Today wanted to share with you this beautiful card I’ve made for my friend to give to his wife on their anniversary. I’m usually avoiding bold colours and rather stick to pastel palette, but from time to time I’m trying to stretch myself by leaving my comfort zone. And what’s better colour to use for love card?? Off course it has to be red.
I wanted to keep this card simple and elegant, but to make it more special I’ve made a little shaker, which I’ve filled with tiny heart sequins. To make this paper behind shaker I’ve stamp and embossed a lovely stamp from Viva Decor set called Love. The front panel is dry embossed, and to enhance the pattern even more I’ve stick a little pearls to it.
These little flowers are cut from white card and then I coloured them with my distress inks and attached little pearl in the centre.
To make it more special I’ve packed card into a box instead of envelope and I also made a matching tag to go with it.
