A Blog Named Hero April Challenge: Anniversary

Hello everyone! I’m back with another challenge for you from A Blog Named Hero. This month’s challenge (April) is Anniversary. For the challenge announcement post, I created a more masculine card that featured an eclipse technique as well as a galaxy background. This card is pretty much the complete opposite! It features lots of flowers and bright colors.

I started with an A2 sized panel of Lavender cardstock and stamped the small print text in the Sending Mail stamp set with clear embossing ink. I used the Floral Love set to stamp, emboss and die cut the Love letters from the lavender panel. I also cut two additional layers of letters from white cardstock to add dimension.

I cut many flowers and greenery out of white cardstock from the Envelope Accessories Fancy dies and Bouquet Accessories Fancy dies. I used Copic markers to color all of the elements in various shades. After coloring, I inlaid one of the white love layers to enable me to place all the lovely flowers. I made sure to cut the flowers down so that they didn’t overlap under the letters. This would have given it a much more bulky look that I didn’t want. After all of my elements were placed on the panel, I glued the remaining Love letters together for the dimensional look that I wanted.

The “you with all my heart” sentiment was white heat embossed onto Amethyst cardstock and fussy cut. I adhered a few scrap pieces of white cardstock on the back to ensure that it would be the same level as the dimensional Love letters. And for one final touch, I used a white and gold gelly roll pen to add a little more detail to the flowers within the letters. I think that it makes them stand out just a bit more.
