Good Afternoon ! My husband & I were away in Scotland for the past week to help celebrate one of his Aunt's & Uncle's 60th (Diamond) Wedding Anniversary. We had such a great time visiting with everyone and touring around the beautiful country. Jim's family were so kind to us, we were well looked after. We arrived back home today, so I'm quite jet-lagged. I'm behind in blogging but thought I would post the card that I created for the happy couple.
I picked up heart shaped dies after hand drawing hearts and cutting them out for Valentines cards. This was the first time trying them out. I intended to create a card that was mainly white with a bit of pastel but somehow deep purple crept in. And once again I used my new Crealie Dies to add flowers with the heart.
I created the background with Impression Obsession's Cover a Card Tapestry CC025. I stamped it with Versa Mark and embossed with White and blended Tattered Rose, Milled Lavender and a little Dusty Concord Distress Inks over the embossing.
The sentiment is from Inkadinkado's Love and Friendship Set 99644. 'All you need is Love' was stamped with Color Box Boysenberry Pigment Ink and embossed with Clear on the inner heart. I blended the same Distress Inks over the heart and the white cardstock used for some of the flowers. I added lots of clear rhinestones for the "Diamonds" and tiny little stickers with the happy couple's initials. I also added a tiny 60 below the sentiment, but did that after I took the photo !
Dies used: Crealies: CL CF 17 flowers & CL CS 11 shapes. Nellie's Multi frames - MFD 022 (hearts).
That's all for now. Thanks for stopping in and have a great day !
