I very seldom case cards designed by others, but my friend Glenda Brooks designed a card for Heartfelt Creations that I really loved and I couldn't resist creating one similar. You can see Glenda's gorgeous card here.
My card is 5.5" x 6". A piece of bright pink card stock was layered on top. The pink layer is covered with a piece of vellum that was embossed using the new Spellbinders M-Bossabilities "Splendid" (EL-005) embossing folder. The corners are some of the new Cheery Lynn "Lace Corner Deco E" (B165) set. In the center of the card a large Spellbinders Oval was die cut and sponged with pink ink prior to taking it out of the die. The large cross from the Heartfelt Creations "Going to the Chapel PreCut Set" (HCPC3451) was gold embossed on white card stock and cut out with the matching dies (HCP719). The gold cross was die cut with another die from this set (HCP719) using gold card stock. At the top and bottom of this oval, I placed a die cut flourish from Memory Box "Amira Flourish" (98182).
Two sizes of Lilies from the Heartfelt Creations Pristine Lilies PreCut Set" (HCPC3452) were white embossed on vellum. There are two layers for each flower. The flowers were shaped and small pearl stamens were inserted in the center of each flower. Leaves from Marianne Design (LR0156).
Thank you Glenda for the inspiration for this beautiful card.
