Here is a very simple card to make for birthdays or anniversaries.
I used my Perfect Medium by Ranger to write the sentiment. I then embossed it with gold embossing powder. It seems thick because it is a sentiment that would have cut out from the Calligraphy cartridge. I find cutting these tiny letters tedious. If you didn't want to emboss you could use gold vinyl, it cuts small lettering much better.
I embossed the oval with a Cuttlebug folder I picked up off the clearance rack somewhere. Of course you could use an oval you cut out if you don't have this embossing folder. I was just looking for a way to use this folder. Added a few little flowers and bling.
My inspiration was the image below, Image 3D Floral Decor.
The flowers with this image were too hard to put together at this size, so I just used a simple daisy image from the Flower Shoppe cartridge,
I used Smokey Plum cardstock for the flowers and Olive for the leaves, available from Close to My Heart . I used a marker to darken the stems for depth.
Super simple and elegant. I may be using this leaf element for more cards, I thought it came together nicely.
Till next time.
