Today I wanted to end 2012 with the type of card that you liked the most and received the most comments this year; I found white cards with flowers won out.
To create this card, I used the eBosser "Delicate Dots" embossing folder for this 5.5" x 6" card. The eBosser embossing folders are large and I was able to emboss the entire front with one time through the machine. The large heart is from the Cherry Lynn "Heart To Heart Lace Doily Set" hearts. In the center I used the heart die from the Heartfelt Creations "Timeless Armour" die set. In the center of the hearts, I stamped one of the sentiments from the Our Daily Bread "Birthday Blessings" stamp set.
The pretty flowers were die cut using the Heartfelt Creations "Delicate Asters" dies. I die cut six each from three of the dies, shaped them and glued the six layers together, alternating the petals to create a full flower. Under the Asters I added the new Marianne Design "Floral Flourish" and the Joy! Crafts leaves. There is a flourish on both the left side and across the bottom of the card. Kaiser Craft pearls were added to the center of the flowers and around the Heartfelt Creations heart. To give the card some "glimmer" I add Tim Holtz "Distress Stickles Dry Glitter".
It has been a very exciting year for me. I love being Joan's designer and working with all the different products from Joan's Gardens, and hope we have given you a lot of inspiration for the products you love to use. I had the opportunity to go out to Indiana and spend some one-on-one time with Joan and then go to CHA with her to view all the new products and give my input on things we thought you would love to work with. I have loved creating for all the weekly challenges and seeing all your beautiful cards each week. I value all your visits to my blog and truly appreciate all the comments you leave. Thanks to all of you that follow me on my blog and all the friendships we have created from around the world. I want to wish you much happiness in the new year. I am looking forward to another year sharing ideas with you.
