Hi everybody. It is our 41st anniversary and I made hubby this card using a set by Lawn Fawn called Toucan Do It which I was lucky enough to win in a giveaway over at Marjan's Blog and I thought the toucans would make a fun card.
I started by cutting a piece of blue card to fit a 6" square white card and decided to emboss a heart onto it using a Sweet Dixie die large enough to fit the toucans inside...not something I have done very often but it worked well. I placed the first toucan and heat embossed using WOW Metallic Platinum Embossing Powder, and then masked it to place the branch it is perching on, and at the same time I placed the other flying toucan and the little hearts, and also the fun sentiment..all from the same set and also heat embossed with the Platinum EP. I then ink blended around the card to frame the heart using Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink applied with a blending brush, and then to darken the edge Chipped Sapphire DI. I attached this to the white card and then decided to add a die cut sentiment, and in order to match it to the other embossing I covered a piece of white card with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with two layers of the Platinum EP. I also added a piece of Stick It Adhesive to the back before die cutting it, and then I attached it to the card as you can see just slightly overlapping the embossed heart.
Thank you for dropping by today and I'll see you again soon.
