Hello crafty friends and Happy Valentine's Day! Whether you love or hate the holiday, it is still a great reason to make cards (and eat chocolate, of course)! Today I am on the Birch Press Design blog sharing an elegant and more traditional card using the beautiful new Adornment Peony dies.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. Using the Pinpoint Radial Layer Plate, I die cut that first embossed layer from white cardstock. To create the peonies, I die cut the solid base layer from red cardstock (6" x 6" Berry Paper pack) and the top thin outline layer from red foil cardstock. I die cut the solid base layer of the leaves from light green cardstock and the top thin outline layer from darker green cardstock. I used the 6" x 6" Lush Green Paper pack. I adhered all the layers together with a fine tip liquid glue.
I die cut the word "hugs" using the Hugs Sugar Script dies. I cut the larger shadow bottom layer from black cardstock and top thinner outline from gold glitter cardstock. I adhered both layers together with a fine tip liquid glue and then adhered the entire sentiment over the peonies using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.
Lastly, I added a couple rhinestones to the top and bottom of the card for added texture. Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful love, hugs (and chocolate) filled day!
