Hi Everyone!

Wow, time flies! I have been busy with my Farmers’ Market Booth ! Now, that is done, and my card shop is decimated, (which I think is a good thing!) it’s time to start creating some new, beautiful cards!

This wasn’t a difficult card to make, but it was difficult to decide HOW to decorate it!

Supplies: 5 x7 hinge card, Rose creations dies, spellbinder rose leaf die, Sue Wilson maiden fern die, Sizzix ornate distressed frame, chipboard (cereal box) rhinestone bling, watercolor paper- 140# cold press 2 pieces cut 5 x7, pearl shimmer paper- 2 pieces cut 5 x7 distressed edges, rose leaves, prima baroque stencil, heart stencil, embossing paste, anniversary stamp- I used a justrite stamp. Staz-on black ink, vellum, white seam binding ribbon, hot glue.

Directions: Make a 5 x7 hinge card, then fold top half in half to make the easel. Cut one more piece of cardstock 5 x 7 glue to folded portion and it will stand up to make the front of the card. Use the baroque stencil to stencil the 2 5 x7  panels of watercolor paper, set aside to dry. Cut your roses from watercolor paper, ink the middles with spun sugar, shape with a bone folder, assemble with hot glue. Cut your leaves ink with peeled paint. Stamp Happy Anniversary with Staz-on black ink, set aside to dry. Cut two frames from chipboard, glue together, cut one frame with silver cardstock and glue on top. brush with some white acrylic paint to dull the silver a bit. Assemble the card as shown in the pics. Insert a bow made from seam binding ribbon.

The pocket on the back of the card was made with a leftover rose and some paper. I stenciled the heart, cut the paper to fit the space and cut another one to make the pocket. Use a 1 inch hole punch to make a half circle punch for sliding the card in and out. Cut a piece of cardstock to fit inside, hole punch, put on some ribbon, glue a flower and some leaves. Insert into the pocket. Glue the pocket on the back of the card.  Enjoy!

Have a beautiful day!
