Hi everybody. I made this anniversary card for family members a while ago but have only just got round to showing it here. For this one I have used a couple of dies by Sue Wilson Die from Creative Expressions called Heart of Hearts and Congratulations. The scalloped edges were cut with the largest square die from a set by Tonic. The last thing I used was a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder called Divine Swirls, which doesn't seem to be available anywhere at the moment, although the swirls don't show up very well in the photo.
I started by cutting the black layer with the Tonic scalloped square die using a snippet of black card. I laid it down on the card approximately where I wanted it to be and cut it roughly to shape. I then placed the heart die, the smaller of the two outside edge dies and cut the heart out of the black card. I then embossed using the Divine Swirls and ran it through a second time to extend the pattern.
I then cut two hearts using the same die, one from a snippet of red card and one from a snippet of white. Using the multi heart die I cut out the little hearts from the white heart. I then layered up the white on top of the red.
To finish I cut the sentiment from another snippet of red card which I backed with the Stick It adhesive.
After layering it all up I cut a few more hearts of various sizes using the leftover adhesive backed red card and placed these randomly as you can see.
Thank you for looking at my blog today. See you again soon.

Fabulous design, Pat. Red, white and black always look so striking together. I love the heart die cut, it really stands out against the black. xx
so sweet :) Thank you for playing along with us at simon says stamp wednesday challenge!!
A fabulous card and a great design.
Really elegant card Pat - and beautifully thought out and executed. From what I read it seems you inlaid the heart - which is such a neat finish I think.
Oh Pat this is a really lovely card. The heart is a super die and that embossing folders is still one of my favourites. Really lovely design work. A beautiful card. Barbxx
What a stylish card Pat and I love black and red colours together!
A beautiful anniversary card, wishing them many more happy anniversaries too.
Beautiful card, I love how you added all the little heart die cuts. Sue Wilson dies are FABULOUS. Take care, Shirley xx
Very pretty Pat. Love the angled black panel with the dry embossing ... can definitely see the pattern. Pairs beautifully with the heart of hearts. xx
Oooh, I LOVE the drama of this Pat, so unusual! The black, white and red go wonderfully together! Thank you for popping by my blog today, I'm still not back crafting fully yet, my post was scheduled a few months ago (luckily), but I really appreciated your visit! Have a lovely evening! Hazel xx
