I've swapped some crafty goodies (on a temporary loan basis) with my friend Angela and the flower vase stamp is from a set of hers. I stamped it onto watercolour paper with VersaFine black ink, heat embossed it with clear powder, coloured the image with a variety of ink colours and a water brush and fussy cut it. I left the image out on my desk for a couple of days and then my friend Kath asked me to make an anniversary card for her son Ian and his wife Jan. I decided to incorporate my ready-to-go image on that card!
The card base is made with Rose Red CS and measures 5 1/4" square. I die cut a large Pink Pirouette heart, dry embossed it with the Cuttlebug Victoria folder and lightly brayered Rose Red ink over the top. I die cut two more hearts, one in Brushed Gold CS and the smallest heart in Pink Pirouette CS. The gold and pink hearts plus the vase are popped up. I computer generated the sentiment using the Lobster Two font, die cut it with a tag frame die and popped it up. I punched and shaped three small flowers, added those to the card and placed a rhinestone in each flower centre. To complete the card front I sprinkled on a few gold sequins.
Here's the inside and the envelope with more hearts, flowers and a sentiment.
