Happy Anniversary Card

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I have an elegant Anniversary card to share with you using the Layering Nested Heart and the Stitched Scallop Heart dies. Most of us have Alcohol Ink backgrounds and if you are like me I don’t use them. Today’s card will show you how to use them. Below are the steps to create your own card. Please note that it is very hard to photograph mirror cardstock so you will see some background images in the photos.

Step 1 – Trim White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Trim Purple Mirror Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. Adhere to card using Scor-Tape.

Step 3 – Apply Alcohol Blending Solution onto yupo paper in drops and swirls. Shake thoroughly and apply drops of Alcohol Pearl Inks. Tilt the paper to let the ink move. Add more Alcohol Blending Solution and Alcohol Pearl Inks until you reach the desired effect. Just before it completely dries place a sheet of Wild Dandelion Foiling on top of the alcohol background. Use your finger to press it to maximize the foiling to the alcohol background. Remove and repeat in sections. Let completely dry. This takes a few hours.

Step 4 – Diecut Stitched Scallop Heart using Gold Mirror Cardstock. Adhere to card front using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Step 5 – Diecut Layering Nested Heart using the background created in Step 3. Adhere to card front using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Step 6 – Diecut Happy Father’s Day (try using just the word Happy) using Gold Mirror Cardstock. Trim the excess word so you are just left with Happy. Adhere to card using Collage Medium.

Step 7 – Stamp sentiment on Red Mirror Cardstock using Versamark. Sprinkle Gold Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a heat tool. A reminder to apply an anti static powder tool before adding the versamark to prevent the embossing powder adhering to areas where you don’t want it. Trim the sentiment and adhere to card using foam tape.

This card can be used for any occasion by changing the colors, the shape of the dies and sentiment. To receive 10% off your order use code: TINA10 at checkout. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
