Pastel Floral Anniversary

Hi guys

Tonight I thought I'd share another of the Anniversary cards I made for my stash last weekend. 

I love how pretty this one turned out and it was fairly easy to create too.

I started by die cutting a heart aperture (sorry, it's that heart again!) from a panel of white cardstock.  Before I created the rest of the heart detail I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in platinum.  I then die cut the Gardenia flower and placed it behind the aperture, adhering the edges to the reverse of the panel.  Behind this I secured some glittered patterned paper.  The panel was then popped up on fun foam onto the card base.

Materials used:

  • Dies: MFT Die-namics - Stitched Heart Stax; Memory Box - Gorgeous Gardenia Outline
  • Stamp: Clearly Besotted - Mr and Mrs
  • Ink: VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Metallic Platinum
  • Patterned Paper: By Decotime - unknown name

  1. What a beautiful CAS design, Anita! Love how you combined the die cuts. Unfortunately we require a hand colored image so in fairness to all, it must be deleted. (sniff, sniff!) I'm sooo sorry and hope you understand. There's plenty of time to try again, though. Hope to see you back at Aurora Wings. xxD
