Hey everyone, Anne here from Anne-Made and today I'd like to share an anniversary card I created for the Dies R Us Inspiration team.  

I started out by die cutting four of the Chloe stems from white cardstock.  I also die cut the Lovely Border from white as I was going to create a white on white card (not easy for me, although so many make them effortlessly).

Using the Noble dies and some specialty papers from Tonic Studios, I die cut my mats.

After doing a "dry assembly" of everything, I decided I didn't like it, but I loved the antique gold specialty paper.  So, I got out some antique gold embossing powder and embossed my Chloe stems and die cut the Lovely Border from some dark red cardstock (sorry no photo of that step lol).

When I was cleaning out my Lovely Borders die of all the little hearts and dots, I thought they would make a great filling for a future shaker card, so I collected them for later. I'll keep adding to this little container every time I use this die.

I assembled everything again and was happy with the results. If you look closely at the photo below, I only adhered small portions of the Chloe stems to the red cardstock as I wanted them to be dimensional.

Here's one last look at the finished project.  (Hope my hubby likes his anniversary card.😍)

  1. Gorgeous card! The red/gold combination is very elegant. That Chloe die is beautiful and one of my favorite. Glad I'm not the only one that changes her mind half way through the creating process.
