Happy Anniversary

Hi friends.  Today I’m sharing a lovely spring themed anniversary card featuring the new Mehndi Botanicals 3 die set from Cheery Lynn Designs along with some gorgeous ribbon and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I started with an A2 top fold card base made with white cardstock.  I stamped my sentiment on the bottom of the card base and used the Curved Border set to create the layered background for the top portion of the card.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:
I created the papers that I used for the flower and leaves using several colors of distress inks and I then spritzed it with water to create some visual interest.  I cut the flower layers and inked the edges of the petals.  I then used a stylus and foam pad to shape the petals and leaves before assembling the flower.  The center was finished off with a 12mm Dotted Wave Rhinestone from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

My bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Tropic and Light Coral Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This gorgeous ribbon comes in 37 beautiful colors and is perfect for tying gorgeous bows.
