textured white cardstock - leave the offcuts in the die.  The leaves and small scribble rosebud on the right will be paper-pieced later.  

Paint watercolor paper with Peerless Watercolors and airdry it.  Cut two of the smallest Scribble Roses Background.  Cut circles with the ½" and ¾" Circle Basics dies.  Paint the centers yellow.

Stamp "hugs" - from the Big and Little Words Clear Stamp Set - on the smoother side of Coral Creme cardstock with Morning Mist VersaFine Clair. Dry the ink, then diecut the greeting with the center strip section of the die.

Attach the watercolored pieces behind the roses.  Attach the label outline to a side-folded gray A-2 card.  Attach the saved leaves and the small rose on the right.  Attach the greeting.  The two top leaves and the greeting will cover the portions of the rose that extend beyond the scribble outlines.

Tie two peach-colored buttons with dark yellow twine.  Glue the buttons to the with a strong liquid adhesive - like Tacky Glue.

Write a thoughtful note on the inside - and send your card to someone who could use a hug right now.
