Hi all. Well, guess what, another anniversary. I have been looking at challenges and trying to get some different ideas as my anniversary mojo is packing up at the moment..lol. Anyway I found a sketch to start with over at CAS(E) this Sketch No 185 and here it is .....
..... now for the card .....
I cut the two hearts using a snippet of white card and a Nellie Snellen Multi Frame Heart die, and stamped the musical notes with Eggplant Adirondack Ink. I used the musical notes from a set of stamps which were a freebie with a Creative Stamping Magazine. I then blended ink on the hearts with a combination of Shaded Lilac Distress Ink and the Adirondack Eggplant to darken the edges.
I then cut the two layers of stitched scallops using a set of Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Borders dies. I then cut a strip from another snippet of white card and added two different stitch patterns from a MFT set of Basic Stitched Lines dies and coloured the strip with the same inks as for the hearts. I then layered them up. At the moment these are quite hard to find in the UK.
I cut two sizes of white squares to layer up on my white square base card and I inked round the edge of the larger one in order to get the a matching colour, and layered them up on to the base card. I then added the hearts using Pinflair glue gel, and then added the scallop layer.
I finished with the Sue Wilson Congratulations die which I have had laying on my table waiting for the right opportunity to present itself, and this was it.
See you soon and hope you have an enjoyable weekend.
