Happy Anniversary ~ Falling Flowers

Yesterday was our 16th Wedding Anniversary – it seems incredible ~ those years have flown by so fast.  I made a card for my husband and tried very hard to give it a bit of a masculine twist, I think I captured it in the colors but perhaps the bow was a little too ‘girly’ – but he took it very well.

Card base:  11 x 4 1/4 Crumb Cake Card ~ scored @ 5 1/2

Layer 1:  5 1/4 x 4 Very Vanilla Card ~ run thru Big Shot with the ‘Gently Falling’ embossing folder

Layer 2:  3 1/2 x 2 3/4 Crumb Cake Card

Layer 3:  3 1/2 x 2 1/2 Early Expresso Card

Ink Colors:  Early Expresso and Versamark

The ‘swirly flower’ focal piece was created by heat embossing the largest stamp in the Falling Flowers Stamp Set in copper.  First by stamping the image with Versamark, then sprinkling copper embossing powder over the top before melting it with the heat tool (after tapping off the excess powder) it gives such a rich effect and I just love it!

The greeting comes from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set which has a greeting for practically every occasion – so it is a great investment.

This is the card my husband gave to me, he said it was hard to find something ‘arty’ ~  didn’t  he did well?  The heart has cut-work backed with glimmer paper which is gold and ‘Bermuda Bay’ ~ I can also see Calypso Coral and Pool Party in there as well!
