Todays design team contribution is actually a card I made way back in March for my parents anniversary but never got round to sharing as I wanted to share it for the Anything Goes with Dies challenge at Happy Little Stampers.
I took some pretty peach and pink coloured cardstock and die cut lots of the pretty leave die from the Stampin Up Artistic die set. Using these I created a spray effect.
Then I took some of the rose gold foiled cardstock from my stash and cut out the main floral cluster and a label from the Christmas Labels set.
I also cut another smaller label for layering under the floral cluster.
I decided rather than stamp a sentiment I would use the Crafters Companion On your anniversary die and cut that out and back it with the rose gold to make sure the word was more visible.
When arranging the card I wanted something a little more… so took a panel of white cardstock and embossed it with the old paper folder (I often forget to emboss and am always kicking myself when I do it as I should use the folders more!). This created a subtle but beautiful texture for the cluster.
I used foam between layers to give the card some dimension and then inside I heat embossed the stamped sentiment and used left over scraps of the same cardstock to add leaves in the corner.
I didn’t end up doing any decorating on the envelope as I hadn’t used any patterned paper and figured the die cut would be unnecessary.
So my parents loved the card (way back in April) and I must admit looking again at the pictures I am so pleased with it too! It also makes a nice change in pace to look at this rather than Christmas stuff!
