The Love We Give Away…

Hi friends.  Today I have a beautiful card featuring dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and a lovely sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design.  I’ve been doing a lot of cards lately using various frame dies as my background paper.  I just love this look.

I started with a piece of white cardstock and covered the back with Stick It adhesive.  I then centered the die on the right side of the paper and ran it through my Big Sister Die Cutting Machine.  Then you simply peel and stick the die cut to a piece of pink cardstock.  I then cut it down to my desired size and then I created the rest of my layers and adhered them to my top fold card base.  My lovely sentiment from Quietfire Design was stamped and then cut out with the Rectangle Pierce & Cut Large Silver die, layered and adhered to the center of my card.
I created the beautiful roses using the Small and Large Tea Rose dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I cut the layers, stamped them with an old script stamp for texture and inked the edges.  I then shaped the petals and assembled to create the roses.  I added them to my card below the sentiment.
My beautiful bow that tops off the card was created with my Bow-it-All V2.0 with Grape Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and Pearl Pink Diamond Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Cheery Lynn Designs Dies used:
My beaufiful bi-color double-loop bow is the real show stopper.  It’s made using 5/8″ Sherbet Deliciate Stitched Satin Ribbon and 5/8″ Emerald Plaid Ribbon from the February Ribbon Club Assortment.  The bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  I also ran a strip of the 5/8″ Pistachio Satin with Grosgrain Edge Ribbon topped with 3/8″ Mixed Green Vertical Stripe Ribbon across the middle of the card under the sentiment for more texture.  Both of those styles are from the February assortment as well.  I love the mix of darker green and lighter almost yellow green colors.  Add in a zing of pink and it’s really quite eye catching.
