I wanted to make something special for my husband and this said exactly what I wanted to say: "Whenever I need someone to share my joys, or someone to hold my hand when my world falls to pieces you're there. And I know you will always be...tomorrow and forever..."
I do not create cards very often, but when I do I like square cards - maybe they remind me of scrapbook pages! Anyway, I love the mix of the floral pattern and swirls on this paper and cut a 5.75" square for the background of the card. The cardstock for this was cut 12"x6" then folded in half to create the base.
I fussy cut one of the flowers and some of the leaves from the same paper. You can see I popped it up with foam adhesive then added a Blue Steel pearl to the center of each of these blooms.
The smaller flower was cut from a sheet of Calypso and I tucked in a couple more leaves.
The sentiment was die cut and embossed and I used Blue Jeans Powder Puff Chalking Ink to create a soft frame before highlighting the edges with teardrop pearls.
Here is a little video to show you how easy it is to create this look using Spellbinders dies:
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
