Cricut Art Philosophy Non-spiral Paper Roses Tutorial

The new Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge has some great cut images for creating 3-D spiral flowers. However, for these roses I used a different method. I created the three larger roses on this card using the 'Flower3' image on the cartridge. These roses are similar to the roses that I have been making for years that are completely hand cut. You can find a tutorial for them here.

The sketch I used for this card is 'The Deconstructed Sketch #39' found here.

I love how this card turned out. You can find out how I colored the seam binding here. Love the new 'Thanks' stamp set - very elegant. I cut the Grey Wool circle at 3 1/4", the Colonial White circle at 3".

Please see my video tutorial below to see how I put the roses together. I love the little knock-off Prima fairytale roses also and hope to put together another tutorial next week. You can learn how to make these by going to You Tube and searching for Prima Fairytale roses. After watching a couple of these videos I came up with a method that is basically the same with a few minor differences.
