Happy Anniversary

Hello Dies R Us friends. Lena here today to share a card I made for my daughter and her hubby as they celebrate their 9th wedding anniversary.


Now for a quick pictorial ~ I began by cutting out my background die in red and the base die in white.
Using Memento London Fog ink, I sponged all the embossed areas. It's always better to do this while the card stock is still in the die.


Next I cut my leaves and my flowers.  I used Memento Bamboo Leaves ink to highlight the embossed areas. For these tiny areas, I always use a little make up applicator as I feel it works better in transferring the ink to cardstock.


All that was left was to build the tulip bouquet.  I should have been smart and applied double sided adhesive to the card stock before die cutting the little tulips, but since I used my FineLine Applicator Bottle, it didn't take too long before they were all adhered and assembled.


On the inside, I used the largest circle from Anja's Circle by Marianne Designs to cut the red mat.
I used the circle that comes with Petra's Amazing Circle to cut the white mat where I will be writing my message.  I cut out another bunch of tulips for a little something extra.  Oh, yes, I almost forgot ... I stamped the greeting and cut out two little birds to hold it in place on the front of the card.


Here is a quick recap of the materials I used.


Remember that the Marianne Design dies are normally under Special Orders in the store.  Every so often, Dies R Us runs a big sale on international dies. During these times, you will find dies from companies such as Marianne Designs, Lea'bilities, and Joy Crafts among others. The best way to know about these fabulous sales is to subscribe to the Dies R Us Newsletter.  When you go to the store's home page,  scroll down to the bottom.  There you will find a box where you can enter your email address and be put on their mailing list.

That is it from me for today, crafting friends. I hope you enjoyed your visit and that I was able to inspire you to use your dies, create a project, and come play along with us at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog for your chance to win a gift voucher to the Dies R Us Store.  A new challenge begins on the 1st and 15th of every month.  Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Pinterest too.
